Shenandoah: JavaScript Unit Testing

Shenandoah is a package for unit testing JavaScript either in the browser or at the command line. In its console mode, Shenandoah integrates as a Buildr test framework, so you can use it directly with

require 'shenandoah/buildr'
# ...
test.using :shenandoah

and then the usual Buildr commands for running tests.

Shenandoah is based on the Blue Ridge JavaScript testing plugin for rails and combines Screw.Unit (for BDD-style unit tests), Smoke (for mocks), and env.js and rhino (for browserless execution of DOM-based javascript). It is distributed as a gem. For more details, including installation and running directions, please have a look at the README:
