Building good and comprehensive tests for your JavaScript applications helps enable stable and robust applications. Good tests also serve as valuable documentation for what your applications are actually supposed to be doing. In this course, Testing JavaScript for Node.js with Mocha, you'll dive deep into Mocha, one of the most popular and robust testing frameworks for JavaScript. First, you'll start by learning the ins and outs of testing with Mocha. Next, you'll explore how to implement a BDD style of assertion language with Chai. Finally, you'll cover the right way to mock objects and functions with Sinon, and you'll develop an understanding of how to track your code coverage with Istanbul. By the end of this course, you'll be able to build a robust test suite against your node.js applications.
