Thank you! :)

Can you create a cheat sheet for Jasmine 2.x?

The list is not complete. There are no "ddescribe", "iit" and perhaps other methods.

"ddescribe" and "iit" were renamed to "fdescribe" and "fit". (The f standing for focus)

Helpfull cheat sheet, Thank you.

Beware, this cheat sheet contain hidden characters, so direct copy paste to Visual Studio will result in "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL" exception when running JavaScript in the Browser.

Thanks! great list, the syntax is outdated. spyOn now uses dot for callThrough and returnValue such that .andCallThrough became .and.callThrough
