Visual UI Testing for React Components, a higher order component library & testing GraphQL container components

Testing the visual aspect of UI components can be a real pain -- often it's a matter of the designer checking to make things are pixel perfect. This manual process is not scalable and error prone. Chromatic is a tool that automates visual QA for the basic UI building blocks: components. I'm excited to try it out in my next project! I've definitely had some frustrating experiences where the visual aspect of an application is sub-par because I've introduced a bug or two 😬

More highlights in this week's newsletter:

  • Learn how to combine D3 & React to create amazing data visualizations
  • Set up a React project that harnesses the power of Typescript
  • Use a higher order component library that solves some frequently needed solutions in React applications

Happy coding (and Happy 4th of July to all you Americans out there! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ)

P.S. This newsletter was in no way sponsored by Chromatic -- I'm just really excited about the tool! πŸ˜€
