NOTE: Laika is an archived project and there are some other alternatives you can use instead:


Laika internally uses mocha as the testing framework. So most of mocha’s options are available on laika.

run laika -h to see options

Laika Options

You can provide options via a laika.opts file (very similar to mocha.opts).

A sample laika.opts file for coffeescript and bdd is shown below.

--ui bdd
--compilers coffee:coffee-script
--reporter dot
