  • Speeding up the JavaScript ecosystem – Polyfills gone rogue

    ljharb is an extremely interesting person. There’s no doubting the positive impact he’s had on the OSS community and the work he’s done.

    However, there are some things he does that are incomprehensible.

    For example, Enzyme. Over three years ago this issue was opened for Enzyme on React 17: https://github.com/enzymejs/enzyme/issues/2429

    Nothing moved for a while, and I think he said something along the lines of “if you want React 17 support, stop complaining and help”. So the community got involved. There are multiple PRs adding React 17 support. Many unofficial React 17 adapters. A lot of people have put a lot of work into this, ensuring compatibility, coverage etc. Yet to this day, none of them have been merged. Eg https://github.com/enzymejs/enzyme/pull/2564

    Given the amount of time that has passed, and the work the community has put in, something is amiss. It feels like he’s now intentionally avoiding React 17+ support. But why? I don’t understand why someone would ask for help then ignore the help when it comes in. That isn’t much better than the swathe of rude/entitled comments he was getting on the issue before he locked it.

    I ended up migrating to RTL, but this made many of my tests more complicated (especially compared to shallow rendering).

    One way to do this is by writing tests for your React components. Tools like Jest and Enzyme make it easy to test your component's behavior, rendering output, and state changes. By writing tests for your components, you can ensure that they behave as expected and prevent issues before they reach production.

  • Difference Between JEST and Enzyme?
    2 projects | dev.to | 17 Oct 2022
    Enzyme offers two types of API for shallow rendering and full rendering. Both are preferred for different test scenarios and functionalities.
  • Testing with Jest and React Testing Library
    6 projects | dev.to | 18 Sep 2022
    At Visa, I was writing unit tests for a Next.js project using components designed with Chakra UI. That's where React Testing Library came in handy. Unlike other solutions like Enzyme, I did not have to worry about the application snapshot but could instead focus on each UI element, its expected behaviour and the data it would render upon user interactions.
  • Superset: Testing and Enzyme to RTL conversion
    4 projects | dev.to | 31 May 2022
    Superset uses Jest and React Testing Library (RTL) to write unit and integration tests. In the past we used Enzyme, but now that we're currently converting all of our class components to functional components, Enzyme cannot support our testing needs. Since RTL is better for testing functional components, we're converting all of our test files to RTL. This can be quite a learning curve - I've gone through a lot of the process so I'd like to share what I've learned so far.

    I won't go into any more details there. Instead, I want to turn back to testing UI components again, that's the kind of unit testing I claimed to be useless in many cases. In details, we will discuss the concepts of shallow and mounting tests with Enzyme, and also interactional unit testing with Testing Library. Testing Library can be used with many libraries, including React.
