For better or worse Angular comes with a very opinionated set of tools. Fortunately just like an opinionated partner you can kick them to the curb them and move on! We’ll start by discussing how good tests look for an Angular front end. What sort of tests we can write, and how those look with the default tooling. After trying out the Karma setup that ships in the Angular box we’ll discuss some drawbacks of this setup.
Once we’ve explored testing in Angular, we’ll then discuss leaving those tools for Jest. We’ll discuss what Jest is, as well as our motivation for breaking from the norm.
