// I want to create a connection with the database, and when I'm done, I call done().
before(function(done) {
// In our tests we use the test db
// use describe to give a title to your test suite, in this case the tile is "Account"
// and then specify a function in which we are going to declare all the tests
// we want to run. Each test starts with the function it() and as a first argument
// we have to provide a meaningful title for it, whereas as the second argument we
// specify a function that takes a single parameter, "done", that we will use
// to specify when our test is completed, and that's what makes easy
// to perform async test!
describe('Account', function() {
it('should return error trying to save duplicate username', function(done) {
var profile = {

firstName: 'Valerio',

// once we have specified the info we want to send to the server via POST verb,
// we need to actually perform the action on the resource, in this case we want to
// POST on /api/profiles and we want to send some info
// We do this using the request object, requiring supertest!
// end handles the response
