Jest testing utilities for emotion

Installation

npm install --save-dev jest-emotion

Snapshot Serializer

The easiest way to test React components with emotion is with the snapshot serializer. You can register the serializer via the snapshotSerializers configuration property in your jest configuration like so:

// jest.config.js
module.exports = {
  // ... other config
  snapshotSerializers: ['jest-emotion']
}

Or you can customize the serializer via the createSerializer method like so: (the example below is with react-test-renderer but jest-emotion also works with enzyme and react-testing-library)

import React from 'react'
import renderer from 'react-test-renderer'
import serializer from 'jest-emotion'
import styled from '@emotion/styled'

expect.addSnapshotSerializer(serializer)

test('renders with correct styles', () => {
  const H1 = styled.h1`
    float: left;
  `

  const tree = renderer.create(<H1>hello world</H1>).toJSON()

  expect(tree).toMatchSnapshot()
})

Refer to the testing doc for more information about snapshot testing with emotion.

Options

classNameReplacer

jest-emotion’s snapshot serializer replaces the hashes in class names with an index so that things like whitespace changes won’t break snapshots. It optionally accepts a custom class name replacer, it defaults to the below.

function classNameReplacer(className, index) {
  return `emotion-${index}`
}
import { createSerializer } from 'jest-emotion'

expect.addSnapshotSerializer(
  createSerializer({
    classNameReplacer(className, index) {
      return `my-new-class-name-${index}`
    }
  })
)

DOMElements

jest-emotion’s snapshot serializer inserts styles and replaces class names in both React and DOM elements. If you would like to disable this behavior for DOM elements, you can do so by passing { DOMElements: false }. For example:

import { createSerializer } from 'jest-emotion'

// configures jest-emotion to ignore DOM elements
expect.addSnapshotSerializer(createSerializer({ DOMElements: false }))

Custom matchers

toHaveStyleRule

To make more explicit assertions when testing your styled components you can use the toHaveStyleRule matcher.

import React from 'react'
import renderer from 'react-test-renderer'
import { matchers } from 'jest-emotion'
import styled from '@emotion/styled'

// Add the custom matchers provided by 'jest-emotion'
expect.extend(matchers)

test('renders with correct styles', () => {
  const H1 = styled.h1`
    float: left;
  `

  const tree = renderer.create(<H1>hello world</H1>).toJSON()

  expect(tree).toHaveStyleRule('float', 'left')
  expect(tree).not.toHaveStyleRule('color', 'hotpink')
})
