PyCharm 2017.1 Help

Preparing to Use JSTestDriver Test Runner

This feature is supported in the Professional edition only.

On this page:

Configuring the JSTestDriver test runner

You do not need to download the JSTestDriver framework manually. The server and the assertion framework are provided through the JSTestDriver plugin. The plugin is not bundled with PyCharm, but it can be installed from the JetBrains plugin repository as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins.

This plugin does the following:

  • Runs the JSTestDriver server that captures an opened browser to execute tests in.
  • During the test creation, detects the unit testing framework the test code complies with, whereupon suggests the Add <test framework> support intention action, provided that the framework is recognized as a PyCharm JavaScript library and is thus available in the IDE.
