VS Code & Jest Integration

Every developer or development team wants to have confidence in their feature before publishing it to develop/master branches. To gain this confidence individuals or teams follow the test-driven development paradigm. Single Page App development is no exception to this kind of thinking.

A fully functional and good development editor is the one that provides all kinds of services during the development process to the individual developer and is properly integrated with all the frameworks present in the technical stack…


In the real world, nothing is perfect. Everything has its pros & cons, special features & short-comings, any software on this planet is no different. Every software has its own special and unique features which make it a favorite and trendsetter. Similarly, every software has its own shortcomings which impact their selection.

Introduction
