array

Array asserter.

Assert that the type of actual value is an array (using .isArray() assertion). The array() asserter provides adapted assertions for works on an array.

See also the spec of "array" asserter for more examples.

Example

test.array(actual);

Methods

is(expected)


Assert actual value equality by content and if possible, recursively.

Also handles circular and self-referential objects.

For most parts it asserts strict equality (===), but:

  • Boolean objects are compared to boolean literals.
  • Number objects are compared to number literals.
  • String objects are compared to string literals.
  • RegExp objects are compared by their pattern and flags.
  • Date objects are compared by their value.
  • Array objects are compared recursively.
  • NaNs are considered equivalent.
  • Instances of the same class with a valueOf function are compared by its output.
  • Plain objects and instances of the same class are compared recursively.

Does not coerce types so mismatching types fail. Inherited enumerable properties are also taken into account.

Parameters
Name Type Description
expected
mixed

Expected value

Returns
Type Description
Object

The current instance

Example
test.array(['foo', [0, 1]])
  .is(['foo', [0, 1]]);

isNot(expected)


Assert actual value to the negative equality by content and if possible, recursively.

Also handles circular and self-referential objects.

For most parts it asserts strict (!==), but:

  • Boolean objects are compared to boolean literals.
  • Number objects are compared to number literals.
  • String objects are compared to string literals.
  • RegExp objects are compared by their pattern and flags.
  • Date objects are compared by their value.
  • Array objects are compared recursively.
  • NaNs are considered equivalent.
  • Instances of the same class with a valueOf function are compared by its output.
  • Plain objects and instances of the same class are compared recursively.

Does not coerce types so mismatching types fail. Inherited enumerable properties are also taken into account.
