How to run your tests

to run the tests:

How to name npm scripts

npm scripts are the primary means of executing programmatic tasks (e.g. tests, linting, releasing, etc) within the repo. to view available scripts, run npm run.

when creating a new script, be sure it does not already exist and use the following naming convention:


our standard categories include: test, lint, build, clean, docs, package, dependencies, and release. top-level scripts - e.g. npm run clean - will typically run all of its subcategories (e.g. npm run clean:dist && npm run clean:tmp).

npm itself includes special handling for test and start (doc: 1, 2) amongst other lifecycle scripts - use these to expose key testing and start-up commands.

sometimes your new script will be very similar to an existing script. in those cases, try to extend the existing script before adding another one.


  • npm scripts form the developer's API for the repo and all of its packages - key orchestration commands should be exposed here
  • document developer-facing process / tooling instructions in the Development section
  • plan to release your changes upon merging to main - refrain from merging if you cannot so you don't leave unpublished changes to others
  • avoid making changes in files unrelated to the work you are doing so you aren't having to publish trivial updates
  • test files live alongside their source files and are named like *.test.js or *.spec.js
  • if the linter does not flag your code (error or warning), it's formatted properly
  • avoid reformatting unflagged code as it can obscure more meaningful changes and increase the chance of merge conflicts
  • todo comments include your last name and are formatted like: TODO (mirande): <message>
