- 1 answer

I try to run test on my angular project typing

ng test --browsers=PhantomJS

Before, I must install phantomjs manually using command

npm install [email protected] -ignore-scripts

But after ng test --br ... I receive this error

23 05 2019 08:08:28.194:ERROR [config]: Error in config file! TypeError [ERR_INVALID_ARG_TYPE]: The "path" argument must be of type string.

Answer

I was able to resolve the issue by removing "karma-phantomjs-launcher" from the karma.conf.js

note: was able to do this, because we were not using phantomjs, which from my understanding has been deprecated for a little while now.
