    jest-dev-server

    Starts a server before your Jest tests and tears it down after.

    Why

    jest-puppeteer works great for running tests in Jest using Puppeteer. It's also useful for starting a local development server during the tests without letting Jest hang. This package extracts just the local development server spawning without any ties to Puppeteer.

    Install

    npm install --save-dev jest-dev-server

    Usage

    jest-dev-server exports setup,teardown and getServers functions.

    // global-setup.js
    const { setup: setupDevServer } = require('jest-dev-server')
     
    module.exports = async function globalSetup() {
      await setupDevServer({
        command: `node config/start.js --port=3000`,
        launchTimeout: 50000,
        port: 3000,
      })
      // Your global setup
    }

    It is also possible to specify several servers:

    // global-setup.js
    const { setup: setupDevServer } = require('jest-dev-server')
     
    module.exports = async function globalSetup() {
      await setupDevServer([
        {
          command: 'node server.js',
          port: 4444,
        },
        {
          command: 'node server2.js',
          port: 4445,
        },
      ])
      // Your global setup
    }
    // global-setup.js
    const { setup: setupDevServer, getServers } = require('jest-dev-server')
     
    module.exports = async function globalSetup() {
      await setupDevServer({
        command: `node config/start.js --port=3000`,
        launchTimeout: 50000,
        port: 3000,
      })
      getServers.then(servers => {
        // You can get to the servers and do whatever you want
      })
      // Your global setup
    }
    // global-teardown.js
    const { teardown: teardownDevServer } = require('jest-dev-server')
     
    module.exports = async function globalTeardown() {
      await teardownDevServer()
      // Your global teardown
    }

    Options

    command

    Type: string, required.

    Command to execute to start the port. Directly passed to spawnd.

    module.exports = {
      command: 'npm run start',
    }

    debug

    Type: boolean, default to false.

    Log server output, useful if server is crashing at start.

    module.exports = {
      command: 'npm run start',
      debug: true,
    }

    launchTimeout

    Type: number, default to 5000.

    How many milliseconds to wait for the spawned server to be available before giving up. Defaults to wait-port's default.

    module.exports = {
      command: 'npm run start',
      launchTimeout: 30000,
    }

    Following options are linked to spawnd.

    host

    Type: string, default to localhost.

    Host to wait for activity on before considering the server running. Must be used in conjunction with port.

    module.exports = {
      command: 'npm run start --port 3000',
      host: 'customhost.com',
      port: 3000,
    }

    protocol

    Type: string, default to null.

    To wait for an HTTP endpoint before considering the server running, include http as a protocol. Must be used in conjunction with port.

    module.exports = {
      command: 'npm run start --port 3000',
      protocol: 'http',
      port: 3000,
    }

    port

    Type: number, default to null.

    Port to wait for activity on before considering the server running. If not provided, the server is assumed to immediately be running.

    module.exports = {
      command: 'npm run start --port 3000',
      port: 3000,
    }

    usedPortAction

    Type: string (ask, error, ignore, kill) default to ask.

    It defines the action to take if port is already used:

    • ask: a prompt is shown to decide if you want to kill the process or not
    • error: an errow is thrown
    • ignore: your test are executed, we assume that the server is already started
    • kill: the process is automatically killed without a prompt
    module.exports = {
      command: 'npm run start --port 3000',
      port: 3000,
      usedPortAction: 'kill',
    }

    Troubleshooting

    • If using port makes the terminal to ask for root password although the port is valid and accessible then use usePortAction: 'ignore'.
