Automated jQuery tests with QUnit

Installation

(sudo) gem install zfben_hanoi

Crash Course

zfben_hanoi         # prepare the target directory
rake test:js        # run the tests

How To Use

Prepare the target directory, you can use one of the following options:

hanoi
hanoi .
hanoi /path/to/project

You need a valid Rake installation to run your tests:

rake test:js

You can specify to run the test against one or more browsers:

rake test:js BROWSERS=firefox,chromium

You can specify to run only certain tests:

rake test:js TESTS=path/to/first_test.js,path/to/second_test.js

You can combine both BROWSERS and TESTS configurations.

Structure

The zfben_hanoi executable will create the following structure:

Rakefile
test/
  javascript/
    assets/
      jquery.js
      testrunner.js
      testsuite.css
    example_test.js
    fixtures/
      example_fixtures.html
    templates/
      test_case.erb
  • Rakefile creates a fresh Rake file, you have to edit it according to your setup
  • test Hanoi creates it if missing, otherwise will choose between existing test or spec paths
  • javascript is the root directory of your tests
  • assets contains the jQuery and QUnit source file and a css. Place your assets in this directory, it's mapped as root path /.
  • example_test.js is a sample of a real test case.
  • templates contains the template file for your tests. You shouldn't edit it, if you don't know the risk.
  • fixtures contains all the HTML fixtures, each file will be injected into the proper case.

By convention, your test/javascript folder should reflect the structure of your source directory, appending the _test.js suffix to each test case and the _fixtures.html to each fixture file.

Example:

src/
  javascript/
    directory_a/
      directory_b/
        file_3.js
      file_2.js
    file_1.js
test/
  javascript/
    directory_a/
      directory_b/
        file_3_test.js
      file_2_test.js
    file_1_test.js
    fixtures/
      directory_a/
        directory_b/
          file_3_fixtures.html
      file_1_fixtures.html

You have probably noticed that file_2_fixtures.html is missing, this because fixtures are optional.
