Heads Up! You're viewing the docs for v0.6, an old version of Karma. v2.0 is the newest.

Installation

Testacular runs on Node.js and is available as a node module via NPM.

Requirements

First, you need to install Node.js. There are installers for both Mac and Windows. On Linux, we recommend using NVM.

Global Installation

This is the recommended way. It will install Testacular into your global node_modules directory and create a symlink to its binary.

$ npm install -g testacular

# Start Testacular
$ testacular start

Local Installation

A local installation will install Testacular into your current directory's node_modules. That allows you to have different versions for different projects.

$ npm install testacular

# Start Testacular
$ ./node_modules/.bin/testacular start
