What are the advantages of Jest over Jasmine?

There are couple of advantages compared to Jasmine:

  • Automatically finds tests to execute in your source code.
  • Automatically mocks dependencies when running your tests.
  • Allows you to test asynchronous code synchronously.
  • Runs your tests with a fake DOM implementation (via jsdom) so that your tests can be run on the command line.
  • Runs tests in parallel processes so that they finish sooner.
