Custom argument matcher

Jasmine provides a number of asymmetric matchers out of the box for use in comparing argument values and equality. If you want to make your own to encapsulate some other logic you can.


Creator function similar to jasmine.any()

function myChecker(someState) {
  return {

This is called by Jasmine's equality function with the object being compared.

    asymmetricMatch: function(compareTo) {
      return compareTo.myState === someState;

Custom stringification for Jasmine pretty printer. Used in failure messages.

    jasmineToString: function() {
      return '<myChecker: ' + someState '>';

You can then use it in an expectation

expect({myState: 'things'}).toEqual(myChecker('things'));
