snap-shot-compare

Picks best comparison / diff for snapshot value

NPM

Build status semantic-release js-standard-style renovate-app badge

Why

Use this comparator function with snap-shot-core

Install

Requires Node version 6 or above.

npm install --save snap-shot-compare

Use

Compare returns a Folktale.Result object.

const compare = require('snap-shot-compare')
let result
// if values are equal
compare({
  expected: 42,
  value: 100
}).map(console.log)
// prints undefined
 
// if objects are different
compare({
  expected: {foo: 'foo'},
  value: {bar: 'bar'}
}).orElse(console.log)
// result has ANSI characters
// use "strip-ansi" to remove if desired
/*
snapshot difference
{
- foo: "foo"
+ bar: "bar"
}
*/

When showing the diff, - is for the lines removed, + means a line has been added.

Other options

There are a few secondary options that might not be consistent across all comparison modes (open a GitHub issue if an unexpected behavior is found)

compare({
  expected,
  value,
  noColor,  // strips ASCII color from diff message
  json      // returns error result as JSON object
            // with the following properties
            // {message, expected, value}
})

Note: json = true option means noColor = true automatically.

Uses

For longer text fragments, prints "expected" and "actual" values when showing the difference.

Debug

To see verbose logs run with environment variable

DEBUG=snap-shot-compare
