jest-fail-on-console

Utility to make jest tests fail when console.error(), console.warn(), etc. are used

version MIT License PRs Welcome

What problem is this solving?

Jest doesn't fail the tests when there is a console.error. In large codebase, we can end up with the test output overloaded by a lot of errors, warnings, etc.. To prevent this, we want to fail each test that is logging to the console. We also want to conserve a clear output of the original error.

This is what this utility is doing.

Install

yarn add -D jest-fail-on-console

or

npm install -D jest-fail-on-console

How to use

In a file used in the setupFilesAfterEnv option of Jest, add this code:

import failOnConsole from 'jest-fail-on-console'

failOnConsole()

// or with options:
failOnConsole({
  shouldFailOnWarn: false,
})

But I have some expected console errors/warning

If a console.error() is expected, then you should assert for it:

test('should log an error', () => {
  jest.spyOn(console, 'error').mockImplementation()
  // do your logic
  expect(console.error).toHaveBeenCalledWith('your error message')
})

Options

You can pass an object with options to the function:

errorMessage

Use this if you want to override the default error message of this library.

// signature
type errorMessage = (
  methodName: 'assert' | 'debug' | 'error' | 'info' | 'log' | 'warn',
  bold: (string: string) => string
) => string

shouldFailOnAssert

Use this to make a test fail when a console.assert() is logged.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: false

shouldFailOnDebug

Use this to make a test fail when a console.debug() is logged.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: false

shouldFailOnError

Use this to make a test fail when a console.error() is logged.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: true

shouldFailOnInfo

Use this to make a test fail when a console.info() is logged.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: false

shouldFailOnLog

Use this to make a test fail when a console.log() is logged.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: false

shouldFailOnWarn

Use this to make a test fail when a console.warn() is logged.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: true

allowMessage

// signature
type allowMessage = (
  message: string,
  methodName: 'assert' | 'debug' | 'error' | 'info' | 'log' | 'warn',
  context: { group: string; groups: string[] }
) => boolean

This function is called for every console method supported by this utility. If true is returned, the message will show in the console and the test won't fail.

Example:

failOnConsole({
  allowMessage: (errorMessage) => {
    if (/An expected error/.test(errorMessage)) {
      return true
    }
    return false
  },
})

silenceMessage

// signature
type silenceMessage = (
  message: string,
  methodName: 'assert' | 'debug' | 'error' | 'info' | 'log' | 'warn',
  context: { group: string; groups: string[] }
) => boolean

This function is called for every console method supported by this utility. If true is returned, the message will not show in the console and the test won't fail.

Example:

failOnConsole({
  silenceMessage: (errorMessage) => {
    if (/Not implemented: navigation/.test(errorMessage)) {
      return true
    }
    return false
  },
})

skipTest

Use this if you want to ignore checks introduced by this library for specific tests determined by the return of the callback function. Return false if you do not want to skip console checks for the specific test and return true if you would like to skip it.

const ignoreList = [/.*components\/SomeComponent.test.tsx/]
const ignoreNameList = ['some component some test name']

failOnConsole({
  skipTest: ({ testPath, testName }) => {
    for (const pathExp of ignoreList) {
      const result = pathExp.test(testPath)
      if (result) return true
    }

    if (ignoreNameList.includes(testName)) {
      return true
    }

    return false
  },
})

shouldPrintMessage

Use this to print the message immediately when called not awaiting the test to finish. This is useful to show the message if there are other or earlier test failures which will result in the fail on console error to be hidden by jest.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: false
