Class Methods

Ponicode Unit Text Extension supports generating unit tests for method.


  1. Identify a method you want to test
  2. Ensure that there is a Pony icon on its left
  3. Click on the decorator “Ponicode Unit Test”
  4. Select the relevant test cases and modify the initialization in the Before each section

You can also make assertions on the properties of the instance itself:


export class Requestor {
        ) {
        this.headers = {authorization: `Bearer: ${auth_token}`, 'X-Version':version}
    async get_post_response(url, data ){
        try {
            const options = {
                headers: this.headers,
            const response = await, data,options)
            if (response.status != 200) {
                this.Reporter.log(`Request not valid for url ${url}` )
            return response
        catch (e) {
            let error_data = {
                type: "ErrorReport",
                message: "Request failure",
                error: e.string,
                data: {
                    url: url,
                    data: data
            if (!e.isAxiosError) {
                const err = e
                if (err) {
                    this.Reporter.log(err.response && err.response.status)
                    this.Reporter.log(err.response &&
            throw('Error with request')


A Requestor class object is available. Right-click on the get_post_response method and select “Ponicode: Unit Test”. The Ponicode Interface on the right contains a new section named Before each.


This section allows you to instantiate a context before testing your methods. You can for example instantiate you class instance.

Once you add a test case to your file you can observe the test file integrates a beforeEach statement.

const d_methods = require("./d_methods")
// @ponicode
describe("inst.get_post_response", () => {
    let inst

    beforeEach(() => {
        inst = new d_methods.Requestor()

    test("0", async () => {
        await inst.get_post_response("", { isPonicodeSuper: true })
