Run tests

We ensure the quality of our frontend code by using

  • ESLint for checking our JavaScript code

  • Jest and Vue Test Utils to unit test our components

  • Storybook to document and manually test our components in an isolated playground

For more information see our frontend testing guide. Use these commands to run the tests:

With Docker
Without Docker
With Docker

After starting the application following the above guidelines, open new terminal windows for each of these commands:

# run eslint
$ docker-compose exec webapp yarn lint
# run unit tests
$ docker-compose exec webapp yarn test
# start storybook
$ docker-compose exec webapp yarn storybook

You can then visit the Storybook playground on http://localhost:3002

Without Docker

After starting the application following the above guidelines, open new terminal windows and navigate to the /webapp directory for each of these commands:

# run eslint in /webapp (use option --fix to normalize the files)
$ yarn lint
# run unit tests in /webapp
$ yarn test
# run locales in /webapp (use option --fix to sort the locales)
$ yarn locales
# start storybook in /webapp
$ yarn storybook

You can then visit the Storybook playground on http://localhost:3002

Styleguide Migration

We are currently in the process of migrating our styleguide components and design tokens from the Nitro Styleguide into the main Human Connection repository and refactoring our components in the process. During this migration, our new components will live in a _new/ folder to separate them from the old, yet untouched components.

Folder Structure

The folder structure we are following is prescribed by Nuxt.js:

  • assets contains icons, images and logos in svg format and all shared SCSS files such as tokens

  • components separated into two sub-folders:

    • generic are the generic building blocks of the app – small, reusable and usually not coupled to state

    • features are composed of components but tied to a particular function of the app (e.g. comment or post)

  • layouts can use components to create layout templates for pages

  • pages are the entry points for all routes in the app and are composed of layouts, features and components
