Server-Side Tests: Enabling Jasmine Test Results in Dirigible Console

In my previous blog I introduced Jasmin as a testing framework for server-side JavaScript. Here, I will explore how to add the server console as another test results output channel. It is rudimentary, yet handy channel. Lucky for you it comes right out-of-the-box with the GitHub dirigiblelabs Jasmine project. To use it, you need to require the console reporter library and integrate it in Jasmine’s environment.

//get the console reporter library
var console_reporter = require("jasmine/reporters/console_reporter");

var jasmine = j.core(j);
var env = jasmine.getEnv();

//add the reporter to Jasmine env 
env.addReporter(console_reporter.jasmine_console_reporter);

$$j.describe("A suite is just a function", function() {
    
	$$j.it("and has a positive case", function() {
    	$$j.expect(false).toBe(true);
    });
    
    $$j.it("and can have a negative case", function() {
    	$$j.expect(false).not.toBe(true);
    });   
    
});

With this setup, selecting a Jasmine test suite .js script file in the user workspace will yield results similar to the following when the test suite is done:

And that’s all folks.
