    jest-environment-nock-axios

    Mock all network requests in tests using nock.

    Purpose

    This environment ensures that no unmocked network requests are made (by calling nock's disableNetConnect). It also takes care of some additional setup required to support axios.

    Installation

    Install as usual with npm install -D jest-environment-nock-axios (or the yarn equivalent). Both nock and axios are required as peer dependencies.

    To run a test in this environment set the testEnvironment option.

    Gotchas

    Jest by design doesn't implement the require cache. This means that the nock module configured by the environment is different from the module your tests get. To solve this that instance is injected into the global scope (see the example below).

    Tips

    It's a good idea to verify test that no mocked requests are pending. One way to do that is to run the following code after each test (e.g. using Jest's setupFilesAfterEnv) config option:

    const nock = global.nock; // See the 'Gotcha' section above
     
    afterEach(function () {
        const pendingMocks = nock.pendingMocks();
     
        if (pendingMocks.length > 0) {
            throw new Error(`There are still ${pendingMocks.length} pending mocks: ${pendingMocks.join()}`);
        }
    });

    Example

    /**
     * @jest-environment nock-axios
     */
    import axios from 'axios';
     
    describe('This test', function () {
        const nock = global.nock; // See the 'Gotcha' section above
     
        it('will pass', async function () {
            nock('http://test.invalid')
                .get('/data.json')
                .reply(200, { name: 'Hairy Potter' });
            
            const result = await axios.get('http://test.invalid/data.json');
            expect(result.data).toEqual({ name: 'Hairy Potter' });
        });
     
        it('will fail', async function () {
            // ...because the host is not mocked
            await axios.get('http://news.ycombinator.com');
        });
        
        it('will fail if the above "setupFilesAfterEnv" hook is configured', async function () {
            await nock('http://test.invalid')
                .get('/no-data.json')
                .reply(200, {});
     
            // The mocked endpoint is never requested.
        }); 
    })
