tibet-test(1) -- runs unit/functional tests on your application

SYNOPSIS

tibet test [[--target] <target>] [--suite <suite>] [--cases <casename>] [--ignore-only] [--ignore-skip] [--inherit] [--subtypes] [--tap[=true|false]] [--no-tap] [--profile <pkgcfg>] [--config <cfg>] [--debug] [--verbose] [--selftest] [--context=['app'|'lib'|'all']] [--karma[=true|false]] [--no-karma]

DESCRIPTION

Runs unit, functional, and/or integration tests on your application.

If the --karma flag is true, tibet test checks to see if the karma-tibet testing module and karma have been installed in your project. If so the command delegates to karma start to run your tests.

If karma isn't installed or the --karma flag is false (the default) tests will run in the context of headless Chrome.

In both cases (karma or headless) you can specify a particular test target object or test suite to run as the first argument to the command. If you need to specify both a target and suite use --target and --suite respectively.

You can use a wide variety of targets to scope your tests. For example, APP, APP.hello, and hello: will all resolve and test your entire APP-rooted set of tests, the application's hello-rooted tests, or the hello-namespace. Essentially any "root" object path works like a wildcard specification for all tests rooted at that object.

You can limit testing to a particular case or set of cases by using the --cases parameter. Both --suite and --cases accept either a string or a regular expression in JavaScript syntax such as --cases /foo/i.

Ultimately this command marshals a call to the TIBET client which uses reflection and other metadata to determine the specific tests to run. Those tests are then invoked and the output is passed back to the CLI.

For headless testing output to the terminal is in colorized TAP format by default. Future versions will support additional test output formatters.

OPTIONS

  • target : An optional target, usually a type name, to run tests on. Unlike other test frameworks, TIBET's tests are typically associated with an object such as a type. This lets you quickly test a type by simply specifying it as a target.

  • --target : An alternate way to provide the target, usually a type name to run tests on.

  • --suite : A specific suite name or a /pattern/ to match to filter suite names.

  • --cases : A specific case name or a /pattern/ to match to filter case names.

  • --context : Sets the context of the scan which is run. The default is app which scans only application-level resources, ignoring any potential library resources. Other values are lib and all.

  • --ignore-only: If a test has the 'only' flag set ignore it, run all the tests found.

  • --ignore-skip: If a test has the 'skip' flag set ignore it and run the test anyway.

  • --inherit: Include tests from the target object's inheritance chain in the tests.

  • --subtypes: Include subtypes of a target type when selecting test suites.

  • --tap: Turn on/off TAP output format. Using --no-tap will cause this command to not use TAP formatted output.

  • --profile: A profile in the form of package@config.

  • --config: The name of an individual config to process.

  • --debug : Sets the test harness's logging level to 'debug'.

  • --verbose : Whether or not to log the script that has been generated to invoke the test machinery.

  • --selftest: Whether or not to invoke the test harness's 'self test' profile - i.e. the list of scripts that will test the test harness itself.

  • --karma : Turns on/off the search for a karma binary and karma.conf.js file. Using --no-karma will force TIBET's basic headless test execution. The default value is false.

CONFIGURATION SETTINGS

No TIBET configuration variables are utilized by this command.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

No process environment variables are required by this command.

EXAMPLES

Run default application tests via karma

Assuming you've followed the installation instructions for karma-tibet (https://github.com/TechnicalPursuit/karma-tibet) you can run your karma tests via tibet test:

$ tibet test --karma

30 06 2016 17:32:46.557:INFO [karma]: Karma v1.1.0 server started at http://0.0.0.0:9876/

Run default application tests via Headless Chrome

If you haven't installed karma you can run tests via the tibet test command:

$ tibet test

# Loading TIBET at 2018-08-23T13:32:03.632Z
# TIBET loaded and active in 6736ms
# TIBET starting test run
# 2 suite(s) found.

#
# tibet test APP --suite 'APP'

ok - Has an application type.
# pass: 2 total, 2 pass, 0 fail, 0 error, 0 skip, 0 todo, 0 only.
#
# tibet test APP.d2d.app --suite 'APP.d2d:app'
ok - Is a templated tag.
# pass: 1 total, 1 pass, 0 fail, 0 error, 0 skip, 0 todo, 0 only.
#
# PASS: 3 total, 3 pass, 0 fail, 0 error, 0 skip, 0 todo, 0 only.

# Finished in 2385 ms w/TSH exec time of 93 ms.

NOTE that each test is prefixed with a comment of the form # tibet test .. which allows you to run that specific test suite.

Force default application tests via headless in a karma-enabled project

$ tibet test --no-karma

# Finished in 2385 ms w/TSH exec time of 93 ms.

Run tests on a specific type

$ tibet test --karma APP.hello.app

overriding karma.script with: :test  -target='APP.hello.app'
