CFML unit test runner for AngularJS

I am working my way through the AngularJS tutorials again, this time paying more attention to the testing side of AngularJS.

In the test suites, there is a runner for End 2 End testing, but not the unit test. To run those the tutorial links off to how to install node.js and Karma (formally testacular). This is extremely cool for the Continuous Intergration side of things, but I am not quite there yet.

So I have created myself a unit test runner with CFML. I am only up to step 5, so may add more to this as I work my way through the rest of the tutorial. You will need to download Jasmine. Drop this code in test/unit/runner.cfm

      jasmineEnv.updateInterval = 1000;

      var htmlReporter = new jasmine.HtmlReporter();


      jasmineEnv.specFilter = function(spec) {
        return htmlReporter.specFilter(spec);

      var currentWindowOnload = window.onload;

      window.onload = function() {
        if (currentWindowOnload) {

      function execJasmine() {

Perth CFML Web Developers

I have started a group on 'Group Spaces' : Perth CFML Web Developers

Join fellow CFML (Adobe ColdFusion, Railo & openBD) developers to share ideas about building modern day web applications and development best practices.

I was going to put it on, but that is a paid services now. Google has not from the group on Group Spaces :-( Maybe I should bite the bullet and create a facebook group??
