The next iteration of Vue Test Utils. It targets Vue 3.

Installation and Usage

  • yarn: yarn add @vue/test-utils@next --dev
  • npm: npm install @vue/test-utils@next --save-dev

Coming from Vue 2 + Vue Test Utils beta?

We are working on some documentation to help people migrate. At this point it will you will have better luck trying this out with a brand new Vue 3 app, as opposed to upgrading an existing Vue 2 app. Feedback and bug reports are welcome!

Working with .vue files

There is vue-jest for loading .vue files into Jest. The next branch contains support for Vue 3. Install it with yarn add vue-jest@next. It lacks support for some things, namely JSX.

If you don't want to configure things, you can download a repository with Vue 3, @vue/test-utils@next, vue-jest@next and TypeScript configured here.


Docs are located in this repo. Read them here. They are in a separate repository because running Vuepress alongside a repo with Vue 3 causes conflicts - Vuepress expects to be running against Vue 2. This seems like the most simple solution for now.


It's a pretty small codebase at the moment. Get started by running yarn install. You can run the tests with yarn test. That's it!

There is a lot of work to do. See issues for some basic TODOs, or the table at the bottom of this page.

What works?

See the docs. Most basic DOM interactions work. Advanced features like shallowMount and stubs are a work in progress.


This is still very much alpha - if you want to add a feature, have a hack or ping someone in Discord to chat, or check out the issues and project board.
