jShoulda is a wrapper for JsUnitTest which allows the developer to write Shoulda-like tests.

Please visit http://jshoulda.scriptia.net for more information.


context('A context', {
  setup: function() {
    // do your setup
    this.something = 1
  teardown: function() {
    // do your cleaning
  should('run its setup function', function() {
    this.assertEqual(1, this.something);
  context('which is an inner context', function() {
    setup: function() {
      this.something += 1;
    should('run both setup functions', function() {
      this.assertEqual(2, this.something);


Note that since March, 2009 the author has abandoned work in jShoulda in favor of SugarTest, a new library wich uses an improved and richer syntax (and still works on top of JsUnitTest).
