Example – PhantomJS with Qunit

(function () {     
   var url, timeout,args = require('system').args, page = require('webpage').create(); 
   url = args[1]; 
   timeout = parseInt(10, 10); 
   
   page.onConsoleMessage = function (msg) {  
      //prints all the console messages 
      console.log(msg); 
   }; 
   page.onInitialized = function () {  // called when page is initialized 
      page.evaluate(callqunit); 
   }; 
   page.onCallback = function (message) { // called from  
      var result, failed; 
      
      if (message) {  
         if (message.name === 'QUnit.done') { 
            result = message.data; 
            failed = !result || !result.total || result.failed;  
            
            if (!result.total) { 
               console.error('No tests were executed'); 
            } 
            pageexit(failed ? 1 : 0); 
         } 
      } 
   };  
   page.open(url, function (status) { // opening page  
      if (status !== 'success') { 
         console.error('Unable to access network: ' + status); 
         pageexit(1); 

      } else { 
         var checkqunit = page.evaluate(function () { 
            //evaluating page and chcking if qunit object 
               is present on the given page url 
            return (typeof QUnit === 'undefined' || !QUnit); 
         }); 
         
         if (checkqunit) { 
            console.error('Qunit scripts are not present on the page'); 
            pageexit(1); 
         }             
         
         //timeout of 10seconds is used otherwise message from console will get printed. 
         setTimeout(function () { 
            console.error('The specified timeout of ' + timeout + ' seconds has expired. 
               Aborting...'); 
            pageexit(1); 
         }, timeout * 1000);           
      } 
   });  
   function callqunit() {
