Test utilities

Aesthetic provides a few utilities for testing rendered styles in a streamlined way, all of which can be imported from the @aesthetic/style/test module.

The most important utility is the purgeStyles() function, which should be called after each test so that document CSS is reset. If not called, you may see unexpected results, where the CSS from different tests will bleed into each other.

import { purgeStyles } from '@aesthetic/style/test';
afterEach(() => {

The other useful utility is getRenderedStyles(), which returns the rendered CSS as a string. Useful for snapshots and visual comparisons. This function requires a type (global, conditions, or standard) to determine which <style /> element to read CSS from.

import { getRenderedStyles } from '@aesthetic/style/test';
it('renders a component', () => {
render(<Example />);
