http request wrapper for jasmine integration testing


Integration-Test-Framework to simply request a server

npm install warp-node
npm test
Warp = require "warp-node"

  [ warp ] = []
  beforeEach ->
    warp = Warp.create()

    # Doing some asynchronous things, like starting a server and than call `warp.activate()`. 
  it "should respond without errors"->
    warp.execute (err, res, data) -> expect(err).toBeUndefined()
  it "should respond with status code 200"->
    warp.execute (err, res, data) -> expect(res.statusCode).toEqual(200)

Creating a new warp instance. Options is optionally an object with the following properties.

url: "GET http://localhost:3000/ping"   # Defining url for GET or POST requests including port and path 
data: "foo"                             # Data to be send using POST requests 
encoding: "UTF8"                        # Encoding of given data 
resEncoding: "UTF8"                     # Encoding of receiving response 
repeat: 5                               # Number of times the request have to be repeated 
delay: 200                              # Number of milliseconds the request call have to be delayed 

Activating the warp to get ready to test. This is usefull to starting a server what is mostly asynchonous.

Getter/Setter, defining url for GET or POST requests including port and path.

Getter/Setter, data to be send using POST requests.

Getter/Setter, encoding of given data.

Getter/Setter, encoding of receiving response.

Getter/Setter, number of times the request have to be repeated. repeat defaults to 1. If it is set to something higher the response data format changes from single values to lists of values for each call. See warp.execute.

Getter/Setter, number of milliseconds the request call have to be delayed.

Executing the test. Given callback provides the following information as single items. If warp.request.repeat is set to something higher than 1, the provided information are lists containing the data for each repeated request.

  • err, error object if something went wrong, else undefined
  • res, http response object
  • data, string containing received payload
