Jasmine Javascript testing integration for Django.

Project description

django-jasmine integrates the Jasmine Javascript testing framework with Django. Jasmine is a behavior-driven development framework for testing your JavaScript code. It does not depend on any other JavaScript frameworks. It does not require a DOM. And it has a clean, obvious syntax so that you can easily write tests.

django-jasmine also integrates the jasmine-jquery plugin, that provides a set of custom matchers for jQuery framework and an API for handling HTML fixtures in your specs.


  1. pip install django-jasmine

  2. Add ‘django_jasmine’ to your settings.INSTALLED_APPS.

  3. Add settings.JASMINE_TEST_DIRECTORY, containing the path to your javascript jasmine test files. Files.json should be in this directory and all test files should be in os.path.join(settings.JASMINE_TEST_DIRECTORY, ‘spec’) *

  4. Makes sure you have properly defined a STATIC_URL.

  5. Add all Javascript files (including jQuery, and any other libraries) to files.json

  6. Add a urlconf to include(‘django_jasmine.urls’).

  7. Visit the URL you’ve included in your urlconf to display Jasmine test results.

See the example directory for more information.


If you wish to modify the jasmine index template for any reason (e.g. add a new jasmine reporter), you can create a jasmine/index.html template as follow:

{% extends "jasmine/base.html" %}

{% block jasmine_extra %}
    {# If you want to extend the default jasmineEnv config #}
{% endblock %}

{% block jasmine %}
    {# If you wish to rewrite the whole html runner script #}
{% endblock %}

Read templates/jasmine/base.html for the default config

Several versions of jasmine will be kept for retro-compatibility. You can override jasmine/base.html, and call for a specific version of jasmine (default to jasmine-latest, a symlink to the latest version)


jasmine-jquery allowing to add fixtures, you can set them in os.path.join(settings.JASMINE_TEST_DIRECTORY, ‘fixtures’). Then in your spec:

jasmine.getFixtures().fixturesPath = "/jasmine/fixtures/";


If you encounter some errors that isn’t obvious to debug, you can add “django_jasmine” to your loggers.


  1. Write django tests for this app

  2. Add headless testing environments (e.g jasmine-headless-webkit or Zombie.js)

  3. Add Growl/notifyd notifications

  4. Rewrite the view to be class-based

  5. Add more settings for more flexibility


The Pypi django-jasmine version 0.3.1 includes:

  • jasmine 1.1.0.rc1

  • jasmine-jquery 1.3.1

since django-jasmine==0.3.1, it’ll also insure that Django>=1.3 is installed, otherwise will install it as a dependency
