Automate TAP browser unit tests with WebDriver

wd-tap-runner

Easily run TAP-producing JS unit tests in the browser, automated by WebDriver with Node.js. This is a helper module for wd-tap, this module sets up the test page and HTTP server for you.

The browser you are testing must have access to localhost, either running locally or through a tunnel.

var runner = require('wd-tap-runner'),
    wd = require('wd'),
    browserify = require('browserify');
 
var myCode = browserify().add('./test.js').bundle(),
    browser = wd.remote();
 
browser.init(function() {
    runner(src, browser, { port: 8000 }, function(errresults) {
        // results is parsed using tap-parser 
        browser.quit();
    });
});

Runs the tests in the browser. The browser must have access to localhost, either run the browser locally or open a tunnel to the remote browser.

src may be a stream or string of JS code that contains the tests that will be run. browser is the WebDriver browser (created by wd) that the tests will be run in. options may contain a port property which specifies what port the HTTP server will use (default is 8000). callback will be called with either an error or the TAP test results, parsed using tap-parser. Note that the error will be null even if some tests failed; the results indicate what tests passed or failed.

TAP results can be written to the browser's console. The test page automatically displays any output written using console.log.
