How to use jQuery with jsdom@5?

I am migrating from node.js to io.js and my old node.js code does not work with jsdom@5.

var jsdom=require('jsdom');
var $=require('jquery')(jsdom.jsdom().createWindow);


Here is the error:

/tmp/iojs/node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.js:28
if ( !w.document ) {
^
TypeError: Cannot read property 'document' of undefined
at module.exports (/tmp/iojs/node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.js:28:12)
at Object.<anonymous> (/tmp/iojs/test.js:2:24)

at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:472:10)
at startup (node.js:124:18)
at node.js:959:3


I am using latest
io.js v2.0.1
,
jsdom@5.4.1
and
jquery@2.1.4
.

What is the right way to use jQuery with jsdom@5?

Answer

The following is more in-line with what you are trying to do. Check out the repo

 // using Version 5.4.1
 var jsdom = require('jsdom').jsdom;
 var document = jsdom('<html></html>', {});
 var window = document.defaultView;
 var $ = require('jquery')(window);

The concrete problem with your original code is that it uses the createWindow API, which was removed in jsdom 1.0.0-pre.1. (Note that the document.parentWindow suggested in that change log entry was then itself removed in 4.0.0.)
