Package description

What is @jest/core?

The @jest/core package is the core engine of Jest, a popular JavaScript testing framework. It provides the functionality necessary to run tests, including the test runner, test watcher, and the ability to configure and initialize tests. It is designed for developers who need to write and run tests for their JavaScript code, offering a powerful and flexible testing environment.

What are @jest/core's main functionalities?

Running tests

This feature allows you to programmatically run your tests using Jest. You can specify options and projects to run tests on, making it flexible for different testing scenarios.

jest.runCLI(options, projects).then(result => { console.log('Tests completed'); });

Configuring Jest

This feature enables you to read and manipulate Jest's configuration programmatically. It's useful for custom setups or when integrating Jest into other tools.

const { readConfig } = require('@jest/core');
readConfig(argc, argv).then(config => { console.log('Jest config:', config); });

Using the TestWatcher

The TestWatcher API allows you to listen to events related to the test lifecycle, such as when a test starts or finishes. This is useful for implementing custom behaviors or integrations.

const { TestWatcher } = require('@jest/core');
const watcher = new TestWatcher({ isWatchMode: true });
watcher.on('test_start', test => { console.log('Test started:', test.name); });
