Jody

A basic bdd framework to work with node so that I can learn a bit of javascript and node. Adds a method on to all objects to test using should(). It can test callbacks and events

To Install

npm Jody

To Use

run Jody <file_name>

or Create specs in ./spec and then: run Jody

Usage

var describe = require('Jody').describe;

describe("New set of specs").
  beforeEach(function () {
  }).
  it("Should test something", function() {
    var i = 0;
    i += 1;
    i.should().beEqual(1);
  });

Async

Add the function *async* to each callback that you want to test again. This will allow for Jody to determine if the test was successful

describe("Async spec").
  it("Should only assert at the end", function (atEnd) {

    asyncTest(async(function(val1,val2){
      val1.should().beTrue();
      val2.should().beFalse();
    }));
  });

Http

See examples/http_spec.js

Before All and After All Specs

For functional testing the following can be used for a beforeAll and after All. require('Jody').configure.beforeAll(function (done) { // some setup before specs done();
});

require('Jody').configure.afterAll(function (done) {
  // clean up after all tests run
  done();   
});

A spec_helper.js file in your specs directory will be executed before all specs. A good place to put your before all and after all.

Examples
