DOM Testing library: tests resembling user interaction
Testing React components usually end up in rendering an isolated DOM tree and picking up rendered elements using regular CSS selectors. DOM Testing library tries to put more emphasis on how the end-user interacts with the page and gives us tools to express it through code. Like every abstraction, it comes with a certain cost. In my talk, I will explain why it's worth the effort and describe how tests that are closer to how the software is used are giving developers a better confirmation that their code is correct.
