tns test ios

Description

Runs the tests in your project on connected iOS devices or the iOS Simulator. Your project must already be configured for unit testing by running $ tns test init.

WARNING: You can run this command only on macOS systems. To view the complete help for this command, run $ tns help test ios

Commands

Usage Synopsis
Run tests on all connected devices $ tns test ios [--watch] [--debug-brk]
Run tests on a selected device $ tns test ios --device <Device ID> [--watch] [--debug-brk]
Run tests in the iOS Simulator $ tns test ios --emulator [--watch] [--debug-brk]

Options

  • --watch - If set, when you save changes to the project, changes are automatically synchronized to the connected device and tests are re-ran.
  • --device - Specifies the serial number or the index of the connected device on which you want to run tests. To list all connected devices, grouped by platform, run $ tns device. You cannot set --device and --emulator simultaneously. <Device ID> is the device index or identifier as listed by the $ tns device command.
  • --emulator - Runs tests on the iOS Simulator. You cannot set --device and --emulator simultaneously.
  • --debug-brk - Runs the tests under the debugger. The debugger will break just before your tests are executed, so you have a chance to place breakpoints.
