    "majestic": {
        // if majestic fails to find the Jest package, you can provide it here. Should be relative to the package.json
        "jestScriptPath": "../node_modules/jest/bin/jest.js",
        // if you want to pass additional arguments to Jest, do it here
        "args": ['--config=./path/to/config/file/jest.config.js'],
        // environment variables to pass to the process
        "env": {
          "CI": "true"

Optional configuration in project with multiple Jest configuration files

    "majestic": {
        "jestScriptPath": "../node_modules/jest/bin/jest.js",
        "configs": {
          "config1": {
            "args": [],
