a simple javascript code coverage tool...

How coveraje works

coveraje inspects the javascript source code and injects calls to internal helper functions. The injected code is used internal only. No modification of the original source code is needed.

E.g. the code

var x = test2();

is recreated as (simplified for demonstration)

visit(0, 4);
var x = visitAndReturn(test2(), 16, 20);

where visit and visitAndReturn are the helper funtions. The numbers are the position in the original file. With this, coveraje is able to show which parts are visited zero times, once, or more than once.

There are special cases for branches and function parameters (and there will be more in the future), but the process is always the same.
