    React Test Wrapper

    The intention of this package is to provide a simple, clean way of setting up your React components for unit tests, to reduce test setup boilerplate code, whilst automatically inferring your component TypeScript definitions (props, instance methods etc) to avoid needing to manually import types and retype definitions in your tests and also providing better inline IDE autocomplete/validation support.

    The classes provided are also able to be extended to add to the API that's available, if your project requires additional functionality as part of your component test setup.

    The concept behind it is that you can create a single instance of the wrapper class at the top of your test file and define the defaults to use there, then in each test scenario you can reference the single instance and define the scenario-specific props/children etc. chaining the public methods, then finally calling the mount, shallow or render method to return the Enzyme wrapper and merged props.

    The scenario-specific definitions are reset each time you call mount, render or shallow, which will ensure it reverts back to only the defaults set at the top and prevents scenario data from leaking between tests.

    For example:

    const component = new Wrapper(SomeComponent)
      .withDefaultChildren(<div className="Child" />)
        prop1: "Default value 1",
        prop2: "Default value 2"
    describe("when testing a scenario", () => {
      const wrapper = component
          prop1: "Scenario value 1"
      it("uses the scenario-specific value for prop1", () => {
        expect(wrapper.find(".SomeComponent--prop1").text()).toBe("Scenario value 1");
      it("uses the default value for prop2", () => {
        expect(wrapper.find(".SomeComponent--prop2").text()).toBe("Default value 1");
