Full-Stack Acceptance Testing with Serenity/JS and the Screenplay Pattern

Serenity/JS Assertions

@serenity-js/assertions is an assertions library implementing the Screenplay Pattern.


To install this module, run the following command in your computer terminal:

npm install --save-dev @serenity-js/{core,assertions}

Performing verifications using Ensure

import { actorCalled } from '@serenity-js/core';
import { Ensure, endsWith } from '@serenity-js/assertions';
import { Website } from '@serenity-js/protractor';

const actor = actorCalled('Erica');

    Ensure.that(Website.title(), endsWith('Serenity/JS'))

Controlling execution flow using Check

import { actorCalled } from '@serenity-js/core';
import { Check } from '@serenity-js/assertions'; 
import { Click, isVisible } from '@serenity-js/protractor';

    Check.whether(NewsletterModal, isVisible())

Synchronising the test with the System Under Test using Wait

import { actorCalled } from '@serenity-js/core';
import { Click, isVisible, Wait } from '@serenity-js/protractor';

    Wait.until(CloseModalButton, isVisible()),

Defining custom expectations using Expectation.thatActualShould

import { actorCalled } from '@serenity-js/core';
import { Expectation, Ensure } from '@serenity-js/assertions';

function isDivisibleBy(expected: Answerable<number>): Expectation<number> {
    return Expectation.thatActualShould<number, number>('have value divisible by', expected)
        .soThat((actualValue, expectedValue) => actualValue % expectedValue === 0);

    Ensure.that(4, isDivisibleBy(2)),

Composing expectations using

import { actorCalled } from '@serenity-js/core';
import { Expectation, Ensure, and, or, isGreaterThan, isLessThan, equals  } from '@serenity-js/assertions';

function isWithin(lowerBound: number, upperBound: number) {
    return Expectation
        .to(`have value within ${ lowerBound } and ${ upperBound }`)
           or(isGreaterThan(lowerBound), equals(lowerBound)),
           or(isLessThan(upperBound), equals(upperBound)),

    Ensure.that(5, isWithin(3, 6)),
