Chai Assertions for Nock

Build Status Coverage Status npm version

Nock Chai extends Chai with a language for asserting facts about Nock.

Instead of manually wiring up your expectations to intercepting a nocked request:

const nockedRequest = nock('http://some-url');

nockedRequest.on('request', function(req, interceptor, body) {
  expect(body).to.deep.equal({ hello: 'world' });
});

you can write code that expresses what you really mean:

return expect(nock('http://some-url')).to.have.been.requestedWith({
  hello: 'world'
});

Installation

npm install chai-nock

Then add to your test setup:

const chai = require('chai');
const chaiNock = require('chai-nock');

chai.use(chaiNock);

Assertions

requested

Asserts that a request has been made to the nock.

it('requested', () => {
  const requestNock = nock('http://bbc.co.uk')
    .get('/')
    .reply(200);

  request({
    uri: 'http://bbc.co.uk',
  });

  return expect(requestNock).to.have.been.requested;
});

requestedWith(body)

Asserts that a request has been made to the nock with a body that exactly matches the object provided.

it('requestedWith', () => {
  const requestNock = nock('http://bbc.co.uk')
    .get('/')
    .reply(200);

  request({
    json: true,
    uri: 'http://bbc.co.uk',
    body: {
      hello: 'world'
    }
  });

  return expect(requestNock).to.have.been.requestedWith({ hello: 'world' });
});

requestedWithHeaders(headers)

Asserts that a request has been made to the nock with headers that exactly match the object provided.

it('requestedWithHeaders', () => {
  const requestNock = nock('http://bbc.co.uk')
    .get('/')
    .reply(200);

  request({
    json: true,
    uri: 'http://bbc.co.uk',
    headers: {
      myHeader: 'myHeaderValue'
    }
  });

  return expect(requestNock).to.have.been.requestedWithHeaders({
    host: 'bbc.co.uk',
    accept: 'application/json',
    myHeader: 'myHeaderValue'
  });
});

requestedWithHeadersMatch(partialHeaders)

Asserts that a request has been made to the nock with headers that contain the key/value pairs in the object provided.

it('requestedWithHeadersMatch', () => {
  const requestNock = nock('http://bbc.co.uk')
    .get('/')
    .reply(200);

  request({
    json: true,
    uri: 'http://bbc.co.uk',
    headers: {
      myHeader: 'myHeaderValue',
      otherHeader: 'otherHeaderValue'
    }
  });

  return expect(requestNock).to.have.been.requestedWithHeadersMatch({
    myHeader: 'myHeaderValue'
  });
});

    .get('/')
    .reply(200);
