automate

Not really ready for prime time. Works well for us

Automated javascript testing. Esp for phonegap applications where you need to bundle integration tests with the app and test on an actual device.

Dependencies

  • Only npm support at this point. So you'll need something like browserify to bundle it into the browser.
  • requires jQuery

Has two components.

  • Server: a reporting server where test run information is logged
  • lib/automate.js is the runner code that needs to be bundled with the js app

Install

npm install automatejs

Server

Start the server using

node app.js 
//or
npm start

Automatejs client library

Create an instance of automate for each run. This creates a unique run id, used to submit reports to server

var Automate = require("automate"),
var automate = new Automate(serverUrl, nameOfTest);

Now use the various methods to say what all you need to do

automate.tap("#foo div");
automate.waitFor(300);
automate.tap("#bar span");

Add your asserts at any point. You can use any assert library, here I use chai.

automate.then(function() {
    expect($(".uiPageActive .subToolBar em").html()).to.contain.string("Philadelphia to SF");
});

Signal that you are done specifying your tests

automate.runAll(); //Runs each step one by one, and submits the report to server

API reference

Constructor

var automate = new Automate(automateSeverUrl, nameOfTest);
//example
var automate = new Automate("http://localhost:5000", "regression suite");

Methods

Tap

automate.tap(jQuerySelector);
//example
automate.tap("#foo");

fill a textbox or text input

automate.fill(selector, value);
//example
automate.fill("#loginUsername", "a@b.com");

select a drop down

automate.select(selector, value);
//example
automate.select("#environment", "production");

start/then: execute arbitrary piece of javascript at that time. Useful to add asserts. start and then are equivalent, just syntax sugar to indicate start of a test.

automate.start(function)
automate.then(function)
//example
automate.start(function(){
    expect($("#foo").val()).to.be(500);
});

waitFor: timeout or function

automate.waitFor(timeMilliSeconds);
automate.waitFor(fn)
fn: return true to indicate waitFor condition is met
//example
automate.waitFor(300);
automate.waitFor(function(){
    return ($("#foo").length === 1);
})

runAll: Signal that you are done specifying the test. Now run actions one by one. On each step, information will be logged in automate server. If there is an error in any step, it'll bail out.

automate.runAll()

module: Indicate start of a module. Once a module is set, any actions done like a tap are logged under that module. If none specified, all tests go into 'default' module. Module names should be unique, or reports will get messed up.

automate.module(moduleName)
//example
automate.module("login module")
