In this post, we’ll take a look at how to get reporting setup for API tests. So far we have been printing results out on the console, now we’ll take a look at how to generate HTML report using mochawesome reporter.


Add mochawesome to the project:

npm install --save-dev mochawesome

Run the tests

To run the tests, you can simply pass it with the mocha command:

mocha test.js --reporter mochawesome

This will generate a mochawesome-report/ directory in your root folder which will contain a mochawesome.html file. Open the file to see the results, will look similar to this:

mochawesome html report

There you go, now you have HTML reporting setup with your tests!🙌

Check out this video to see how to generate an HTML report with the API tests we have created so far as well as how to plug this in with the npm script:
