# Angular Unit Tests

See John Papa’s AngularJS Testing Examples. You can download the codebase and try out tests. If you want to start a new codebase that utilizes this testing strategy, you can use Angular Hot Towel to scaffold a new project for you. Keep in mind that you probably not need the src/server folder nor the separate src/client folder in the generated codebase

In the src/client/app folder in the example codebase, you will find several component folders.

In those component folders, you will find spec.js files for tests of controllers, route definitions, and services.

For examples from an ES2015 code base, refer to the NG6 codebase.

In the client/app/components/ folders, you will find examples of tests.
