to be

  • <string> [not] to be <string>

Asserts === equality.

expect('Hello', 'to be', 'Hello');

In case of a failing expectation you get the following output:

expect('Hello beautiful!', 'to be', 'Hello world!');
expected 'Hello beautiful!' to be 'Hello world!'
 
Hello beautiful!
Hello world!

This assertion can be negated using the not flag:

expect('Hello', 'not to be', 'Hello world!');
expect('1', 'not to be', 1);

In case of a failing expectation you get the following output:

expect('Hello world!', 'not to be', 'Hello world!');
expected 'Hello world!' not to be 'Hello world!'
