After checking out AVA and tape, it’s time to check out Jest. Jest is a testing framework developed by Facebook, and is often used to test React applications. However, it isn’t limited to just React, so let’s explore the features it has by testing a small Node.js application!
👋 Hey there,I'm Dimitri
I like trying out new frameworks and writing about them. Below you can find the latest articles I wrote.
Last time, I tested a simple Node.js application I wrote with AVA. While my initial experience with AVA was great, it’s probably still worth it to compare it with other testing frameworks. Another testing framework I seem to hear a lot about is tape. One of the main advantages of tape is that it produces […]
A while ago, I wrote a simple GraphQL API using Node.js, Express.js, Apollo and Mongoose. While the API probably works, we didn’t really invest any time to write some unit tests for it. That’s going to change now. There are many testing frameworks and test runners out there, but in this tutorial I’ll be checking […]
A while back, I wrote a tutorial about creating a GraphQL API using Java, followed by a web application using Angular and Apollo. Back then, I also mentioned that Apollo has a server-side part as well, which allows you to create GraphQL API’s on Node.js. And today, we’re going to explore that option!
In the previous tutorial I finished the configuration of the application so that in this tutorial we can concentrate ourself on the Model-View-Controller part of the application. The application consists of two parts, the server- and the client-side part of the application. Both of them use the Model-View-Controller pattern though. First of all, let’s start by […]
In an earlier article/tutorial series I told you how you could create your own application using AngularJS and the HTML Local storage to persist the data. If you missed it, be sure to check it out here. The local storage is great but what if we want to persist the data somewhere inside a database […]
Ondertussen heb ik al enkele tutorials geschreven over Node.js, Dojo Toolkit en Node.js als back-end + Dojo toolkit als front-end. In deze tutorial ga ik Dojo toolkit gebruiken als hulpmiddel bovenop Node.js waardoor ik de Dojo AMD style kan gebruiken in Node.js scripts.
