Q: Add / Swap / Shift Left / Right in List (Unit Testing)

+3 votes

You are given the following JavaScript code:

function createList() {
    let data = [];
    return {
        add: function (item) {
            data.push(item)
        },
        shiftLeft: function () {
            if (data.length > 1) {
                let first = data.shift();
                data.push(first);
            }
        },
        shiftRight: function () {
            if (data.length > 1) {
                let last = data.pop();
                data.unshift(last);
            }
        },
        swap: function (index1, index2) {
            if (!Number.isInteger(index1) || index1 < 0 || index1 >= data.length ||
                !Number.isInteger(index2) || index2 < 0 || index2 >= data.length ||
                index1 === index2) {
                return false;
            }
            let temp = data[index1];
            data[index1] = data[index2];
            data[index2] = temp;
            return true;
        },
        toString: function () {
            return data.join(", ");
        }
    };
}

Functionality:

The above code creates a list data structure that holds items (of any type). It supports the following operations:

  • add(item) – appends given item to the end of the list.
  • shiftLeft() – shifts all elements one position left and the first elements comes last (with rotation).
  • shiftRight() – shifts all elements one position right and the last elements comes first (with rotation).
  • swap(index1, index2) – swaps the items at the specified indexes and returns true. If any of the two indexes does not exist or they are equal the collection stays unchanged and the method returns false.
  • toString() – returns the string representations of the list items, separated by “, “.

Examples:

This is an example how this code is intended to be used:

Sample code usage:

let list = createList();
list.add(1);
list.add("two");
list.add(3);
console.log(`list = [${list}]`);
list.shiftLeft();
console.log("shifted left <--");
console.log(`list = [${list}]`);
list.add(["four"]);
console.log(`list = [${list}]`);
list.shiftRight();
console.log("shifted right -->");
console.log(`list = [${list}]`);
console.log(`Swaping [0] and [3]: ${list.swap(0,3)}`);
console.log(`list = [${list}]`);
console.log(`Swaping [1] and [1]: ${list.swap(1,1)}`);
console.log(`list = [${list}]`);

Corresponding output:

list = [1, two, 3]
shifted left <--
list = [two, 3, 1]
list = [two, 3, 1, four]
shifted right -->
list = [four, two, 3, 1]
Swaping [0] and [3]: true
list = [1, two, 3, four]
Swaping [1] and [1]: false
list = [1, two, 3, four]

Your Task

Using Mocha and Chai write JS unit tests to test the entire functionality of the list object.  Your code will only be provided the createList function, how you test the list is entirely up to you - whether you create a new list before each test or share the same list between tests.

You should have at least 6 test cases, make sure you cover all edge cases. You may use the following code as a template:

describe("TODO …", function() {
    it("TODO …", function() {
        // TODO: …
    });
    // TODO: …
});

Here are the tests:
