Project build

The project is managed using Grunt Task Runner.

For a list of available task, type

grunt --help

The following sections show the available options in detail.

Testing

Mocha Test Runner + Chai Assertion Library + Sinon Spies, stubs.

The test environment is preconfigured to run BDD testing style with chai.expect and chai.should() available globally while executing tests, as well as the Sinon-Chai plugin.

Module mocking during testing can be done with proxyquire

To run tests, type

grunt test

Tests reports can be used together with Jenkins to monitor project quality metrics by means of TAP or XUnit plugins. To generate TAP report in report/test/unit_tests.tap, type

grunt test-report

Coding guidelines

jshint, gjslint

Uses provided .jshintrc and .gjslintrc flag files. The latter requires Python and its use can be disabled while creating the project skeleton with grunt-init. To check source code style, type

grunt lint

Checkstyle reports can be used together with Jenkins to monitor project quality metrics by means of Checkstyle and Violations plugins. To generate Checkstyle and JSLint reports under report/lint/, type

grunt lint-report

Continuous testing

Support for continuous testing by modifying a src file or a test. For continuous testing, type

grunt watch

Source Code documentation

dox-foundation

Generates HTML documentation under site/doc/. It can be used together with jenkins by means of DocLinks plugin. For compiling source code documentation, type

# Currently not supported on Windows
grunt doc

Code Coverage

Istanbul

Generates HTML coverage under site/coverage/ and coverage report in report/coverage/cobertura-coverage.xml. The latter one can be used together with Jenkins to monitor project quality metrics by means of Cobertura plugin. For analyzing the code coverage of your test, type

# Currently not supported on Windows
grunt coverage

Code complexity

Plato

Analizes code complexity using Plato and stores the report under site/report/. It can be used together with jenkins by means of DocLinks plugin. For complexity report, type

grunt complexity

PLC

Update the contributors for the project

grunt contributors

Development environment

Initialize your environment with git hooks

grunt init-dev-env

Site generation

There is a grunt task to generate the GitHub pages of the project, publishing also coverage, complexity and JSDocs pages. In order to initialize the GitHub pages, use:

grunt init-pages

This will also create a site folder under the root of your repository. This site folder is detached from your repository's history, and associated to the gh-pages branch, created for publishing. This initialization action should be done only once in the project history. Once the site has been initialized, publish with the following command:

grunt site

This command will only work after the developer has executed init-dev-env (that's the goal that will create the detached site).

This command will also launch the coverage, doc and complexity task (see in the above sections).
