config configuration dotfiles mocha.js node.js

Is there a .mocha file where I can specify defaults such as –no-colors?

I’d like to set some defaults for mocha without having to type them each time. Does mocha look for a config file / dotfile anywhere, as jshint looks for .jshintrc and npm looks for package.json?

Yes. You can create a file ./test/mocha.opts and in the file you can specify --no-colors.

See mocha.opts on Mocha Doc for more information.
