  • What are some popular/suggested NPM packages for unit testing coverage?
    Tape is a very lightweight test harness for Node. I don't believe it has any code coverage feature. I may ask them if there are separate NPM packages to measure code coverage that are compatible with Tape.
  • How do I write meaningful unit tests, rather than useless or low-value unit tests?
    As you (and several others) suggested, measuring ‘coverage’ could be helpful for me. As you know my programming language is JavaScript. My test runner is Tape, which does not have any way to measure coverage. Do you have suggestions on helpful/reliable packages which I can use to measure coverage?
    OK understood on all, and noted. Thanks. The language I'm using is JavaScript, and the test runner I'm using is Tape. It is good, but very lightweight, so it has no coverage feature. Any suggestions for a separate package I can use to assess coverage? I'm not sure if you're a JS person or not, sorry for assuming. If not, no worries--I can do my own research.
