In this lesson we covered a set of technologies used for testing a Node server. These included:
- Chai - a library for extending the built in Node assertion library
- jsdom - a library for interacting and testing the DOM returned by the server (this functionality is encapsulated in our
- async / await - a pattern for making asynchronous code more readable
- SuperTest - a library for making Node server requests and testing their responses
In the pane to the right there is a test that makes use of all the technologies. Run the test using
npm test and verify it passes. In the next lesson, we’ll use these concepts to further explore testing a Node server.
