Testing Ember Apps

A session at EmberCamp 2013

Friday 15th February, 2013

2:40pm to 3:00pm (PST)

This talk explores the state of the art of testing JS MVC apps. I will also talk about some of the challenges we are currently facing, and how we can evolve the testing ecosystem. There will be demos.

1. Full-stack testing with Capybara/Selenium (or WebKit):

  • Why we love it.
  • The architectural reasons for why it's so slow and unreliable.
  • Testing strategies.

2. Client-side unit testing with Mocha+Chai (or QUnit):

  • Setup and practical tips for testing with Ember.

3. Client-side-only "integration" testing:

  • Plain Mocha+Chai.
  • Rails integration with Konacha; watch your Ember app being exercised in an iframe.
  • Approaches to dealing with the missing server side.
