Discussion on: TDD Practicality

I wish this question was split between the backend and the front-end. As a fullstack developer with a focus on backend, I've seen how TDD has greatly improved the quality of our backend API.

But on the front-end (vuejs) we're still developing the interfaces with only manual testing by the developers and by testers. Granted, most of our interface is composed out of simple tables, forms and buttons.
Isn't it much more time consuming to mock the response of the API to test the front-end? We just develop the front-end (no TDD) and the backend (TDD), then hook them up together in a short meeting between the backend and front-end devs.
