JavaScript JavaScript Unit Testing Behavior Driven Development with Mocha & Chai A Testing Test!

Write a test spec that proves the clone function in clone.js returns an object where all properties match.


var expect = require('chai').expect

describe('clone', function () {
    var clone = require('./clone.js')
    it('some description string', function () {

        // YOUR CODE HERE

function clone (objectForCloning) {
    return Object.assign({}, objectForCloning)

module.exports = clone

You've got the basic idea, but there's a few implementation issues:

  • the parentheses are unbalanced (two opens but only one close)
  • "objectForCloning" is undefined in clone_spec.js (it's a parameter in clone.js)
  • you'll need to create an appropriate object to test the clone method with
  • the argument to "match" is missing
  • "match" is for testing strings using regular expressions, not for testing objects
  • check the documentation for the proper method, remember you want to confirm all properties
