Test-Driven Development with React

Short Description

Learn Test-Driven development to build more reliable and maintainable apps.

What you’ll learn

  • Test-Driven Development

This course includes:

  • 1 hour on-demand video
  • Full lifetime access
  • Access on mobile and TV
  • Certificate of completion


  • React basics
  • React unit testing basics


If you already heard of TDD but was wondering how it supposed to work for developing React apps, this course is for you. We will build a few features in a pretend home rental application. I will show you how to write a failing test first (step 1), then make it pass by writing code (step 2), then refactor the code (step 3). These features include:

  • building the app header (easy)
  • fetching the list of rental homes from the API and displaying it on the page (intermediate)
  • building a rental booking dialog (complex)

After completing this course, you will gain the full power of TDD which provides you with:

  • better focus: you end up writing a lot less code because you need just enough to make the test pass, and anything else is a distraction and can be ignored
  • better architecture: you get less tightly coupled code and more cohesive components
  • fewer bugs and simpler maintenance
  • high test coverage: you have more confidence that everything is working
  • documented behavior: the tests describe the intended behavior of the component and document the edge cases
  • it’s easy to pick up after the last context switch: when I return to my code the following day, the next step is always to get the test to pass or write the next one or refactor
