Monorepos: sharding Jest in CI

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Zigi - The context switching struggle is real
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • jest

    Delightful JavaScript Testing.

    For us, this has been the biggest downside: the Jest shard option is not compatible with the global coverage threshold. Surprisingly, this is not mentioned anywhere in the docs, but there is this issue open in their repo. Hopefully, this feature will become compatible with the shard flag soon. In the meantime, we’ve had to disable the global coverage threshold while we explore other ways to set it.

  • nx

    Smart, Fast and Extensible Build System

    We mainly instrument our monorepo with pnpm for the dependencies and Nx for the tooling and running tasks. However, orchestrating a monorepo is challenging, and scaling it correctly is more complicated than you’d think.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
