Getting started with React and Mocha
JavaScript HTML

It took me half day to setup [almost] empty environment for React app development with testing done using Mocha. I decided to share my findings here so it would remain.

My target

I wanted to create an environment for further React development. The things that I needed to have:

  • source structure, that would be suitable for medium-sized project
  • build scripts, that would do all needed transformations, run tests, show the output of my app
  • Mocha as a test framework of choice

For build scripts I prefer to use gulp.


Download the code and run it:

$npm install

followed by

$npm test

If you are using Visual Studio Code - you can build it using ⇧⌘B (on Mac).

Whole story is in this blog post.
