  • The ultimate answer to Belt vs Js in ReScript
    5 projects | | 29 Jan 2023
    At Carla, we had a different situation. Having a huge codebase with Js, Belt, and WhateverExtra all over the place, it would be too much work to take some existing customized stdlibs like rescript-js or @dzakh/rescript-stdlib and update old code with them.

    Another popular option is to use bindings for Jest. However, in my opinion, Jest is a monstrous combine that is slow, has a hacky mock system, bad ESM support, and purely tries to mimic DOM API with JSDOM. AVA literally doesn't have any of these. Also, the available Jest bindings don't allow doing multiple assertions per test, which is often useful to me.

    In order to write tests in ReScript, and thus test your code directly, you can use bs-jest, which provides ReScript bindings to Jest. If you prefer, you can also use the slightly less mature bs-mocha. You can also test the generated JavaScript or TypeScript files with no extra configuration.
