Acceptance tests

Though we can test client and server code separately with these tests, we can't test the interaction between the two. For this, we need acceptance tests, which, if explained in detail, would go beyond the scope of this chapter.

At the time of this writing, there is no acceptance testing framework that is implemented using Velocity, though there are two you can use.


The clinical:nightwatch package allows you to run an acceptance test in a simple way as follows:

"Hello World" : function (client) {
        .waitForElementVisible("body", 1000)
        .assert.title("Hello World")

Though the installation process is not as straightforward as installing a Meteor package, you need to install and run MongoDB and PhantomJS yourself before you can run the tests.
