Mocha Executor

Allows to run javascript tests based on Mocha.

Taurus can loop test suite execution in a loop until desired number of iterations will complete or hold-for time will be exceeded.

Taurus currently uses Mocha v4 as default version. ##Usage

execution:
- executor: mocha
  scenario:
    script: tests/  # folder with your tests or path to one test script

Basic example of Mocha test with Selenium webdriver:

const assert = require('assert'),
    webdriver = require('selenium-webdriver');
let driver;
 
describe('Blazedemo verification', function() {
    this.timeout(30000);
 
    before(async () => {
        driver = new webdriver.Builder().
            withCapabilities(webdriver.Capabilities.firefox()).
            build();
        await driver.get('http://blazedemo.com/');
    });
 
    after(function () {
        driver.quit();
    });
});
 
  • *Note**: When using Selenium Webdriver api, be aware than it uses async behavior with it's commands. For example, command driver.get will return a promise, which will be resolved only when webdriver fully loads page.

Supported file types:

Test scenario may be presented as single javascript file or as a folder.

You can also find an example of complete Mocha-based test suite and Taurus config to run it with in examples/selenium/mocha folder of Taurus's repo.

Settings

By default, Taurus will install Mocha and its dependencies with npm into ~/.bzt/selenium-taurus/mocha/ directory. You can customize it with tools-dir module setting.

modules:
  mocha:
    tools-dir: my-dir
