React Page Objects

React page objects make it easy to test react components.

React gives you some useful utilities for testing React components however they lead to verbose code that clutters your tests.

var TestUtils = require("react/addons").addons.TestUtils;
 
var element = TestUtils.renderIntoDocument(<LoginPage />);
var emailNode = element.email.getDOMNode();
 
expect(emailNode.value).to.equal("foo@bar.com");
 
element.password.getDOMNode().value = "bar@baz.com";
TestUtils.Simulate.change(element.password.getDOMNode(), {
  target: {
    value: "password"
  }
});
 
TestUtils.Simulate.click(element.login.getDOMNode());

React Page Objects hides this complexity by providing a simpler API

var page = new PageObject(<LoginPage />);

expect(page.email.value).to.equal("foo@bar.com");
page.email.value = "bar@baz.com";
page.login.click();

Tutorial

Say you have a login page built in React you want to test

var LoginPage = React.createClass({
  render: function () {
    return (
      <div className="login-page">
        <input ref="email" type="text" value={this.state.email} onChange={this.onEmailChanged} />
        <input ref="password" type="password" value={this.state.password} onChange={this.onPasswordChanged} />
        <input ref="login" value="Login" type="submit" onClick={this.login} />
      </div>
    );
  },
  login: function () {
    AuthService.authenticate(this.state.email, this.state.password);
  },
  onEmailChanged: function (e) {
    this.setState({ email: e.target.value });
  },
  onPasswordChanged: function () {
    this.setState({ password: this.refs.password.getDOMNode().value });
  },
  getInitialState: function () {
    return {
      email: "",
      password: ""
    };
  }
});

To easily reference specific elements within the component, you should add refs to them.

If you then pass an instance of the component into a page object, any refs will be accessible. You can then get the values of the elements and simulate events (e.g. click, select, etc).

var page = new PageObject(<LoginPage />);
 
page.email.value = "foo@bar.com";
page.password.value = "password";
page.login.click();

You can also create a custom type for a page using PageObject#extend

var LoginPageObject = PageObject.extend({
  getComponent: function () {
    return <LoginPage />;
  },
  loginAs: function (email, password) {
    this.email.value = "foo@bar.com";
    this.password.value = "password";
    this.login.click();
  }
});
 
var page = new LoginPageObject();
 
page.loginAs("foo@bar.com", "password");

The elements hash map allows you to specify the page object type of any refs allowing you to build more complex pages. They key in the elements is the name of the ref and the value is the page object type.

var NewsFeedItem = React.createClass({
  render: function () {
    return (
      <div className="news-feed-item">
        <User ref="user" user={this.props.item.user} />
        <h1 ref="title">{this.props.item.title}</h1>
        <div ref="body">{this.props.item.body}</div>
      </div>
    );
  }
});
 
var NewsFeedItemPageObject = PageObject.extend({
  elements: {
    user: PageObject
  },
  getComponent: function (props) {
    return <NewsFeed {...props} />;
  }
});
 
var User = React.createClass({
  render: function () {
    return (
      <div className="user">
        <span ref="name">{this.props.user.name}</span>
      </div>
    );
  }
});
 
var item = new NewsFeedItemPageObject({
  item: {
    user: { name: "Foo Bar" },
    title: "Foo",
    body: "Lorum Ipsum"
  }
});
 
expect(item.title.value).to.equal("Foo");
expect(item.user.name.value).to.equal("Foo Bar");

If you have an array of page objects, you should add a ref to the parent element and then in elements hash the value should be an array containing the page object type.

var NewsFeed = React.createClass({
  render: function () {
    return (
      <div className="news-feed">
        <div className="news-feed-items" ref="items">
          {this.state.items.map(function (item) {
            return <NewsFeedItem key={item.id} item={item} />;
          })}
        </div>
      </div>
    );
  },
  getInitialState: function () {
    return {
      items: NewsFeedService.getNewsFeedItemsFor(this.props.user)
    };
  }
});
 
var NewsFeedPageObject = PageObject.extend({
  elements: {
    items: [NewsFeedItemPageObject]
  },
  getComponent: function (props) {
    return <NewsFeed {...props} />;
  }
});
 
var newsFeed = new NewsFeedPageObject({
  user: "foo"
});
 
expect(newsFeed.items).to.not.be.empty;
expect(newsFeed.items.get(1).user.name.value).to.equal("foo");
