Compare the features and requirements of different Node.js testing frameworks, including AVA, Jasmine, Jest, Mocha, and tape.
- [Instructor] We've set up linting tools…to scan our application for suspicious code,…but that doesn't address how our application works.…Let's validate the correctness…of our application with unit testing.…Throughout this chapter, our focus is going to be…on unit testing tools and techniques.…We'll start with a survey of testing frameworks…and their approaches to testing.…Then, we'll compare different assertion libraries…used to determine correctness.…With an informed decision,…we'll install a testing framework…and assertion library into our project.…
Once the tools are in place, we'll write some unit tests…to prevent and detect bugs in our applications.…Finally, we'll test two types of asynchronous code,…which isn't as complicated as it sounds.…Let's get started with a survey…to compare node.js testing frameworks.…Some of the most popular node.js testing frameworks are,…in alphabetical order, AVA, Jasmine,…Jest, Mocha, and Tape.…We'll take a look at each.…
AVA, available from ava.li is a minimalist testing…framework in both its overhead and its approach.…
