What is QUnit?
What is a Unit?
Within the simplest case, it is a function that can affect a function that gives the same result for a given input. Unit testing is straightforward, but you would need to deal with side effects most of the time, which means DOM manipulations. It is still helpful to figure out which units we will structure our code into and make unit tests accordingly.
Why QUnit Testing? Basics of QUnit Testing Fundamentals
QUnit is an open-source unit testing framework used for writing and running tests. The following points provided below are its key features:
- QUnit provides customized Assertions for testing expected results.
- QUnit provides Test fixtures for executing tests.
- Unit testing with QUnit tests allows you to write codes faster, which increases the standard.
- QUnit is elegantly simple. It takes less time and is usually less complex.
- QUnit tests are often run automatically, and they check their results and provide immediate feedback.
- QUnit tests are often organized into test suites containing test cases and other suites.
- QUnit shows the test progress in a bar, illuminating in green if the test is good and red if it fails.
Additional Benefits of Unit Testing with QUnit
- Tests allow Refactoring
- Tests improve Design
- Tests constrain Features
- Tests reduce the cost of change
- Testing makes Development faster
- Tests reduce fear
- Tests reduce bugs in existing features
- Tests reduce bugs in new features

QUnit features a lot more to the supply chain, with specific support for testing asynchronous code like timeouts, AJAX, and events. The visual test runner provided by QUnit helps debug codes by making it easy to rerun specific tests and provides stack traces for failed assertions and caught exceptions.
