grunt-simple-mocha

A simple wrapper for running tests with Mocha. It's pretty much a cleaned up and plugin-ized version of this helpful Gist by johnkpaul.

If you're looking to run client-side specs with PhantomJS, you might be interested in grunt-mocha.

Updating from 0.2.x to 0.3.x

This task now depends on grunt 0.4.x. Please see the grunt 0.3 to 0.4 migration guide for more details.

Installation

  1. Install this grunt plugin next to your project's Gruntfile.js with:

    npm install grunt-simple-mocha --save-dev
    
  2. Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-simple-mocha');
    

Usage

In your grunt.js:

grunt.initConfig({
  simplemocha: {
    options: {
      globals: ['should'],
      timeout: 3000,
      ignoreLeaks: false,
      grep: '*-test',
      ui: 'bdd',
      reporter: 'tap'
    },

    all: { src: 'test/**/*.js' }
  }
});

// For this to work, you need to have run `npm install grunt-simple-mocha`
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-simple-mocha');

// Add a default task. This is optional, of course :)
grunt.registerTask('default', 'simplemocha');

Now, you can just run grunt simplemocha in your shell to run the tests. That's it!

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.
