Updating global snapshot files

It works well for things like React components, CLI output, error messages and many others but it doesn't solve all problems.

Jest's goal is to provide many different ways to write effective tests without sacrificing performance or the project's maintainability.

For more information on changing the working Dir parameter, see Creating snapshots in a different location than default virtual machine directory (1002929) configuration file of the Virtual Machine.

The snapshot feature is most useful when you want to preserve the state of the virtual machine so you can return to the same state repeatedly.

If you are using create-react-app, Jest is now included by default. Dodds created a ton of videos on that will help you get started with Jest.

If you are using other test runners, Kenneth Skovhus built an awesome jest-codemods library that will automate the conversion for you. Jest 16 was a true Java Script community effort and the project now has more than 220 contributors.

A snapshot preserves the virtual machine just as it was when you took the snapshot - the state of the data on all the virtual machine's disks and whether the virtual machine was powered on, powered off or suspended.

That means that: To restore a snapshot of an index created in 1.x to 5.x you can restore it to a 2.x cluster and use reindex-from-remote to rebuild the index in a 5.x cluster.Other highlights about snapshot testing: Redux itself now uses Jest and Max Stoiber wrote a tutorial on how to test code written with redux.There is also a great guide on how to write tests for Mob X.To simply save the current state of your virtual machine, then pick up work later with the virtual machine in the same state it was when you stopped, suspend the virtual machine. You can take a snapshot of a virtual machine at any time and revert to that snapshot at any time.You can take a snapshot while a virtual machine is powered on, powered off or suspended.

The most opinionated article that resonated with the Jest team was “Testing with Jest Snapshots: First Impressions”.
