Unit testing JavaScript used to be painfully tedious. It required that you, the developer, set up HTML scaffolding to hold the code to be tested and the unit test framework. Once the test page was loaded, your life was a long series of F5 presses, as you modified code and press F5 to re-execute the test. Blah. JsTestDriver is a JavaScript unit testing tool from Google. The project’s stated goal: to make JavaScript unit test development as seamless as and easy as Java unit tests. Test driven development in JavaScript can be tricky to setup in Visual Studio, I will show you how to do it. Plus, I will show how to do it using JetBrains’ WebStorm 4.0, without removing the project from VS 2010.
