Spearmint helps developers easily create functional React/Redux/Endpoint/Paint Timing tests without writing any code. It dynamically converts user inputs into executable Jest test code by using DOM query selectors provided by @testing-library.


Please download spearmint from our website. Available for Mac OS and Windows.

How it works

  1. On the initial screen, a user is prompt to login, sign up (via OAuth or standard sign-up/login), or login as a guest. Once logged in choose your file and load your application to start creating tests.

  1. Utilize our auto-complete, drop-down options, and tooltips features to easily create arrangement, action, and assertion test statements for React; reducer, action creator, asynchronous action creator, and middleware test statements for Redux; and hooks, context, and endpoint test statements. Spearmint can save test templates for future use for logged in user (not guests).

  1. Spearmint will then convert user input to dynamically generate a test file, which you can click export icon on the left nav bar to automatically save the test file in the __tests__ folder.

  2. Lastly click Run Test button and follow the guide and click what type of test you would like to perform.

  3. An accessibility lens has been added in the app to give developers with different mismatches various options to interact with the app.

  1. The latest version of Spearmint has a specific focus on security. The Snyk library has been utilized to ensure your application is up to snuff for various security standards and protect your application from malicious attacks. Users can now test their application for vulnerabilities including: SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS), Hardcoded Secrets, and much more!
