    • Seems to work fine on normal javascript files but is not able to figure out require.js
      Is this one the issues you are currently looking into.
    • If you look at there have been discussion around this. It *can* work with require.js but its not straight forward. I am working on better support to make it more intuitive.
  • Runner Vs. Adapter?

    • What is the difference between these two tools?
    • One is just adds a context menu extension to VS (which works for VS 2010+) and the other integrates into the VS Test Explorer (which works for VS 2012+)

    • Matt, I think you have made a great test runner! I just have one small issue I was hoping you could help me with. It seems when multiple builds are queued up on our TFS build server consecutively, the second one always fails because it us unable to clean up the build folder. It is unable to clean it up because it cannot delete phantomjs.exe file. So, I was wondering if Chutzapah.ITestRunner has either methods to close phantomjs.exe, or there's some other way to do it? Thank you in advance, Ilya
