Great question!

Originally, this article was called "Isolated Vue component TDD with Jest and Storybook", and I think it may have lost context when I removed the word "Isolated".

It is true that you can build components with TDD with just Jest and Vue Test Utils without Storybook, but I added it to this article as an introduction to building/documenting your components in an isolated environment as you move through the TDD process.

For instance, if you had a component that had a bunch of different states based on more props than just a simple button would have, it would be useful to go through a TDD round when updating a component and then update your Storybook stories to reflect everything you test for.
