I've had a few opportunities to put my TDD skills to use in this brave new frontier. So I wanted to share what I've learned, what pitfalls to avoid and where the low hanging fruit is.
Okay. So do I test in Selenium or Watir?
Wait just a minute now! Those are not unit testing frameworks. They can be great for integration testing to see the behaviour with the DOM and a backend. But TDD requires unit tests that are fast to write and fast to run. I’m going to use Jasmine but there’s lots of other unit test frameworks to pick from and I’ll walk through the ways to run it on a console, through a browser and distributed through many browsers.
This is part of a series I'm writing for Agile+ on Google+ so you can follow as I post them there
