Before we learn how to test our vue.js components, we need to install a few packages that will be the tools we use.
In this lesson, we'll walk you through the project that we've prepared and show you how to install the required packages before we continue with testing vue.js components.
We have created a boilerplate that contains the components that we will test in this course. Make sure to download or clone it (instructions below) if you want to follow along.
Clone project and Install the dependencies
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/vueschool/testing-vue-components.git cd testing-vue-components yarn # OR npm install
Install vue-template-compiler and vue-jest
yarn add vue-template-compiler vue-jest # OR npm install vue-template-compiler vue-jest
yarn add @vue/test-utils # OR npm install @vue/test-utils
If you're not familiar with Jest, the testing framework, we recommend watching Test with Jest before continuing with this course.
