window

window

Exports a jsdom window object.

Build Status Coverage Status npm

Exports a jsdom window object. This is useful for enabling browser modules to run in Node.js or testing browser modules in any Node.js test framework.

Install

npm install --save window

Or if you're just using for testing you'll probably want:

npm install --save-dev window

Usage

const Window = require('window');
 
const window = new Window();
 
const div = window.document.createElement('div');
// HTMLDivElement 
 
div instanceof window.HTMLElement
// true 

Because window is just a normal JavaScript object it can be used more efficiently with object destructuring.

const { document } = new Window();
 
document.body.innerHTML = '<div class="foo">Hi!</div>';
document.body.querySelector('.foo').textContent;
// "Hi!" 

Config

You can also pass a jsdom config object that will be passed along to the underlying jsdom instance.

const jsdomConfig = { userAgent: 'Custom UA' };
const window = new Window(jsdomConfig);
 
window.navigator.userAgent;
// "Custom UA" 

Universal Testing Pattern

You can use a really simple pattern to enable your browser modules to run in Node.js. Just allow a window object to be passed in to your module and prepend any references to browser globals with win. Set win to the passed in window object if it exists, otherwise fallback to global window.

module.exports = function(text, win) {
  win = win || window;
 
  win.document.body.innerHTML = `<h1>${text}</h1>`;
  return window.document.querySelector('h1');
};

Browser usage:

module('Hi');
// <h1>Hi</h1> 

Node.js usage:

const window = new Window();
 
module('Hi', window);
// <h1>Hi</h1> 

Obviously you don't need to follow this exact pattern, maybe you already have an options object and you only need document not the entire window object:

module.exports = function(text, opts = {}) {
  const document = opts.document || window.document;
  ...
