Installation

chai-enzyme depends on:

"peerDependencies": {
  "chai": "^3.0.0 || ^4.0.0",
  "cheerio": "0.19.x || 0.20.x || 0.22.x || ^1.0.0-0",
  "enzyme": "^2.7.0 || ^3.0.0",
  "react": "^0.14.0 || ^15.0.0-0 || ^16.0.0-0",
  "react-dom": "^0.14.0 || ^15.0.0-0 || ^16.0.0-0"
}

cheerio is already a dependency of enzyme, so most probably you will not have to install it manually

$ npm install chai-enzyme --save-dev

Setup

import chai from 'chai'
import chaiEnzyme from 'chai-enzyme'

chai.use(chaiEnzyme()) // Note the invocation at the end

Debug output in assertion exceptions

You can also provide a custom debug function that can print useful information about the wrapper that you are using.

The default one that chai-enzyme comes with, will pretty print the HTML of the wrapper under test.

  1) #text (text) (shallow): passes when the actual matches the expected:
     AssertionError: expected <Fixture /> to have text 'Test test', but it has 'Test'

     ---------- this is where the debug output starts ----------

     HTML:

     <span id="child">Test</span>

     ---------- this is where the debug output ends ----------

Here is how you can implement and configure one for yourself:

function myAwesomeDebug (wrapper) {
  let html = wrapper.html()
  // do something cool with the html
  return html
}

chai.use(chaiEnzyme(myAwesomeDebug))

Assertions

It's important to know that all assertions are registered with Chai's overwrite* methods and therefore this plugin can work next to other Chai.js plugins that have similar assertions, such as chai-jquery.

At the beginning of each assertion, we verify if the provided object is a ShallowWrapper, ReactWrapper or a cheerio object and if not we delegate to the next assertion that responds to the given method.

Note that not all assertions work with every rendering strategy.

If you are wondering what rendering mechanism to use when, refer to enzyme's documentation.

checked()

render mount shallow
yes yes yes

Assert that the given wrapper is checked:

import React from 'react'
import {mount, render, shallow} from 'enzyme'

class Fixture extends React.Component {
  render () {
    return (
      <div>
        <input id='checked' defaultChecked />
        <input id='not' defaultChecked={false} />
      </div>
