The different types of testing frameworks have made many individuals confused in the long run. It is quite natural since you’ll find it quite challenging to choose the ideal one for you with so many different frameworks in front of you.
An integrated framework is provided by Jest, which does not need any experience when it comes to the configuration. This tool is all set to use, and it would be possible to set it up instantaneously by running the command-
npm install –save-dev jest
Your requirement will figure out whether it will be better to use Jasmine or Jest for your project. In case the project needs debugging the test cases in an IDE that is not supported by Jest, then your best choice would be Jasmine. However, it will be advisable to try out Jest, given that Facebook has been making lots of investments at present on this framework. Moreover, the React developers are also getting a positive experience after using Jest.
Run the subsequent command for global installation:
npm i –global mocha.
It is a fact that the time needed for setting up and configuring this framework has made it somewhat less popular at present. Companies that have been using Jest recently are satisfied with it. Testing becomes much faster while using Jest, and not much configuration is required. Even though Mocha can boast of having a vast ecosystem, it is quite complicated as well.
This framework supports-
Jasmine will be the best choice in case your project is quite big and has to be integrated with external libraries. This is mainly because of the bigger user base of this framework. However, Jest will be ideal for you if the project is small and you are making use of React JS. This is mainly because of the increasing popularity of Jest at present.
