Light comes with an easy way to test your routes that is compatible with ava, jest and other testing frameworks. Light exports a createTest function which generates a server for you containing all of the routes. You can then use that server to start and test it, or you can plug it into a library such as supertest to test it.

createTest returns an object with the keys server and router which you can use. The server is an HTTP server, and the router is a find-my-way route object which you can use to insert more routes if you need.


const supertest = require('supertest');
const { createTest } = require('light');
const { server } = createTest();
it('returns JSON', async () => {
const result = await supertest(server).get('/');
hello: 'world',
