Mocha and subdirectories

So, did you run mocha and your tests under subdirectories of test/ weren’t executed?

Don’t worry, you aren’t alone.

It’s an expected behaviour of mocha.

Best practices test/* By default mocha(1) will use the pattern ./test/*.js, so it’s usually a good place to put your tests.

The recommended approach is to use a Makefile (create one if you don’t have it) and add your own test task.

# Makefile
TESTS = $(shell find test -name "*test.js")

  ./node_modules/.bin/mocha $(TESTS) --reporter list

.PHONY: test

Then make test.
