  • Detox

    Gray box end-to-end testing and automation framework for mobile apps

    Project mention: React vs React Native: How Different Are They, Really? | | 2022-12-19

    End-to-end testing is completely different on React Native, however. None of the Selenium-based E2E testing tools will work; neither will newer tools like Cypress or Playwright. You may have expected this - these are all DOM-based, and there’s no DOM in React Native. So instead developers will have to learn Detox or Appium.

  • nyc

    the Istanbul command line interface

    Project mention: Testing Vue components the right way | | 2023-02-06

    Writing tests is essential, and knowing whether you test all the required cases for your logic is even more critical. The most common testing coverage tool is Istanbul, where you can see how well your tests exercise your code by lines, functions, and branches. Below is an example of how the test coverage report looks in your terminal:

  • miragejs

    A client-side server to build, test and share your JavaScript app

    Project mention: e2e testing setup and thoughts on Playwright | | 2022-12-16

    during development we use mirage JS to spin up an in-browser mock server which returns mock data for any API endpoints not currently implemented by the real backend. during integration testing we configure this server to return mock data for all API endpoints in the system, giving us a fixed environment against which our tests can run. test suites can be run in parallel since each time a playwright page is opened a new copy of the webapp, and thus a new copy of the mock server, is launched. these integration tests run whenever a frontend PR is opened or updated.

  • dredd

    Language-agnostic HTTP API Testing Tool

    Project mention: Integration testing best practices for API servers... | | 2022-12-05

    If you want to make sure the server implements a certain contract like there's an handler responding to a GET request to /API/what/ever I'd rather use something else. To be completely honest this is a topic I'm currently also searching for a really good solution but what I found so far (and looks promising) is or Both support OpenAPI testing so you can specify the contract as an OpenAPI spec and validate your server against it.
