Testing & QA
Testing Code Quality - ESLint
ESLint covers both code quality and coding style issues. ESLint statically analyses code to quickly find problems.
ESLint is built into most text editors and one can run ESLint as part of any continuous integration pipeline. Many problems ESLint finds can be automatically fixed. ESLint fixes are syntax-aware to not experience errors introduced by traditional find-and-replace algorithms.
Testing UI Components - Storybook
Testing with Storybook. The simplest testing method is manual. Publish your Storybook or run it locally, then look at every story to verify its appearance and behaviour. This is appropriate for smaller Storybooks. As you add more stories, manual testing becomes infeasible.
Use automated testing to catch bugs and regressions.
A complete Storybook testing strategy combines the following techniques to balance coverage, accuracy, and maintainability.
Automated Application Testing - Puppeteer
Puppeteer is an open-source headless browser supported by Google that provides automated control of a web page in an environment similar to popular web browsers, but they are executed via a command-line interface or using network communication.
Puppeteer is a Node library that provides a high-level API to control headless Chrome or Chromium over the DevTools Protocol.
