Importantly, Jest libraries are useful under the following scenarios:
Zero-Configuration Testing - With little setup, Jest provides a testing solution with zero-configuration for projects using npm with adjustable settings.
Mocks and Spies - Jest offers strong support for mocks and spies right out of the box, which allows testing in isolation of individual components.
Snapshot Testing - This is one of Jest's most potent features, offering a simple method to test whether the UI component has changed unexpectedly.
Parallelization of Tests - Jest executes tests parallelly in their processes, maximizing performance with Core utilization, and ensuring a smoother isolation of tests.
Snapshot Testing: This feature enables developers to compare a component's rendered output to a snapshot of its previous render. It makes inspection of component changes much simpler.
Mock Functions: Jest libraries can generate mock functions and spy on function calls, making it easier to test interactions between different parts of your application.
Timer Mocks: Jest can also mock out timers in your code, ensuring that your tests run in a predictable manner regardless of real-world timing.
Global State: Jest creates a new environment for each test file to prevent tests from sharing state through global variables, which can sometimes lead to confusing behavior if not understood properly.
Asynchronous Operations: When testing asynchronous operations, always ensure to return promises or use async/await syntax to inform Jest when the test has ended. Forgetting to do this can lead to flaky tests.
Manual Mocks and HoISTING: When using manual mocks for Node modules, remember that Jest hoists
jest.mock calls to the top of the module. This sometimes causes confusion as it appears the mock is being defined after the import statement.
Snapshot Testing: Though useful, snapshot testing can at times give developers a false sense of security. Always manually review snapshot diffs and treat snapshots as you would live code.
Code Coverage Misinterpretation: While Jest can provide code-coverage metrics, it's important to remember that high code-coverage doesn’t always equate to well-tested code. Pay attention to the types of tests written, not just the coverage percentage.
