What’s Up With Vitest?

Scott and Wes discuss Vitest, a new fast and modern JavaScript test runner that aims to replace Jest. They cover Vitest's features like built-in TypeScript support, compatibility with Jest, mocking, filtering, snapshots, code coverage, DOM mocking, in-file testing, and easy setup.


In this Hasty Treat, Scott and Wes talk about Vitest, how testing is handled, how code coverage works, and whether they think they'll use it.
