This talk explores the state of the art of testing JS MVC apps. I will also talk about some of the challenges we are currently facing, and how we can evolve the testing ecosystem. There will be demos.

  1. Full-stack testing with Capybara/Selenium (or WebKit): Why we love it. The architectural reasons for why it's so slow and unreliable. Testing strategies.

  2. Client-side unit testing with Mocha+Chai (or QUnit): Setup and practical tips for testing with Ember.

  3. Client-side-only "integration" testing: Plain Mocha+Chai. Rails integration with Konacha; watch your Ember app being exercised in an iframe. Approaches to dealing with the missing server side.
