QUnit: Enable auto-reloading of the testsuite

Reported by: dwt Owned by: joern
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: qunit Version: 1.3.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

It is very reasonable to auto-reload the testsuite every n seconds (for example after it has run through).

In the best case (that is the testsuite runs fast) this allows you to continously run your tests and completely focus on your editor, just occasionally glancing at your testsuite to see its progress.

This is exhileratingly good at keeping you focused on your problems and not caring about how to again switch applications, reload your testsite (and every other time seeing that you switched to another application / browser-page in the meantime and therefore just did something completely different).

So, please add this (a simple setTimeout at the end of the testrun does everything you need).

I've since implemented a testrunner that does this here:

Perhaps you would like to merge this into qunit?

Ah, it only restarts the testsuite every 3 seconds after it has run through. And it also provides UI to cancel and restart this cycle.
