Solid Testing Library on GitHub

Inspired completely by preact-testing-library

npm install --save-dev @solidjs/testing-library

This library is built on top of DOM Testing Library which is where most of the logic behind the queries is.

The Problem

You want to write tests for your Solid components so that they avoid including implementation details, and are maintainable in the long run.

This Solution

The Solid Testing Library is a very lightweight solution for testing Solid components. Its primary guiding principle is:

The more your tests resemble the way your software is used, the more confidence they can give you.

See the Dom introduction and React introduction for a more in-depth explanation.

What this library is not:

  1. A test runner or framework.
  2. Specific to a testing framework.

If you using Jest we recommend using solid-jest to properly resolve the browser version of Solid as Jest will default to the server version when run in Node.

💡 If you are using Jest or vitest, you may also be interested in installing @testing-library/jest-dom so you can use the custom jest matchers.
