quick way to start testing ES6 code with a real browser (using create-react-app and Jasmine)
create-react-app comes with Jest which is awesome, but sometimes you need a real DOM/browser to test with. Here's a quick way to get up and running testing your app.
1. Create a *separate* app for testing, using create-react-app:
create-react-app tests
cd tests
2. Modify the index.html to include the Jasmine spec runner (see index.html below)
3. Modify the index.js to just run your tests rather than bootstrap a React app. (see index.js below)

workaround for angular 1.x component styling
// Angular 1.x components don't let you do a "replace:true", so they're always nested in another HTML tag.
// This nesting makes it so you can't use some really useful css pseudo-classes like ":last-of-type".
// This workaround puts a CSS class on the actual root, so you can take adavantage of these CSS goodies.
export default class Task {
// add class to component root element for easier css styling
// using aphrodite
