VS Code Plugin
plugin directly integrates with Travetto framework, exposing the
The currently supported features are:
- Real-time test evaluation and debugging
- Application launching with parameters
- Miscellaneous utilities
The test related functionality relies upon the
test module being installed, and used to define tests (
Real-time test evaluation.
The real-time test functionality will re-evaluate your test code on save. This means as you type and save, the test will run. The test will provide feedback inline, using green to indicate success, red to indicate failure, and gray to indicate unknown.
Travetto: Re-Run tests to force a full re-run of all the tests in a given document
While working on a test, if you want to debug it, you can press running
command-shift-t on OSX or
ctrl-shift-t on win/linux. This will start a debug session with the current
line activated as a breakpoint. This allows you to seamlessly jump into a debug session while writing tests.
Travetto: Debug tests to force a running all the tests in debug mode. Will not establish a breakpoint, but will use any existing breakpoints.
While using the
di, a common pattern is to use
@Application annotations to define entry points into the application. These entry points can take parameters, and if using the cli, you can invoke them with parameters, type checked and validated.
The plugin exposes this functionality as a command, to allow you to debug these applications directly from vscode.
Launching relies upon the command
Travetto: Run New Application. This will show you a list of the available entry points in the application, with the parameters they support. Selecting an application will take you through the parameter flow to select inputs, and once all parameters are selected, your application will launch.
After running and selecting a configuration for an application, you can now access those configurations via
Travetto: Run Recent Application. This allows you to execute a recent run that you can invoke immediately without prompting for inputs. If you find yourself running the same application multiple times, you can also invoke
Travetto: Run Most Recent Application to bypass application selection overall.
Exporting and Customizing
If at any point in time, you wish to modify the launch configuration of any application, you can execute the command
Travetto: Export Application Launch, and it will provide the same options as launch. The only difference is that instead of running the application when it's done, you will have a new launch config in your debug launch configs. This option is now completely independent from the plugin and can be modified without issue.
Travetto: Run New Application to launch a new application config
Travetto: Run Recent Application to launch a previously configured application
Travetto: Run Most Recent Application to launch the most recently run configured application
Travetto: Export Application Launch to export an application config
Currently the supported commands are:
Travetto: Clean to run the cli operation
travetto clean. This will purge the project's cache, which is generally useful for things like npm installs.
- You should have the
Travetto framework installed, version 0.5.0 and higher.
- Tests require the
test module to be installed.
- Application running requires the
di module to be installed.
