Chai Sorted

Chai JS Plugin for testing if an array has sorted values (strings, numbers, booleans). Very helpful when writing tests for features that implement Array.prototype.sort()

Installation

Node.js

Install via npm:

npm install chai-sorted

Use this plugin just like other Chai plugins:

var chai = require("chai"),
    expect = chai.expect; // preference and tested with expect

chai.use(require("chai-sorted"));

In the browser

There is no planned support for keeping a browser build in this respository, so please consider Webpack or similar tool.

If you do want Browser installation support, please open an issue.

API Usage

.sorted method

Test for ascending sort order of array

expect(["a","b"]).to.be.sorted()

Test for descending sort order of array

expect(["b","apples"]).to.be.sorted(false)

.sortedBy method

Allows for sorting by an attribute

Test for ascending sort order of array by name attribute

expect([{id:2,name:"apple"},{id:3,name:"bat"}]).to.be.sortedBy("name")

Test for descending sort order of array by name attribute

expect([{id:2,name:"bat"},{id:3,name:"apples"}]).to.be.sortedBy("name",true)

.ascendingBy method

Alternate of sortedBy but more explicit

Test for ascending sort order of array by name attribute

expect([{id:2,name:"apple"},{id:3,name:"bat"}]).to.be.ascendingBy("name")

.descendingBy method

Alternate of sortedBy but does not require passing true as a second parameter to sortedBy. It is the same as doing sortBy("name",true)

Test for descending sort order of array by name attribute

expect([{id:2,name:"bat"},{id:3,name:"apples"}]).to.be.descendingBy("name")

ascending property

Test for ascending sort order of array using a property syntax

expect(["a","b"]).to.be.ascending

descending property

Test for descending sort order of array using a property syntax

expect(["b","apples"]).to.be.descending
