Hello everyone,

What diference between Shallow and Mount render when I test a React component?

Shallow only mounts the component and "mocks" the rendered output of it's children. Mount renders the entire component tree. You can print wrapper.debug() to see the difference clearly.
Using shallow your tests run much faster, and are less prone to side effects, so the general rule of thumb is that you should always use Shallow, unless you need Mount.

Just kidding, it's a personal preference. But you can change your theme, font, etc. in your settings.

The more you know. 🌈
