    This is a part of the article: Testing Angular faster with Jest.

    Getting Started

    These instructions will get you setup to use jest-preset-angular in your project. For more detailed documentation, please check online documentation.

    Install using yarn:

    yarn add -D jest jest-preset-angular @types/jest

    Or npm:

    npm install -D jest jest-preset-angular @types/jest


    In your project root, create setup-jest.ts file with following contents:

    import 'jest-preset-angular/setup-jest';

    Add the following section:

    • to your root jest.config.js
    // jest.config.js
    module.exports = {
      preset: 'jest-preset-angular',
      setupFilesAfterEnv: ['<rootDir>/setup-jest.ts'],
      globalSetup: 'jest-preset-angular/global-setup',
    • or to your root package.json
      "jest": {
        "preset": "jest-preset-angular",
        "setupFilesAfterEnv": ["<rootDir>/setup-jest.ts"],
        "globalSetup": "jest-preset-angular/global-setup"

    Adjust your tsconfig.spec.json to be:

      "extends": "./tsconfig.json",
      "compilerOptions": {
        "outDir": "./out-tsc/spec",
        "module": "CommonJs",
        "types": ["jest"]
      "include": ["src/**/*.spec.ts", "src/**/*.d.ts"]
