Using wasm-bindgen-test

Add wasm-bindgen-test to Your Cargo.toml's [dev-dependencies]

wasm-bindgen-test = "0.3.0"

Note that the 0.3.0 track of wasm-bindgen-test supports Rust 1.39.0+, which is currently the nightly channel (as of 2019-09-05). If you want support for older compilers use the 0.2.* track of wasm-bindgen-test.

Write Some Tests

Create a $MY_CRATE/tests/ file:

fn main() {
use wasm_bindgen_test::*;

fn pass() {
    assert_eq!(1, 1);

fn fail() {
    assert_eq!(1, 2);

Writing tests is the same as normal Rust #[test]s, except we are using the #[wasm_bindgen_test] attribute.

One other difference is that the tests must be in the root of the crate, or within a pub mod. Putting them inside a private module will not work.

Execute Your Tests

Run the tests with wasm-pack test. By default, the tests are generated to target Node.js, but you can configure tests to run inside headless browsers as well.

$ wasm-pack test --node
    Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 0.11s

That's it!

Appendix: Using wasm-bindgen-test without wasm-pack

⚠️ The recommended way to use wasm-bindgen-test is with wasm-pack, since it will handle installing the test runner, installing a WebDriver client for your browser, and informing cargo how to use the custom test runner. However, you can also manage those tasks yourself, if you wish.

In addition to the steps above, you must also do the following.

Install the Test Runner

The test runner comes along with the main wasm-bindgen CLI tool. Make sure to replace "X.Y.Z" with the same version of wasm-bindgen that you already have in Cargo.toml!

cargo install wasm-bindgen-cli --vers "X.Y.Z"

Configure .cargo/config to use the Test Runner

Add this to $MY_CRATE/.cargo/config:

runner = 'wasm-bindgen-test-runner'

Run the Tests

Run the tests by passing --target wasm32-unknown-unknown to cargo test:

cargo test --target wasm32-unknown-unknown
