React Native Testing Library Explained

The first episode of The React Native Show provides insights into React Native Testing Library. Mike and his guest give a quick glimpse into the very concept of "Testing Library" and tell the story behind "React Native Testing Library."

If you are familiar with any Testing Library started by Kent C. Dodds, you will find it easy to use React Native Testing Library as it's based on the same APIs. React Native Testing Library does not depend on DOM APIs though - we run the tests in a Node.js environment utilizing the React Test Renderer, which renders React components in memory. Learn more about the Library from Michał.

Mike and his guest also address the following questions:

  • What kind of technical differences are between RNTL and the ecosystem? And why so many?
  • What is the current state of the library?
  • What is the future of the React Native Testing Library?

Once you check the episode, find out what's new in React Native Testing Library 2.0 and how to migrate to the new version.
