no export from test file (no-export)

Prevents exports from test files. If a file has at least 1 test in it, then this rule will prevent exports.

Rule Details

This rule aims to eliminate duplicate runs of tests by exporting things from test files. If you import from a test file, then all the tests in that file will be run in each imported instance, so bottom line, don't export from a test, but instead move helper functions into a seperate file when they need to be shared across tests.

Examples of incorrect code for this rule:

export function myHelper() {}

module.exports = function() {};

module.exports = {
  something: 'that should be moved to a non-test file',
};

describe('a test', () => {
  expect(1).toBe(1);
});

Examples of correct code for this rule:

function myHelper() {}

const myThing = {
  something: 'that can live here',
};

describe('a test', () => {
  expect(1).toBe(1);
});

When Not To Use It

Don't use this rule on non-jest test files.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
