tape-run

A tape test runner that runs your tests in a (headless) browser and returns 0/1 as exit code, so you can use it as your npm test script.

Usage

First write a test utilizing tape and save it to test/test.js:

var test = require('tape');

test('a test', function (t) {
  t.ok(true);
  t.end();
});

Then run this command using tape-run and browserify and watch the magic happen as the TAP results stream in from a browser:

$ browserify test/*.js | tape-run
TAP version 13
# one
ok 1 true

1..1
# tests 1
# pass  1

# ok

$ echo $?
0

API

You can use tape-run from JavaScript too:

var run = require('tape-run');
var browserify = require('browserify');

browserify(__dirname + '/test/test.js')
  .bundle()
  .pipe(run())
  .on('results', console.log)
  .pipe(process.stdout);

And run it:

$ node example/api.js
TAP version 13
# one
ok 1 true

1..1
# tests 1
# pass  1

# ok
{ ok: true,
  asserts: [ { ok: true, number: 1, name: 'true' } ],
  pass: [ { ok: true, number: 1, name: 'true' } ],
  fail: [],
  errors: [],
  plan: { start: 1, end: 1 } }

run([opts])

opts can be:

  • wait (Number) [Default: 1000]: Make tap-finished wait longer for results. Increase this value if tests finish without all tests being run.
  • port (Number): If you specify a port it will wait for you to open a browser on http://localhost:<port> and tests will be run there.
  • browser (String): Browser to use. Defaults to phantom. Available if installed:
    • chrome
    • firefox
    • ie
    • phantom
    • safari

The CLI takes the same arguments:

$ tape-run --help
Pipe a browserify stream into this.
browserify [opts] [files] | tape-run [opts]

Options:
  --wait, -w     Timeout for tap-finished
  --port, -p     Wait to be opened by a browser on that port
  --browser, -b  Browser to use. Available if installed: chrome, firefox, ie, phantom, safari  [default: "phantom"]
  --help, -h     Print usage instructions

Installation

With npm do

$ npm install tape-run -g # for cli
$ npm install tape-run    # for api
