Run One Jest Test

When iterating on a test, I want to run just that test. This is a bit tricky with Jest, but it can be done.

First, tell the test framework to run a file, or a describe block:

 # Test file
$ yarn test path/to/test.test.js

# Describe block
$ yarn test -t 'myAssertiveDescribeBlock'

Then, add .only to your it or test block to run just that example:

it.only('is true', () => {
  // your test here

It’s just that easy.
