tapr

Tapper (tapr) is a node.js tap test runner which allows stdout and stderr mixed in with the tap output and also presents assert output in a more abbreviated fashion. Tapper also optionally adds color to the output. Core based on Isaac Z Schlueter original tap runner. Because of Isaac's modular design Tapr/Tapper customizes the runner but uses all the original tap components.

Tapper

Tapper (aka tapr) is a node.js tap runner which allows stdout and stderr mixed in with the tap output. Also tapper adds color to the output. Core based on Isaac Z Schlueter original tap runner.

Goals

  • More concise formatting of tap output (easier to find what you care about)
  • Improve ability to write to stdout and stderr from tests or code
  • stdout/stderr is muted for successful tests, but displayed for files with failing tests
  • Add optional colorized output

Installing

  npm install tapr  # install locally
  # OR
  npm install -g tapr  # install globally

OR

Add to your project package.json

  "devDependencies": {
    "tapr" : "~0.1.0"
    }

Then npm install your package with dev dependencies from the project directory

  npm install

OR

Pull from github - http://github.com/jeffbski/tapper

Usage

  node_modules/.bin/tapr.js fileOrDir   # if installed locally
  #OR
  tapr fileOrDir  # if installed globally
  #
  tapr                                     # display usage
  tapr --help                         # display usage
  tapr --version                    # display version
  tapr --no-color fileOrDir   # run without color output

Status

  • v0.1.0 - 2011-11-28 - tapr - change bin/tapper to bin/tapr for convenient typing. tapr is also short for tap runner
  • v0.0.6 - 2011-11-22 - Tapper is based on the original tap code with minor changes. The runner will evolve with features as time permits but appears to be fully functional.
