redux-button-masher-example

Supporting code for my blog post on TDD'ing Redux Middleware

To run the tests, clone the project and run npm install; once the dependencies have been resolved run npm test. You can run the app in a browser and click the buttons via npm start.

Project Structure

Tests can be found next to their implementation counterpart with the classic mocha extension .spec.js - this makes it easier to find the tests and spot naming inconsistencies when refactoring.

JSX is intermingled javascript in .js files; Babel takes care of transpiling automatically so I see little benefit from using the .jsx file extension.

Dev Tools

Below is a quick explanation of each dev-dependency and why it was chosen:

  • babel-plugin-transform-object-rest-spread - Permits the use of the object-spread operator ({ ...foo })
  • babel-preset-es2015 - Configures babel to transform ES6 -> ES5.
  • babel-preset-react - Configures babel to transform JSX
  • browserify & babelify - Transform ES6 modules into ES5 code for use in the browser, also see webpack.
  • chai - Defacto assertion library for use with mocha
  • eslint - Statical analysis for bugs, error prone patterns and stylistic nits.
  • eslint-plugin-import - Detect problems with import statements.
  • esling-plugin-react - Detect problems with React and enforce style.
  • mocha - Test framework for NodeJS and the browser
  • mocha-phantomjs - Run mocha tests in PhantomJS from the command line.
  • react-addons-test-utils - Helpers for unit-testing React components, also see enzyme
  • sinon - Test spies (function which record invocation)

I have chosen to run the tests through mocha-phantomjs to provide a seamless browser-debugging workflow (simply open test-runner.html in your browser after npm test completes).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
