Jasmine Sample Code

If you are looking for a way to test your JavaScript code, Jasmine is a great option. It is a behavior-driven development framework that makes testing your code easy and efficient. In order to get started, you will need to have a basic understanding of JavaScript and how it works.


In order to use Jasmine, you will need to download and install it. You can do this by following these steps:

  • Download the Jasmine zip file from the official website.
  • Extract the contents of the zip file to your preferred directory.
  • Include the Jasmine files in your HTML file using script tags.

<script src="path/to/jasmine.js"></script>
<script src="path/to/jasmine-html.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/jasmine.css">

Writing Tests

Once you have installed Jasmine, you can start writing tests for your JavaScript code. The basic syntax for writing a test is as follows:

describe('description of what you are testing', function() {
  it('description of the specific test', function() {
    // code for the test

The describe function is used to group related tests together. The it function is used to define a specific test. Within the it function, you can write code to test your JavaScript code.


Here is an example of using Jasmine to test a simple JavaScript function:

// the function to be tested
function add(a, b) {
  return a + b;

// the test
describe('addition', function() {
  it('should add two numbers together', function() {
    expect(add(2, 3)).toEqual(5);

In this example, we define a function called add that takes two parameters and returns their sum. We then write a test that verifies that the add function works correctly.

There are many other ways to use Jasmine, and this is just a basic introduction. If you want to learn more, check out the official documentation for Jasmine.
