Testing AngularJS Cookbook
Testing AngularJS Cookbook
Testing Best Practices for AngularJS Developers
About the Book
The Testing AngularJS Cookbook makes testing AngularJS applications as simple as looking up a recipe. It has been designed to get newcomers to the AngularJS tool setup to speed on testing their applications. Whereas experienced developers already familiar with concepts such as Test Driven Development (TDD), can find practical testing patterns they can use to increase unit test writing productivity and maintainability. Note that the recipes in this book do not cover AngularJS 2.0, as the API will most likely change between now and when it becomes available.
The number of websites using AngularJS is growing rapidly. There is no doubt that AngularJS is a rising star in the front-end web development community. The toolset provides a solid foundation for building ambitious web applications that are maintainable and scale. Over 100,000 websites use AngularJS today, and every single one has people tasked with making sure it functions correctly. This book gives designers, developers, and testers instant recipes that empower building robust applications they can fearlessly refactor.
Who This Book Is For
This book assumes a basic understanding of the AngularJS toolset and some familiarity with the Jasmine and Protractor testing frameworks. If you are unaccustomed to working with these tools, have no fear. The first chapter in this book provides a high-level overview of all that AngularJS has to offer, and the second chapter covers the available testing frameworks.
Pedagogy of This Book
The first chapter covers a high-level overview of AngularJS. Chapter two reviews the available testing frameworks. All test examples are written in Jasmine as it is currently the most prevalent test framework used with AngularJS. After these introduction chapters, I dig right into unit testing the components of your AngularJS application, and finally cover end-to-end testing in the final chapter of this book. Each of the testing chapters is self-contained and do not build on the previous chapter. The recipes within them are listed alphabetically to help you find the solution you are looking for as quickly as possible.
