After some Spectron experience there tends to be some things that can get repetitive when creating Spectron tests. I figured creating a tool to do just that would be handy to have. So I created the spectron-cli npm package.
Granted, this command line tool doesn’t do all that much. Currently, it only has two commands to it.
The “init” command will create an
e2e directory, if it doesn’t already exist in the current directory it’s run in. It will also create two files in that directory for you – a
test.spec.js file and a
test.page.js file. These files will include templates to help you get started writing your Spectron tests.
The “add” command will just create a spec file and a page file with the name of your choosing inside the
So feel free to install the tool with
npm install spectron-cli and see how it works for you (or just find ways to break it). It is open source so feel free to submit and enhancements or fixes or just create an issue.
I hope this tool serves to help make your Spectron testing much easier.
