Why

Do you like to write paths in jest.mock() calls? I don't. If you don't like too, then you're in the right place. Probably.

The following input:

    import A from "./a";
    import { B } from "./b";
    import * as C from "./c";

    // this is just placeholder for transformation, will be removed from output
    jest.mockObj(A, C.C1);
    jest.mockFn(B, C.C2);

will be transformed to:

    jest.mock("./a", () => {
        const o = {
            "default": "A"
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        return o;
    });
    jest.mock("./b", () => {
        const o = {
            "B": jest.fn().mockName("B"),
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        return o;
    });
    jest.mock("c", () => {
        const o = {
            "C1": "C1",
            "C2": jest.fn().mockName("C.C2"),
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        Object.defineProperty(o.C2, "name", { value: "C.C2" });
        return o;
    });

    import A from "./a";
    import { B } from "./b";
    import * as C from "c";

You can say you have to write paths in import calls anyway. But you're wrong if you use IDE/editor with autoimporting feature - just start to write symbol name and you'll get the imported path for free.

API

jest.mockObj()

jest.mockObj(...args: any[]);

Creates string mock with default implementation to return identifier name. Very handy to mock react components for ReactTestRenderer:

// comp1.js
import InnerComp from "./inner";
export const Comp = () => <div><InnerComp /></div>;

// comp1.spec.js
import InnerComp from "../inner";
import Comp from "../comp1";

// Easy including with IDE autoimporting
jest.mockObj(InnerComp);

const testRenderer = TestRenderer.create(<Comp />);
expect(testRenderer).toMatchSnapshot(); // <div><InnerComp /></div>

You can pass implementation for module export too:

    import { B1, B2 } from "./b";

    jest.mockObj(B1, "i'm b");
    jest.mockObj(B2, () => "test");

This will be transformed to:

    jest.mock("./b", () => {
        const o = {
            "B1": "i'm b",
            "B2": () => "test",
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        return o;
    });

jest.mockFn()

Note Requires jest 22.0+

jest.mockFn(...args: any[]);

Creates jest.fn() mock calls for specified symbols

    import { B1, B2 } from "./b";

    jest.mockFn(B1, B2);

This will be transformed to:

    jest.mock("./b", () => {
        const o = {
            "B1": jest.fn().mockName("B1"),
            "B2": jest.fn().mockName("B2"),
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        Object.defineProperty(o.B1, "name", { value: "B1" });
        Object.defineProperty(o.B2, "name", { value: "B2" });
        return o;
    });

Partial mocking (experimental)

Given some file:

export function func1() { return "func1"; }
export function func2() { return "func2"; }
export const a = "a";

Want to mock only func1 but leave original behavior for func2/a ? It's possible, put into your babel configuration:

    plugins: [["jest-easy-mock", { requireActual: true }]]

And following test file:

import { func1, func2, a } from "./a";
jest.mockObj(func1, () => "test");

func1(); // test
func2(); // func2
console.log(a); // a

will be transformed to:

    jest.mock("./a", () => {
        const a = require.requireActual("./a");

        const o = {
            ...a,
            func1: () => "test",
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        return o;
    });

You need either spread transform enabled in the babel conf, or node 8.4+

Nesting is being supported for one level deep from module export:

    import A, { A2 } from "./a";
    import * as C from "c";

    jest.mockObj(A.ANest, C.Components.Comp1);
    jest.mockObj(A2.A2Nest, jest.fn().mockReturnValue("someval")); // declarations from the same module will be merged into one module mock

will result to:

    jest.mock("./a", () => {
        const o = {
            "default": {
                "ANest": "ANest"
            },
            "A2": {
                "A2Nest": jest.fn().mockReturnValue("someval");
            }
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        return o;
    });
    jest.mock("c", () => {
        const o = {
            "Components": {
                "Comp1": "Comp1"
            }
        };
        Object.defineProperty(o, "__esModule", { value: true });
        return o;
    });

    import A, { A2 } from "./a";
    import * as C from "c";

For explicit module mocks with jest.mock, jest.doMock, jest.unmock and jest.dontMock the transformation will be ignored:

    import { A } from "a";

    jest.mock("a");
    // the order doesn't matter
    jest.mockObj(A);

will be transformed to:

    import { A } from "a";

    jest.mock("a");

Installation

npm install babel-plugin-jest-easy-mock --save-dev

Add to your .babelrc or in .babelrc.js:

    plugins: ["jest-easy-mock"]

Configuration

Plugin exposes few configuration options:

jestIdentifier - Jest identifier used to create actual mocks

requireActual - Do require.requireActual for partial module mocks

ignoreIdentifiers - List of call expression identifiers to ignore the mocking

identfiers - List of call identifiers configuration to do the mocking

interface IdentifierConfiguration {
    /**
     * Identifier name
     */
    name: string;
    /**
     * Remove identifier from transpilation output
     */
    remove: boolean;
    /**
     * Identifier type. "name" will mock with import name, "mock" will mock with jest.fn()
     */
    type: "name" | "mock",
}

Default config:

{
    jestIdentifier: "jest",
    mockIdentifiers: ["jest.mock", "jest.doMock", "jest.unmock", "jest.dontMock"],
    identifiers: [
        {
            name: "jest.mockObj",
            remove: true,
            type: "name",
        },
        {
            name: "jest.mockFn",
            remove: true,
            type: "mock",
        }
    ],
    requireActual: false,
}

To pass custom conviguration add to your babelrc/baberc.js:

    "plugins": [
        ["jest-easy-mock", {
            "requireActual": true,
            "identifiers": [
                {
                    "name": "a.b.c",
                    "type": "mock",
                    "remove": false
                },
                {
                    "name": "jest.mockObj",
                    "type": "name",
                    "remove": true
                }
            ]
        }]
    ]

Usage with Typescript

Unfortunately TS when compiling to commonjs modules, produces very hard to statically understand structure, so use "module": "es2015" for output and let babel to transform the output with babel-plugin-transform-es2015-modules-commonjs. Altenatively, you can just use babel for all TS transpilation with preset babel-preset-typescript and use TS only for editor/IDE purposes.
