CSS Coverage!

Generates coverage information of your CSS (or LESS) files using the command line or in browser/GruntJS unit tests.

By hooking into BlanketJS you can use this with Jasmine, Mocha, QUnit, Coveralls, and tools like grunt-blanket-mocha.

How is this different from other CSS coverage tools?

Code coverage tools use Unit Tests to "exercise" the code and show you what is not tested; this project hooks into those same tools and gives you CSS coverage information for free!

It also:

  • gives coverage information on your source LESS files, not just the compiled CSS file
  • provides a command line script to run against individual test files or pages hosted on a website

TODO: Coverage currently runs after every test but there will be a function you can call in the middle of a test

Can I see it?

Check out the in-browser mocha demo! (see "blanket.js results" for the CSS coverage)



What can I do with css-coverage?

You can use the command line version to:

  • test a CSS and HTML file one at a time
  • use css-coverage as part of a build (like in GruntJS)
  • generate a LCOV Report for use in services like Coveralls or HTML reports using lcov

Can I make Reports?

You can also generate LCOV Files for Coveralls or just HTML reports:

# Run CSS Coverage and generate a LCOV report (with verbose output)
node ./bin/css-coverage -v -s ./test/test.css -h ./test/test.html -l ./css.lcov

# Optionally Generate an HTML report
genhtml ./css.lcov --output-directory ./coverage

Can I test Coverage of an entire Website?

You can generate CSS coverage of a website by providing a URL instead of a local file in the -h command line argument.

TODO: Write an example using CasperJS

Can I run it with mocha, Jasmine, QUnit?

Yep! It integrates with BlanketJS so you can see LESS/CSS coverage as well as JavaScript coverage.

All you need to do is add the following to your test harness HTML file (usually test/index.html:

  1. include <script src=".../css-polyfills/dist/css-polyfills.js"></script>
  2. include <script src="./src/css-coverage.js"></script> after BlanketJS
  3. include <link rel="stylesheet/coverage" href="path/to/css/file.[less|css]"> to specify which CSS files to cover

See the mocha demo for an example and for the code.

How do I install it?

You can install locally or globally. Installing globally will give you access to css-coverage from the command line.

Locally (on the command line or in conjunction with BlanketJS):

npm install
# Run CSS Coverage on the command line
./bin/css-coverage -s ./test/test.css -h ./test/test.html

Globally (on the command line):

npm install -g .
# Run CSS Coverage
css-coverage -s ./test/test.css -h ./test/test.html

How does this work?
