grunt-casperjs

With this grunt.js task you can run tests with CasperJS.

Getting Started

First Install CasperJS.

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-casperjs --save-dev

One the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-casperjs');

The "casperjs" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named casperjs to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  casperjs: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
    }
  }
})

Usage Examples

Default Options

grunt.initConfig({
  casperjs: {
    options: {
      async: {
        parallel: false
      }
    },
    files: ['tests/casperjs/**/*.js']
  },
})

Async Parallel

By default, tests are run in series. If your tests are independent, you can run them in parallel.

casperjs: {
  options: {
    async: {
      parallel: true
    }
  },
  files: ['tests/casperjs/**/*.js']
}

CasperJS Options

CasperJS options (including user defined ones) can be passed in using 'casperjsOptions' in the options object

casperjs: {
  options: {
    casperjsOptions: ['--foo=bar', '--no-colors']
  },
  files: ['tests/casperjs/**/*.js']
}

Install script and CasperJS version

The install.js script is responsible for searching for existing CasperJS installations in the path. If found, as of grunt-casperjs v1.2.0, that version of CasperJS will be used. If not found, a stable version of CasperJS will be installed (under review).

grunt-casperjs was tested with the currently stable version of CasperJS, 1.1.x

If you would like to use a different version of casperjs, install it yourself globally before installing grunt-casperjs. It will use that one.

Contributing

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
