Getting started with Konacha Jump to Story

Jo Liss dropped us a line to let us know about Konacha, a library he’s been working on with its maintainer John Firebaugh to write JavaScript tests in your Rails app with the Mocha JavaScript test framework and the Chai assertion library. Konacha recently hit version 1.0, and because it’s tied into rails and not framework agnostic, it’s takes full advantage of Rails asset pipeline and engines. While you should still use something like Capybara & Selenium for integration testing, some of the MVC heavy javascript frameworks coming out these days require more thorough testing, which Konacha will definitely help you with.
