Running tests on Testling CI

testling-ci is a hosted service that runs your test suite in many different browsers every time you push to GitHub. It can run any test suite so long as it writes TAP to the browser console. jstest detects when it’s running on testling-ci and enables the TAP reporter for you.

All you need to do is add some config to your package.json that says which scripts to load and which browsers to run tests in. You’ll want to load jstest (which we’ll assume you installed through npm), your source and test scripts, and a file that runs the tests by calling JS.Test.autorun().

"testling": {
  "scripts": [
  "browsers": {
    "chrome":   [25],
    "iexplore": [6, 7, 8, 9, 10],
    "firefox":  [3.6, 19],
    "opera":    [10.5, 11.6, 12.0],
    "safari":   [5.1, 6.0]

If the tests don’t seem to be emitting TAP output, add the following to runner.js to enable the right reporter:

JS.Test.autorun(function(runner) {
  runner.addReporter(new JS.Test.Reporters.TAP())
