This episode of the React Native Show delves into the recent introduction of End-to-End (E2E) testing in RNTester. Join us as we unpack the thought process, technical considerations, and practical implementation of this new approach to testing in React Native.

React Native E2E insights

In conversation with Mateusz Ulańczyk and Szymon Rybczak, the people directly involved in making this solution a reality, we'll cover:

  • the context and need for improvement in testing within the React Native ecosystem
  • the goal and expected outcomes of introducing E2E testing
  • the technical stack behind RNTester-E2E, including Appium and WebDriverIO
  • the workflow of RNTester-E2E in practice and how it operates on every PR
  • future plans for RNTester-E2E, including community involvement, device farm integration, and screenshot testing

This episode will give you a candid look at how E2E tests in RNTester can help reduce regressions, speed up releases, and ultimately lead to a more robust codebase. Tune in and enjoy a more stable codebase and more pleasant work!
