Visual Testing For Component Libraries

Dominic Nguyen (Chroma)

Testing user interfaces has always been tricky. The details of UI are nuanced and subjective. “Does this look right?” Co-opting existing testing solutions like unit, E2E, and snapshot tests tends to be brittle and time-consuming. Visual testing takes a different approach. It focuses the human tester (you) on the exact components in the exact states that require attention. It turns out to be a pragmatic yet precise way to test UI component libraries. This presentation goes over why to consider visual testing in Vue, what tools are needed, and how it fits into your development process.

Nice to meet Vue!

Peter S Kang

Are you new to Vue? Not sure what to expect? I’ll be sharing my experience with my first Vue project and some neat things it can do.

Using TypeScript with a tool like VSCode also gets you a ton additional features to help you write less buggy code.

– reacting to changes.

Unit testing Vue components Why test, what to test, and how to test Vue components

Edd Yerburgh (BBC)

State animations Getting them right

Eduardo San Martin Morote (Freelance)

Aah, animations. Moving things on the screen will either fascinate your users or make them close your app right away. Add no animations and your users will feel sometimes lost. Add too much and they will be disgusted. But, to make it harder, animations by themselves have to be configured just right to have a meaning. Speed, duration and the object being animated have to be set just right. Now, Vue already provides us with two nice components: transition and transition-group that are based on CSS animations. But what about the state? Numerical values that change and you want to animate. During my talk, I will explain what state transitions are, how they differ from CSS transitions, what are they used for and show some practical implementations. We will cover good and bad practices while we delight ourselves with some demos.
