vue-test-helpers Build Status

Helpers and syntactic sugars on top of vue-test-utils.

Install

First install the package with yarn or npm:

$ yarn add vue-test-helpers --dev

Also you'll need a peer dependency of vue-test-utils. Install it with:

$ yarn add @vue/test-utils --dev

Then, before your tests (for example in a setup script), import and call the function:

import setupHelpers from 'vue-test-helpers'

setupHelpers()

This will do two things:

  1. By default, make mount and shallowMount (also aliased as shallow) available globally, so you don't need to manually import { mount, shallowMount } from '@vue/test-utils' at the beginning of every test file. If this behavior is not what you want, just call setupHelpers({ registerGlobals: false }) instead.
  2. Add some helpers and syntactic sugars on top of Wrapper to create your test a better experience. See the next section for details.

Available helpers

These helpers are available on Wrapper instances only, since I'm not a fan of WrapperArray which is just a very thin wrapper around an array of Wrapper's. If you are dealing with a WrapperArray, just iterate through its .wrappers collection and run the helpers on each item.

  • .has(selector): alias for .contains(selector)
    expect(wrapper.has('p')).toBe(true)
    expect(wrapper.has('#foo')).toBe(true)
    expect(wrapper.has(childComponent)).toBe(false)
  • .hasAll|containsAll(...selectors): asserts that the wrapper has all provided selectors
    expect(wrapper.hasAll('p', '#foo', childComponent)).toBe(false)
  • .hasAny|containsAny(...selectors): asserts that the wrapper has any of the provided selectors
    expect(wrapper.hasAny('p', '#foo', childComponent)).toBe(true)
  • .hasNone|containsNone(...selectors): asserts that the wrapper has none of the provided selectors
    expect(wrapper.hasNone('p', '#foo', childComponent)).toBe(false)
  • .hasClass|hasClasses(...classes): asserts that the wrapper has the CSS class(es).
    expect(wrapper.find('.foo').hasClass('foo')).toBe(true)
    expect(wrapper.find('.foo.bar').hasClasses('foo', 'bar')).toBe(true)
  • .hasAttribute(name, value): asserts that the wrapper has an attribute name with the value value
    expect(wrapper.find('[foo="bar"]').hasAttribute('foo', 'bar')).toBe(true)
  • .hasProp(name, value): asserts that the wrapper has a prop name with the value value
    expect(wrapper.hasProp('foo', 'bar')).toBe(true)

    Note: hasClass, hasAttribute, and hasProp are actually available in vue-test-utils, but marked as deprecated and will be removed in 1.0.

  • .hasEmitted(name[, value]): asserts that an event name has been emitted, optionally with a value value
    wrapper.vm.$emit('foo', 'bar')
    expect(wrapper.hasEmitted('foo')).toBe(true)
    expect(wrapper.hasEmitted('foo', 'bar')).toBe(true)
  • .id(): gets the id of the contained element
    expect(wrapper.find('#foo').id()).toBe('foo')
  • .click|dblclick|input|submit|focus|blur|change([options]): triggers the click/dblclick/input/submit/focus/blur/change event on the contained element, optionally with an options object. These methods return the wrapper instance, useful for chaining.
    expect(wrapper.click().hasEmitted('clicked')).toBe(true)
    expect(wrapper.click({ button: 1 }).hasEmitted('rightClicked')).toBe(true)
  • .click|dblclick|input|submit|focus|blur|change(selector[, options]): finds the contained element by selector and triggers the click/dblclick/input/submit/focus/blur/change event on it, optionally with an options object. These methods return the wrapper instance, useful for chaining.
    expect(wrapper.click('button').hasEmitted('buttonClicked')).toBe(true)
    expect(wrapper.click('button', { ctrlKey: true }).hasEmitted('buttonCtrlClicked')).toBe(true)
  • .setValue(value): sets the value of the contained (input) element. This method returns the called instance, useful for chaining.
    wrapper.find('input').setValue('foo').change()
  • .getValue(): gets the value of the contained (input) element
    expect(wrapper.find('input').setValue('foo').getValue()).toBe('foo')
  • .value: a proxy for the value of the contained (input) element
    wrapper.find('input').value = 'foo'
    expect(wrapper.find('input').value).toBe('foo')
