Home Forums JavaScript [Solved] Simpler way to write this snippet? Reply To: Simpler way to write this snippet?


I have proper names in my app code… just used the letters for a primitive test case.

Honestly, it makes more sense to have “proper names” in the test case – that’s where it’s going to be looked at. In your production code, things can (should) be minimized.

Also, it makes a lot more sense now that I know a, b, and c are in a different scope than d.

You’ll notice the code snippet is used in both the right and left test functions. Is there a way to possibly just use it once without have to be redundant?

You could make it into a method (of your test object, or it could be a bare function if you want to use it globally).
