I’ve released some smaller WebThings.
After I had initially started with the Node.js express server, I switched to the NPM package
webthing after reading this great article.
There are many more ideas for new Things I wish to program. However, the process needs to become scalable. My biggest time sink is testing. That is why I wish to automate it.
I am looking for both unit tests of my functions that gather the values for properties, as well as some black-box tests which ensure that the Thing can be instantiated and does not fail right away (e.g. read and change some property values). For this I am most likely going to use Jest.
Are there already examples or even a framework for testing a (self-written) WebThing?
I think this would make an awesome blog article and improve the quality of existing and new WebThings.
