Testing Vue Apps - Unit & E2E
Learn enterprise Vue best practices - unit testing, E2E testing, and continuous deployment
This course is part of the Vue.js Professional plan.
This course teaches the three most important best practices of enterprise Vue development - unit testing, E2E (end-to-end) testing, and continuous deployment.
Module 1 - Automated browser testing with Nightwatch
We'll also learn how to make our tests run automatically through headless Chrome.
Module 2 - Frontend unit testing with Jest and Vue Test Utils
In the second module, we'll learn how to unit test a Vue client app. The key tools we'll use are Jest and Vue Test Utils.
We'll begin this module with an introduction to using Jest as a frontend test runner. Then, we'll create our first component unit tests using Vue Test Utils.
Next we'll learn the most important testing patterns for Vue unit tests and use these to write a frontend test suite.
On the way we'll also learn important testing concepts like mocks, stubs, and spies.
Module 3 - Continuous Deployment of a full-stack Vue app
In the third module, we'll be deploying our app to a Heroku environment using GitLab continuous deployment.
We'll begin with an introduction to GitLab CI, and see how it allows us to create a robust deployment pipeline. We'll then configure GitLabCI to create a build of our app in a cloud-based virtual machine and automatically run our test.
Finally, we'll integrate Heroku into the pipeline so that if our tests pass, our code can get pushed to Heroku and the app will be updated.
