Retest

Request driven library for testing node.js HTTP servers via request.

Installation

npm install retest --save-dev

Usage

You may pass a http.Server, function or string to retest() - if the server is not listening for connections it will be bound to an ephemeral port so there is no need to keep track of ports.

var retest  = require('retest');
var express = require('express');

var app = express();

app.get('/', function (req, res) {
  res.send('hello');
});

retest(app).get('/user', function (err, res) {
  if (err) throw err;
});

A retest instance accepts the same arguments as request, including the options object.

Callbacks

The callback function is called with two arguments, the error and response. The response body will be automatically parsed when possible based on the content type (current application/json and application/x-www-form-urlencoded).

Agent

Create an instance that will reuse cookies between requests by calling retest.agent(app).
