    To run the example code from the top-level application directory,

    $ node ./examples/index.js

    Tests

    Unit

    Unit tests use the Mocha test framework with Chai assertions. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

    $ make test

    All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

    Test Coverage

    This repository uses Istanbul as its code coverage tool. To generate a test coverage report, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

    $ make test-cov

    Istanbul creates a ./reports/coverage directory. To access an HTML version of the report,

    $ make view-cov
