Enabling git hooks on react project

Git hooks are great for running tests before commit or push. After making new file pre-commit (or pre-push) inside .git/hooks/ folder and in it list of tasks. You have to make it executable with chmod +x pre-commit. By default, create-react-app executes test with --watch flag which will hang and prevent hook to finish. Disable it by adding --coverage flag to npm test command.

To run both unit and integration test prior to commit use:


npm test -- --coverage && npm run e2e
[ $RESULT -ne 0 ] && exit 1
exit 0
