Execution order of Jest/Jasmine test code

Execution order of Jest/Jasmine test code

While tests run in source order, surrounding code does not which can lead to hard to debug issues.

Compare the test file below with the sample output below that and note the order of the log messages.

Key points

  • Any code not inside of it, beforeAll, afterAll, beforeEach or afterEach runs immediately on initialisation.
    • This means code at the end of your file runs before even your before hooks.

Redacting fields in GraphQL with Apollo Server

Demo showing that by specifying a resolver for a scalar property, you can override the value.

This is useful for authorization as it means you can centrally check permissions per field. Your general resolvers can return whole objects without caring about which fields the current user may or may not be allowed to see.

Example TestCafe test suite
View testcafe.test.js
// a very short TestCafe test suite
fixture('Admin user')
test('Create posts journey', t => {
const postTitle = 'Hello testing'
return t
.typeText(ReactSelector('PostCreator FormControl'), postTitle)
.click(ReactSelector('PostCreator Button'))
You can’t perform that action at this time.
