As I have done a couple of backend testing blogs with RSpec and Ruby on Rails. I have decided to do a couple on frontend testing with Jest. To begin with, I was looking at frontend testing and wasn’t sure whether to start learning Jest or Mocha. I found a great blog explaining them both and would highly recommend reading it as it briefly discusses both of them.

I ended up looking at Jest simply because I felt like I wanted to use something with an easy setup and ready to use virtually straight away. A testing frameworks job is to tell a developer what’s broken as quickly as possible and a quick setup is always handy. Which is exactly what Jest is!

To testing!
