See the website


Japa is an API-first testing framework. It focuses only on testing Node.js (backend) applications, thus resulting in a fast, small, and simple tests runner. Most mainstream testing frameworks in JavaScript are heavily influenced by the frontend ecosystem, or we can say they are frontend first. With Japa, focus is on growing the ecosystem around the needs of backend testing.
