Versioning

From version "jest": "17.0.0" we are using same MAJOR.MINOR as Jest. For "jest": "< 17.0.0" use "ts-jest": "0.1.13". Docs for it see here.

Usage

To use this in your project, run:

npm install --save-dev ts-jest

Modify your project's package.json so that the jest section looks something like:

{
  "jest": {
    "transform": {
      ".(ts|tsx)": "<rootDir>/node_modules/ts-jest/preprocessor.js"
    },
    "testRegex": "(/__tests__/.*|\\.(test|spec))\\.(ts|tsx|js)$",
    "moduleFileExtensions": [
      "ts",
      "tsx",
      "js"
    ]
  }
}

This setup should allow you to write Jest tests in Typescript and be able to locate errors without any additional gymnastics.

By default jest does not provide code coverage remapping for transpiled codes, so if you'd like to have code coverage it needs additional coverage remapping. This can be done via writing custom processing script, or configure testResultsProcessor to use built-in coverage remapping in ts-jest.

{
  "jest": {
    "transform": {
      ".(ts|tsx)": "<rootDir>/node_modules/ts-jest/preprocessor.js"
    },
    "testResultsProcessor": "<rootDir>/node_modules/ts-jest/coverageprocessor.js"
  }
}

Note: If you're experiencing remapping failure with source lookup, it may due to pre-created cache from jest. It can be manually deleted, or execute with --no-cache to not use those.

React Native

There is a few additional steps if you want to use it with React Native.

Install babel-jest and babel-preset-react-native modules.

npm install -D babel-jest babel-preset-react-native

Ensure .babelrc contains:

{
  "presets": ["react-native"]
}

In package.json, inside jest section, the transform should be like this:

"transform"{
  "^.+\\.js$": "<rootDir>/node_modules/babel-jest",
  ".(ts|tsx)": "<rootDir>/node_modules/ts-jest/preprocessor.js"
}

Options

By default this package will try to locate tsconfig.json and use its compiler options for your .ts and .tsx files.

But you are able to override this behaviour and provide another path to your config for TypeScript by using __TS_CONFIG__ option in globals for jest:

{
  "jest": {
    "globals": {
      "__TS_CONFIG__": "my-tsconfig.json"
    }
  }
}

Or even declare options for tsc instead of using separate config, like this:

{
  "jest": {
    "globals": {
      "__TS_CONFIG__": {
        "module": "commonjs",
        "jsx": "react"
      }
    }
  }
}

Note that the module property will be overwritten to commonjs since that is the format Jest expects.

When using Jest with Angular (a.k.a Angular 2) apps you will likely need to parse HTML templates. If you're unable to add html-loader to webpack config (e.g. because you don't want to eject from angular-cli) you can do so by defining __TRANSFORM_HTML__ key in globals for jest.

{
  "jest": {
    "globals": {
      "__TRANSFORM_HTML__": true
    }
  }
}

You'll also need to extend your transform regex with html extension:

{
  "jest": {
    "transform": {
      "^.+\\.(ts|tsx|js|html)$": "<rootDir>/node_modules/ts-jest/preprocessor.js"
    }
  }
}

For all available options see TypeScript docs.

Known limitations for TS compiler options

  • You can't use "target": "ES6" while using node v4 in your test environment;
  • You can't use "jsx": "preserve" for now (see progress of this issue);
  • If you use "baseUrl": "<path_to_your_sources>", you also have to change jest config a little bit:
"jest"{
  "moduleDirectories": ["node_modules", "<path_to_your_sources>"]
}
