unit test for node project (teams for education)

How to use the Input field for unit tests for node projects in Teams for Education? The online documentation doesn't use it. Is that because it is not implemented?

P.S. I would like to link to my Teams For Education example but I can't so I used change-calculator-CLI which is similar but not identical.

Inside of node, you can do something like:

let whateverToPrompt = prompt('Question here')

and refer to whateverToPrompt later to get the answer they put.

What you're suggesting is similar to the what I have in change-calculator-CLI project above. Reading from the tty is impossible in the unit test that I created for above.

Note that my question is specifically for unit test for Teams for Education projects where I am able to provide an input value for each test. Even this doesn't seem to work at all.

You ever figure this out? You're using unit tests and not the input/output test they have for education correct?

I was using the education input/output tests but trying to input 2 variables and just can't get that working. I've since been experimenting with unit tests and jest but haven't been able to handle prompt().

No, but I reported it to Lena Sawyer from REPLIT. I am testing under Teams for Education. The problem is with programs with multiple, separate lines of input. Seems that the tests just time out (and thereby fail).

I've asked about the same thing a couple weeks ago here (https://community.replit.com/t/multiple-input-output-in-node-js/167). I'm also using Teams for Education.

Currently I use functions with inputs to run my unit tests, and have students enter values on the code side for variables that are sent to the the function. It would be ideal to allow the prompt() twice for the student instead. Currently it times out as you have said.

If you drum up a work around at any point, I'd love to hear about it. I'm still experimenting when I find time each week with a solution. I'm just not that skilled at Jest at this time.

REPLIT has employee Lena Sawyer and I have her email. I report it to her and she forwarded to the engineering team.
If I hear back I will let you know.
