Here in Syndicode we have told you many times that Vue has a great future. First of all, its benefits make it easier to use. Secondly, it has Jest, and Jest makes testing Vue easier.
Setting up the testing environment is easy:
- We start off by importing Vue and the necessary components that we want to test.
- We use
describeto encapsulate numerous unit tests surrounding our
- Each unit test is created with the
itfunction, firstly providing a description of exactly what we’re testing, followed by a function.
- Finally, we assert that this is true by using
expect. If we check our terminal with
$ npm run test:unit --watch, we’ll see a
PASSfor this unit test.
- To use TypeScript in your tests install
@babel/preset-typescriptand add it to your Babel config.
Jest can be used in projects that use Webpack to manage assets, styles, and compilation. Webpack does offer some unique challenges over other tools.
