TDD AngularJs Services Test- continue with last post

Currently a lot of developer team like follow by the TDD pattern, it means that write your test first then write the code to let it pass.

Any app either is for display data or just for possessing data, so my first test that I lik to build the data services first. And know we need follow the TDD principle, so we need to create the test first.

Continue with my last post, then I create a folder name services under the spec folder and create a movies.services.spec.js.

Now  here is my first test:


describe('data services',function(){
    var moviesData = {"Search":[{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope","Year":"1977","imdbID":"tt0076759","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BZGEzZTExMDEtNjg4OC00NjQxLTk5NTUtNjRkNjA3MmYwZjg1XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTQxNzMzNDI@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back","Year":"1980","imdbID":"tt0080684","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BYmViY2M2MTYtY2MzOS00YjQ1LWIzYmEtOTBiNjhlMGM0NjZjXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDYyMDk5MTU@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi","Year":"1983","imdbID":"tt0086190","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BODllZjg2YjUtNWEzNy00ZGY2LTgyZmQtYTkxNDYyOWM3OTUyXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTQxNzMzNDI@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: The Force Awakens","Year":"2015","imdbID":"tt2488496","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BOTAzODEzNDAzMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDU1MTgzNzE@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace","Year":"1999","imdbID":"tt0120915","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BM2FmZGIwMzAtZTBkMS00M2JiLTk2MDctM2FlNTQ2OWYwZDZkXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDYyMDk5MTU@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith","Year":"2005","imdbID":"tt0121766","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BNTc4MTc3NTQ5OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTg0NjI4NA@@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones","Year":"2002","imdbID":"tt0121765","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BNDRkYzA4OGYtOTBjYy00YzFiLThhYmYtMWUzMDBmMmZkM2M3XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDYyMDk5MTU@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: The Clone Wars","Year":"2008","imdbID":"tt1185834","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMTI1MDIwMTczOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTI4MDE3MQ@@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: The Clone Wars","Year":"2008–2015","imdbID":"tt0458290","Type":"series","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMTM0NjQ2Mjk0OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODQ3Njc3Mg@@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Clone Wars","Year":"2003–2005","imdbID":"tt0361243","Type":"series","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMjE2Mjk5Mzk3M15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDkzMTIzMQ@@._V1_SX300.jpg"}],"totalResults":"354","Response":"True"};

    it('should return search movies data',function(){
        var service = {};

        expect(service.search('star wars')).toEqual(moviesData);
    })
});

By the way, before I start I already run npm test, so you could see my test is fail.

So next we are going to write a code to let it pass.


describe('data services',function(){
    var moviesData = {"Search":[{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope","Year":"1977","imdbID":"tt0076759","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BZGEzZTExMDEtNjg4OC00NjQxLTk5NTUtNjRkNjA3MmYwZjg1XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTQxNzMzNDI@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back","Year":"1980","imdbID":"tt0080684","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BYmViY2M2MTYtY2MzOS00YjQ1LWIzYmEtOTBiNjhlMGM0NjZjXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDYyMDk5MTU@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi","Year":"1983","imdbID":"tt0086190","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BODllZjg2YjUtNWEzNy00ZGY2LTgyZmQtYTkxNDYyOWM3OTUyXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTQxNzMzNDI@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: The Force Awakens","Year":"2015","imdbID":"tt2488496","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BOTAzODEzNDAzMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDU1MTgzNzE@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace","Year":"1999","imdbID":"tt0120915","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BM2FmZGIwMzAtZTBkMS00M2JiLTk2MDctM2FlNTQ2OWYwZDZkXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDYyMDk5MTU@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith","Year":"2005","imdbID":"tt0121766","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BNTc4MTc3NTQ5OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTg0NjI4NA@@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones","Year":"2002","imdbID":"tt0121765","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BNDRkYzA4OGYtOTBjYy00YzFiLThhYmYtMWUzMDBmMmZkM2M3XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDYyMDk5MTU@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: The Clone Wars","Year":"2008","imdbID":"tt1185834","Type":"movie","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMTI1MDIwMTczOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTI4MDE3MQ@@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: The Clone Wars","Year":"2008–2015","imdbID":"tt0458290","Type":"series","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMTM0NjQ2Mjk0OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODQ3Njc3Mg@@._V1_SX300.jpg"},{"Title":"Star Wars: Clone Wars","Year":"2003–2005","imdbID":"tt0361243","Type":"series","Poster":"https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMjE2Mjk5Mzk3M15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDkzMTIzMQ@@._V1_SX300.jpg"}],"totalResults":"354","Response":"True"};

    it('should return search movies data',function(){
        var service = {};
        service.search = function (){
            return moviesData;
        }

        expect(service.search('star wars')).toEqual(moviesData);
    })
});

Now the test is passed, but this is not what we want, we want is an angularjs service instance.

That is my next post.  - to be continue...

 

The architecture of real live AngularJS — Get start with angularJs — Part 2

A good project should has a good architecture, and in angularjs is very easy to modular your projects. And also your project will be easy to extend it.

For example like this:

(function () {
    "use strict";
   
   // app.js
    var app = angular.module("productManagement",
                            ["services",
                             "productResource"]);
}());

//this is services.js
(function () {
    "use strict";
    angular
        .module("services",
                ["$http"])
}());
 

//this is my productResource.js
(function () {
    "use strict";
    angular
        .module("services")
        .factory("productResource",
                ["$http",
                 productResource]);

    function productResource($http) {
        //url could be external or internal
        return $http("/api/products/:productId")
    }
}());

So every javascript file just has few lines. And it separate the angular project to three modules, the main moudule is the “productManagement” and it has two dependants are “services” and “productResource”.

I came from C# background, so I like write code also follow the rule  single responsibility and dependency inversion.

It is much easy to read and extensible.
