The 'describe' keyword in javascript

So I am a newbie in javascript and i had been going through some one else's code and I found this..

describe('deviceready', function() {
it('should report that it fired', function() {
spyOn(app, 'report');
app.deviceready();
expect(app.report).toHaveBeenCalledWith('deviceready');
});
});


What I don't understand is:
What exactly does the
describe
keyword do?

info:

- Its a phonegap application

- We are using the spine.js and jQuery libraries

Answer

Describe is a function in the Jasmine testing framework. It simply describes the suite of test cases enumerated by the "it" functions.
