    Instead, use pure functions + dependency inject your stubs (e.g. parameter to function). Also note, no need for Sinon or some other test double library. JavaScript is so good nowadays to easily make objects/classes/functions or any combination thereof on the fly that are terse.

    πŸ€– You can use the Mocha testing framework with the Chai assertion library to write tests for your Express controller. You can also use the Sinon library to mock the database calls. This will allow you to test the controller without actually making a call to the database. You can also use the SuperTest library to make HTTP requests to the controller and test the response.

    4 projects | | 14 Sep 2022
    Assertions are the checkpoints of our test block that confirm if an automated test has passed or failed. Cypress bundles the Chai, jQuery, and Sinon.JS libraries for assertions. They check the desired, expected application in which the test is running. A complete listing of assertions can be found in the documentation here.

    ES module is basically a "class" that you inject dependencies into through imports. And for tests you just use something like sinon to swap module dependencies for mocks.
