Code style guide

This project aims to follow the John Papa Angular 1 style guide

Unit tests

Unit tests are written using Jasmine and run with Karma.


Install Karma CLI

npm install -g karma-cli

Running the tests

Single run: grunt test

Watch for changes an re-run tests: grunt test-watch

E2E tests



npm install -g protractor


webdriver-manager update

Java Development Kit (JDK)

Environment variables

You will need to add the environment variables to run the tests locally.

  • Ask Ops to share 'HID E2E test environment vars' with you on LastPass.
  • Rename e2e-tests/enviroment.example.js to environment.js
  • Replace the file's content with the variables from LastPass

Running the tests

npm run protractor

Running a single test suite

protractor --suite="my-suite-name" src/e2e-tests/conf.js

What to do if it fails on TravisCI

The tests are prone to random failures on Travis. If this happens:

  • manually check on staging to see if you can recreate the problem
  • if you can, fix your code!
  • if you can't, try re-running the tests in Travis and if possible alter the failing test to make it more robust


If the tests fail you may need to log in and reset some things required for the tests manually.

As Test E2E User:

  • Unfavourite 'E2e test list - standard'
  • Delete 'E2e temp list'

As Test Admin E2E User:

  • Delete 'E2e temp mailchimp service' and 'E2e temp google service'
  • Delete 'E2e temp' user
  • Un-verify 'Test E2E user'
  • Cancel pending connection with 'Test E2E user'

Front end

Styleguide and pattern library

The styleguide and pattern library is available at


This project uses Sass

Run grunt watch to watch for changes and rebuild the css.


Global styles

Global styles, such as resets and grid styles, should be added to app/common.

Any _*.scss file in app/common (excluding sub-directories) will be automatically added to the CSS build.

Variables and mixins

As variables and mixins need to be imported before other Sass these are added to sub-directories in app/common and manually imported into app/common/_setup.scss

Component styles

Component specific files should be added to that component's directory, e.g. app/components/my-component/my-component.scss.

Any _*.scss file in app/components (including sub-directories) will be automatically added to the CSS build.
