Mocked nodemailer module for unit testing.

install

npm install nodemailer-mock --save-dev
yarn add -D nodemailer-mock

mock api

There are some special methods available on the mocked module to help with testing. They are under the .mock key of the mocked nodemailer.

  • nodemailerMock.mock.reset()
    • resets the mock class to default values
  • nodemailerMock.mock.getSentMail()
    • returns an array of sent emails
  • nodemailerMock.mock.setShouldFailOnce()
    • will return an error on the next call to transport.sendMail()
  • nodemailerMock.mock.setShouldFail(true|false)
    • indicate if errors should be returned for subsequent calls to transport.sendMail()
      • if true, return error
      • if false, return success
  • nodemailerMock.mock.setMockedVerify(true|false)
    • determine if a call to transport.verify() should be mocked or passed through to nodemailer
      • if true, use a mocked callback
      • if false, pass through to a real nodemailer transport
  • nodemailerMock.mock.setSuccessResponse(success)
    • set the success message that is returned in the callback for transport.sendMail()
  • nodemailerMock.mock.setFailResponse(err)
    • set the err that is returned in the callback for transport.sendMail()

Note that the .mock methods in previous versions are aliased to the new names.

usage

The mocked module behaves in a similar fashion to other transports provided by nodemailer.

setup test

const nodemailerMock = require('nodemailer-mock');
const transport = nodemailerMock.createTransport();

// the email you want to send
const email = ... // <-- your email here

use nodestyle callbacks

// send with nodestyle callback
transport.sendMail(email, function(err, info) {
  if (err) {
    return console.log('Error!', err, info);
  }
  return console.log('Success!', info);
}

// verify with nodestyle callback
transport.verify(function(err, success) {
  if (err) {
    return console.log('Error!', err);
  }
  return console.log('Success!', success);
});

use promises

// send with promises
transport.sendMail(email)
  .then(function(info) {
    console.log('Success!', info);
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    console.log('Error!', err);
  });

// verify with promises
transport.verify()
  .then(function(success) {
    console.log('Success!', success);
  });
  .catch(function(err) {
    console.log('Error!', err);
  });

use async/await

// send an email with async / wait
try {
  const info = await transport.sendMail(email);
} catch (err) {
  console.log('Error!', err);
}

// verify with async / wait
try {
  const info = await transport.verify();
} catch (err) {
  console.log('Error!', err);
}

example using mocha and mockery

Here is an example of using a mocked nodemailer class in a mocha test using mockery. Make sure that any modules that require()'s a mocked module must be called AFTER the module is mocked or node will use the unmocked version from the module cache. Note that this example uses async/await. See the module tests for additional example code.

const should = require('should');
const mockery = require('mockery');
const nodemailerMock = require('nodemailer-mock');

describe('Tests that send email',  async () {

  /* This could be an app, Express, etc. It should be 
  instantiated *after* nodemailer is mocked. */
  let app = null;

  before(async () {
    // Enable mockery to mock objects
    mockery.enable({
      warnOnUnregistered: false,
    });
    
    /* Once mocked, any code that calls require('nodemailer') 
    will get our nodemailerMock */
    mockery.registerMock('nodemailer', nodemailerMock)
    
    /*
    ##################
    ### IMPORTANT! ###
    ##################
    */
    /* Make sure anything that uses nodemailer is loaded here, 
    after it is mocked just above... */

  });
  
  afterEach(async () {
    // Reset the mock back to the defaults after each test
    nodemailerMock.mock.reset();
  });
  
  after(async () {
    // Remove our mocked nodemailer and disable mockery
    mockery.deregisterAll();
    mockery.disable();
  });
  
  it('should send an email using nodemailer-mock', async () {
    // call a service that uses nodemailer
    const response = ... // <-- your email code here
    
    // a fake test for something on our response
    response.value.should.be.exactly('value');
    
    // get the array of emails we sent
    const sentMail = nodemailerMock.mock.getSentMail();
    
    // we should have sent one email
    sentMail.length.should.be.exactly(1);
    
    // check the email for something
    sentMail[0].property.should.be.exactly('foobar');
  });
  
  it('should fail to send an email using nodemailer-mock', async () {
    // tell the mock class to return an error
    const err = 'My custom error';
    nodemailerMock.mock.setShouldFailOnce();
    nodemailerMock.mock.setFailResponse(err);
  
    // call a service that uses nodemailer
    var response = ... // <-- your code here
    
    // a fake test for something on our response
    response.error.should.be.exactly(err);
  });
  
  it('should verify using the real nodemailer transport', async () {
    // tell the mock class to pass verify requests to nodemailer
    nodemailerMock.mock.setMockedVerify(false);
  
    // call a service that uses nodemailer
    var response = ... // <-- your code here
    
    /* calls to transport.verify() will be passed through, 
       transport.sendMail() is still mocked */
  });
});
