How to Set up a Test Environment in React

Written by: Natasha Osborne

At Radial Development Group, we often choose React for front end views (typically in conjunction with Redux). Since we practice test-driven development, we also set up a test environment.

Here’s an outline of the tools we use and why. Later, we’ll follow up with some in-depth posts on how we use these tools.

When setting up your test environment, you will need at least three things, likely four:

An assertion library allows the test to expect a certain result in a test. We use Chai.

Webpack is a module bundler (any static asset) that is used to bundle and serve the app’s files.

We’ll be updating this post and adding others with more in-depth guides to each of these tools. Stay tuned!
