# Test Reporting

Gondola is built on top of Mocha test framework. This means you're free to use any test reporters supported by Mocha.

  • We've tested Mochawesome and encourage its use with Gondola.
  • Allure is another test reporter you can use with Gondola. It's integrated using Gondola's plugin mechanism.
  • Junit Reporter for Mocha Is helpful for users who wish to integrate Gondola with their pipelines(like Jenkins, TFS,etc)
  • Mocha-Multi allows you to Mocha with multiple reporters at the same time.

# Gondola

Gondola's built-in test reporter is still under development. Currently, it provides an overview of what passed or failed and a summary of the test-run for stakeholders. Gondola report Overview

# Using Gondola Reporter

To use the built-in gondola reporter , add gondolareport after the reporter flag in scripts section of package.json. Example:

  "scripts": {
    "test:android": "./node_modules/.bin/gondola -c gondola.android.json run --steps --reporter gondolareport"

# Mochawesome

Mochawesome is a designed to work in conjunction with Mocha Mocha Awesome

# Mochawesome Configuration

In gondola.json add Mochawesome to the list of helpers

 "helpers": {
//removed for brevity,
        "Mochawesome": {

And give mocha it's own section gondola.json

    "mocha": {
        "reporterOptions": {
            "reportDir": "results",
            "inlineAssets": true,
            "timestamp": "isoDateTime",
            "reportFilename": "gondola",
            "autoOpen": true,
            "reportPageTitle": "Gondola Test Result"

In packages.json add "test": "./node_modules/.bin/gondola run --steps --reporter mochawesome" to the scripts sections

"scripts": {
//removed for brevity
        "test": "./node_modules/.bin/gondola run --steps --reporter mochawesome"

You'll need to add Mochawesome to the project by running this from the terminal

npm i mochawesome


if the project has previously been configured for Allure, remove any references to it.

# Mochawesome Usage

After your test has completed, the results will automatically be displayed in your browser.

# Allure

Allure creates reports that are useful to developers, testers and managers.

Allure Overview

Allure Overview

# Allure Configuration

To use Allure as your test reporter, add it to the plugins field in gondola.json

 "plugins": {
//code removed for brevity
      "allure": {},
//code removed for brevity

The scripts section in packages.json should look like this:

 "scripts": {
    "compile": "./node_modules/.bin/tsc",
    "show-report": "./node_modules/.bin/allure serve results",
    "test": "./node_modules/.bin/gondola run --steps --plugins allure"


The default setting for output in gondola.json is ./results. If you've changed this you need to specify it in this line:

"show-report": "./node_modules/.bin/allure serve your-output-folder"

And you'll need to add Allure to project by running this from the terminal

npm i allure-commandline


If the project has previously been configured for Mochawesome, remove any references to it.

# Allure Usage

To see the an Allure report run npm run show-report from the terminal
