Mocha is a feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on Node.js and in the browser, making asynchronous testing simple and fun. Mocha tests run serially, allowing for flexible and accurate reporting, while mapping uncaught exceptions to the correct test cases.

Some of the features of mocha are as follow:

  • simple async support, including promises.
    async test timeout support.
    before, after, before each, after each hooks (very useful to clean the environment where each test!).
    test coverage reporting.
