If you'd like to try out Jest with an existing codebase, there are a number of ways to convert to Jest:
- If you are using Jasmine, or a Jasmine like API (for example Mocha), Jest should be mostly compatible and easy to migrate to.
- If you are using Mocha, AVA or Tape, you can automatically migrate with Jest Codemods (see below).
- If you like chai, you can upgrade to Jest and continue using chai. However, we recommend trying out Jest's assertions and their failure messages. Jest Codemods can migrate from chai (see below).
Install Jest Codemods with
npm by running:
npm install -g jest-codemods
To transform your existing tests, navigate to the project containing the tests and run:
