Testing Node.js. How?

TBH I don't like writing test. But as the project grows changing one line of code can break your app if you don't know which part your app was dependent on that deleted line.

Different devs choose different tools for testing, which is sometime confusing.

So, what you choose for testing your Node.js apps?

Same here. I'm currently writing a series of posts introducing how to write unit tests with tape (shameless self-promotion).

I use Jest on a lot of my projects, it is simple to setup, intuitive, easy to use and maintained by facebook.
