About This Book
Improve your Karma and Protractor expertise by setting up an Angular test suite
A wide range of testing techniques for professional Angular applications accompanied by practical examples
Who This Book Is For
What You Will Learn
Get an overview of Karma and create test suites for an Angular application
Install and configure Protractor for Angular and explore a few important Protractor APIs
Understand automated testing and implement headless automated tests with Karma
Implement testing techniques with mocks, broadcast events, and asynchronous behavior
Integrate REST-based services and APIs into an application to extract data
Automate Karma unit tests with Travis CI
This is a complete guide that shows you testing techniques with Karma that will help you perform unit testing and end-to-end testing with Protractor. It will show you how to optimize your Angular development process using TDD techniques and ensure your final project is free of bugs. All examples in this book are based on Angular v2 and are compatible with Angular v4.
Building on the initial foundational aspects, we move on to testing for multiple classes, partial views, location references, CSS, and the HTML element. In addition, we will explore how to use a headless browser with Karma. We will also configure a Karma file to automate the testing and tackle elements of Angular (components, services, classes, and broadcasting) using TDD.
Finally, you will find out how to pull data using an external API, set up and configure Protractor to use a standalone Selenium server, and set up Travis CI and Karma to test your application.
