#Testing via Browserstack

Configuration for setting up browserstack testing with karma.

To make sure your project is production-ready, we recommend running tests in all the browsers you want to support.

If you do not have access to all browsers, we recommend using a service like Browserstack to make sure your project works as intended. Browserstack offers free accounts for open source projects.

The testing-karma-bs configuration helps setting up karma with Browserstack. To set it up you need to use the configuration in your project, and follow the instructions below to set up a user account

#Setup

With our project scaffolding you can set up a pre-configured project, or you can upgrade an existing project by choosing Upgrade -> Testing:

npm init @open-wc

#Manual

Install:

npm i -D @open-wc/testing-karma-bs deepmerge

Add a karma.conf.bs.js file:

const merge = require('deepmerge');
const { bsSettings } = require('@open-wc/testing-karma-bs');
const createBaseConfig = require('./karma.conf.js');

module.exports = config => {
  config.set(
    merge.all([
      bsSettings(config),
      createBaseConfig(config),
      {
        browserStack: {
          project: 'your-name',
        },
      },
    ]),
  );

  return config;
};

Add a script to your package.json:

{
  "scripts": {
    "test:bs": "karma start karma.conf.bs.js --coverage"
  }
}

#Setup user + key

# for one-time use only (on mac)
export BROWSER_STACK_USERNAME=xxx
export BROWSER_STACK_ACCESS_KEY=xxx

# or for one-time use only (on windows)
set BROWSER_STACK_USERNAME=xxx
set BROWSER_STACK_ACCESS_KEY=xxx

# or add them to your .bashrc
echo "export BROWSER_STACK_USERNAME=xxx" >> ~/.bashrc
echo "export BROWSER_STACK_ACCESS_KEY=xxx" >> ~/.bashrc

# to verify, run:
echo "User: $BROWSER_STACK_USERNAME"
echo "Key: $BROWSER_STACK_ACCESS_KEY"

#Usage

npm run test:bs
