hendry: Thanks.
15:20:53 [hendry]
so there is async testing functionality
15:20:56 [hendry]
timeouts
15:21:21 [hendry]
http://git.webvm.net/?p=wctmb2;a=blob;f=runner.js is the beef
15:22:35 [wilhelm]
Hm. It might be a bit overkill for our rather simple use case. But it does things mine doesn't - like returning details about how the testing goes.
15:22:58 [hendry]
yes, that's useful where you don't have firebug
15:23:05 [hendry]
and that's a lot of places on mobile
15:24:14 [wilhelm]
Yes. How about I copy out the relevant bits from this test runner and put it into mine? Then we'd get the functionality we want without having to use all 300 lines of code.
15:24:25 [hendry]
agreed
15:24:32 [hendry]
there is some fluff in runner.js
15:24:56 [hendry]
e.g. chooseSuites
15:24:59 [wilhelm]
Very well. Then I'll do that.
15:25:26 [hendry]
cool
