The Jasmine Module

The jasmine module is a command line interface and supporting code for running Jasmine specs under Node.

The core of jasmine lives at https://github.com/jasmine/jasmine and is jasmine-core in npm.


This module allows you to run Jasmine specs for your Node.js code. The output will be displayed in your terminal by default.




# Local installation:
npm install --save-dev jasmine

# Global installation
npm install -g jasmine

To run your test suite



Customize spec/support/jasmine.json to enumerate the source and spec files you would like the Jasmine runner to include. You may use dir glob strings. More information on the format of jasmine.json can be found in the documentation

Alternatively, you may specify the path to your jasmine.json by setting an environment variable or an option:

jasmine JASMINE_CONFIG_PATH=relative/path/to/your/jasmine.json
jasmine --config=relative/path/to/your/jasmine.json

Using ES modules

If the name of a spec file or helper file ends in .mjs, Jasmine will load it as an ES module rather than a CommonJS module. This allows the spec file or helper to import other ES modules. No extra configuration is required.

You can also use ES modules with names ending in .js by adding "jsLoader": "import" to jasmine.json. This should work for CommonJS modules as well as ES modules. We expect to make it the default in a future release. Please log an issue if you have code that doesn't load correctly with "jsLoader": "import".

Filtering specs

Execute only those specs which filename match given glob:

jasmine "spec/**/critical/*Spec.js"

Or a single file:

jasmine spec/currentSpec.js

Or execute only those specs which name matches a particular regex:

jasmine --filter "adapter21*"

(where the name of a spec is the first parameter passed to describe())
