Assertion Failed: A helper named 'my-component' could not be found


I’ve got an ember-cli app and try to test it the first time. The component was created with ember g component bs-slider.

When I run the tests (http://localhost:4200/tests) I get the following result:

Died on test #2     at Object.test (http://localhost:4200/assets/test-support.js:1984:11)

Since I’m using pods the component files are located under app/pods/components/bs-slider/[component.js|template.hbs] The test file is located under tests/integration/pods/components/bs-slider/component-test.js with the following content (right from the blueprint):

import { moduleForComponent, test } from 'ember-qunit';
import hbs from 'htmlbars-inline-precompile';

moduleForComponent('bs-slider', 'Integration | Component | bs slider', {
  integration: true

test('it renders', function(assert) {

  // Set any properties with this.set('myProperty', 'value');
  // Handle any actions with this.on('myAction', function(val) { ... });


  assert.equal(this.$().text().trim(), '');

  // Template block usage:
      template block text

  assert.equal(this.$().text().trim(), 'template block text');

Is there anything I can do to tell the test framework where the component is located?

Kind regards haggis

I am also facing the same problem inside ember-addon test cases. Does anybody have any ideas ? Kindly guide me. Thanks in advance.

Any update on this one?

I don’t use pods, but shouldn’t the path be:


Or perhaps:



Any update on this issue?

Remove below set of code and re-render

this.render(hbs{{#bs-slider}} template block text {{/bs-slider}});

assert.equal(this.$().text().trim(), ‘template block text’);

The path to your pods is determined in the config/environment.js using podModulePrefix property. See this blog post here

I believe the default path to pods is just app/.

It helped…Thank a lot
