Sanitize your AngularJS Code with Jasmine and Karma

Submitted Jun 24, 2014

An AngularJS Developer will ensure following items after attending this session:

• Produce Highly stable solution

• Easily Integrate different components in a large complex system

• Minimizing New and regression defects

• Reduction in test cycle at each phrase

• Good reference point for the system documentation

Jasmine, BBD (Behavior Driven Development) will help AngularJS developers to achieve the above goals.


AngularJS is a client-side MV* framework for creating simple to complex applications. It includes features like two way data binding, model-view-whatever, dependency injection, routing, and promises among others.

To ensure that our application is bug free, extensible and maintainable, we need to take following actions:

• Write application code first.

• Test cases must be small and tests one thing. Test a small unit of code instead of the entire application

• Run test cases against class or method specific for that test case

• If test fails, fix the defects and test again

With Jasmine, BDD, you can write specifications that are small and easy to read.

Further, we will automate our test cases using Karma, the JavaScript test runner and will configure grunt to do all these tasks to make our code production ready.
