It is typically combined with Karma: Karma as the test runner, Jasmine as the test system. Jasmine naturally reviews all the JavaScript classes and works to tell you the unhandled code. The downside is it doesn’t know which condition (programs) the test performed, however, Karma makes up for disadvantage.

  • It makes Angular Development Arsenal easy
  • Provides better Testing and Debugging
