Node-Mocha-Star Generator Build Status Analytics

Create a node.js module with Yeoman, including Mocha unit tests, with the assertion library of your choice.


Install the generator by running: npm install -g generator-node-mocha-star.


At the command-line, cd into an empty directory, run this command and follow the prompts.

yo node-mocha-star

Note that this template will generate files in the current directory, so be sure to change to a new directory first if you don't want to overwrite existing files.

The prompts are:

Module Name:
GitHub username:
Author's Name:
Author's Email:
Author's Homepage:
Which Mocha reporter would you like to use?:
Which assertion library would you like to use?:


This generator is a fork of generator-node-mocha (supporting Mocha unit tests instead of NodeUnit) which is in turn a fork of generator-node by the Yeoman team.

The should.js guide was taken from grunt-initconfig
