Run karma tests with gulp and retrieve result in test runner tab

Hi,

I'm running my karma test in gulp task which does a lot other things (transpiling Typescript, less, livereload & more). This task is started in webstorm, and my karma results are displayed with all gulp output, as expected. Is there a way to display the results in the test runner tab without create a karma run configuration?

Our workflow fully relies on gulp for some reasons: other devs in my company uses other IDEs and it's faster to start with gulp already configured than configuring every Webstorm specific stuff for a project (we have a yeoman generator for new projects and with single npm install, every dev is ready to go on an existing project), so I wouldn't configure every project I have spearately, it would be way faster and easier to be able to configure webstorm or karma for that use, and not configure webstorm for everything I have in my gulpfile.

Moreover, every IDE specific stuff is not commited in our SCM.

I saw the karma plugin karma-intellij but it comes without any documentation or any kind of explaination about its aim...

Thanks for any help.

No, you need using karma run configuration to be able to see the results as a tree in test runner tab. there is no way to have a special UI and treatments for each Gulp task being run

Thanks for your reply, it seams like I'll have to continue to read the tests result in my gulp run tab :)
