ngx-speculoos

Simpler, cleaner Angular unit tests

ngx-speculoos helps you write simpler, cleaner unit tests for your Angular components, based on the page object pattern. It also provides utilities to make writing Angular unit tests easier.

The library simply wraps the standard Angular ComponentFixture, and you should thus be able to understand and start using ngx-speculoos in just a few minutes. It's testing framework agnostic (no ties to Jasmine). But if you use Jasmine, we have custom matchers.

ngx-valdemort

Simple, consistent validation error messages for your Angular forms.

Are you tired of writing the same validation logic again, and again, in your Angular forms? You need a lot of code and duplications to display appropriate error messages, when the form is submitted or when the input field is touched. And maintaining a consistent look-and-feel in a big app is cumbersome, error-prone, and can lead to inconsistencies if every developer doesn't use the same technique.

ngx-valdemort is easy to use, provides consistent and default error messages, which stay customisable. Usage of i18n, HTML, or pipes in message is still possible, whether in reactive or template-driven forms.

DbSetup An OSS Java API to populate your database for your unit tests.

Without XML. Without dependencies. And blazingly fast.

Using a DB in your application? And have some unit tests for your queries?
Alright, you are the 99%.
And we have something to help you.

DbSetup is a free, open-source Java API that helps you setup your database data to execute DAO/Repository unit tests. Much simpler than DbUnit, it focuses on a single task: populate the database with test data.
