About


Chai has several interfaces that allow the developer to choose the most comfortable. The chain-capable BDD styles provide an expressive language & readable style, while the TDD assert style provides a more classical feel.

Plugins extend Chai's assertions to new contexts such as vendor integration & object construction. Developers can build their own plugins to share with community or use the plugin pattern to DRY up existing tests.
