mockti

build status

mockti is a mocking framework for Titanium. It loads up a jsca description of the Titanium API and creates a Titanium object with all of the proper objects and methods for testing code. Every proxy is an emitter (as in Ti itself). Methods also emit an event function::name when invoked.

This is a continuation of my exploration of testing in Titanium. It's a Zombie.js style approach to the problem; rather than running inside of the emulators and simulating events, we instead just simulate the environment in pure javascript. This may prove useful for testing certain types of user interfaces and code. I've found it helpful for mocking requests for testing my network code.

Alternatively, one could use some test runner with this. This is the PhantomJS style approach.

How to use it

Install it like this

$ npm i mockti

Then, use it like this

var mockti = require('mockti');

// make it global 
Ti = mockti();

var xhr = Titanium.Network.createHTTPClient();
var view = Ti.UI.createView();

The mockti() function takes as an argument the path to an api.jsca file. These are included with every sdk build. If you don't pass a path, it'll use the bundled api.jsca, which currently is from 3.1.0 GA.

You'll probably want to require() some of the code in your Resources folder. Currently I have my project setup with a test folder which has a couple tests; these require code out of Resources after requiring mockti. Then, I attempt requests, make assertions, etc.

You can also make http requests, which will go through the npm request module. Check out nock if you'd like to mock these requests.

Type Assertions

Simple types are asserted. For example, functions that accept a number or string will have their argument's type asserted.
