How do I run a single test using Jest?
I have a test 'works with nested children' within the file fix-order-test.js.
Running the below runs all the tests in the file.
How do I run only a single test? The below does not work as it searches for a file of the regex specified.
jest 'works with nested children'
From the command line use the
jest -t 'fix-order-test'
This will only run tests that match the test name pattern you provide. It's in the Jest docs.
Another way is to run tests in watch mode
jest --watch and then press p to filter the tests by typing the test file name or t to run a single test name.
If you have an
it inside of a
describe block, you have to run
jest -t '<describeString> <itString>'
