Node TAP 18.4.0

tap Mocha Globals Plugin (optional)

@tapjs/mocha-globals

An optional plugin adding Mocha-like BDD and TDD interfaces to the global environment when tap is loaded.

To install it, run:

tap plugin add @tapjs/mocha-globals

API#

The goal of this plugin is not to fully implement the Mocha interface with perfect fidelity, but rather to facilitate porting tests to use tap from other test framework dialects, and to provide this interface for those who prefer this style.

TDD/BDD methods provided:

Other useful things that are helpful with these:

tt() => Test#

Return the tap Test object that corresponds to the current suite or test that the mocha BDD/TDD methods are running.

currentSuite() => Test#

The Test corresponding to the current describe() block, or undefined outside of a suite.

currentTest() => Test#

The Test corresponding to the current it() block, or undefined outside of a test.

mounted() => Test#

The Test corresponding to the "root" where all suites branch off from.

When the plugin is active, this is always the TAP root test object.

globalize()#

Set all the BDD/TDD methods in the global space.

Config#

If the --mocha-globals flag is set (true by default) then these methods will be injected into the global space.

If disabled with --no-mocha-globals on the command line or mocha-globals: false in a .taprc, then you can import them from @tapjs/mocha-globals as named exports.
