module.exports = function(config) {
  'use strict';
  config.set({
    frameworks: ['mocha', 'sinon-chai'],

    # chai config
    client: {
      chai: {
        includeStack: true
      }
    }

    #...
  });
}

Usage

Each of the different Chai assertion suites is available in the tests:
describe 'karma tests with chai', ->

  it 'should expose the Chai assert method', ->
    assert.ok('everything', 'everything is ok');

  it 'should expose the Chai expect method', ->
    expect('foo').to.not.equal 'bar'

  it 'should expose the Chai should property', ->
    1.should.not.equal 2
    should.exist 123

Sinon and Chai matchers for Sinon are also available:
describe 'karma tests with sinon', ->

  it 'can spy on objects', ->
    foo = bar: ->
    sinon.spy foo, 'bar'

    foo.bar 'baz'

    foo.bar.should.have.been.calledWith 'baz'
