The following check list shows how to write JavaScript Jasmine Unit Tests where the tests are asynchronously loaded from AMD modules with RequireJS.

  1. Download the Jasmine source files and extract the lib directory into an empty folder.

  2. Download RequireJS and copy the require.js file into the lib directory.

  3. In the lib/jasmine/boot.js file, remove the env.execute(); call from the window.onload callback.

  4. Create a SpecRunner.html file in the directory root with the HTML content shown below. As you can see, the embedded script loads the defined Unit Test modules and manually calls the previously removed execute() method:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Jasmine Spec Runner</title>

    <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/png" href="lib/jasmine/jasmine_favicon.png">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="lib/jasmine/jasmine.css">

    <script src="lib/jasmine/jasmine.js"></script>
    <script src="lib/jasmine/jasmine-html.js"></script>
    <script src="lib/jasmine/boot.js"></script>

    <script src="lib/require.js"></script>
    <script>
        var testModules = ["tests/sample"]; // TODO: List AMD modules which contain Unit Tests

        require.config({
            baseUrl: "."
        });

        require(testModules, function () {
            jasmine.getEnv().execute();
        });
    </script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>
  1. Define Unit Test modules in the testModules variable.

  2. Run your Unit Tests by navigating to the SpecRunner.html HTML page.

You can find a sample project with this setup on GitHub.
