Enzyme vs Visual Studio Code: What are the differences?

Developers describe Enzyme as "JavaScript Testing utilities for React, by Airbnb". Enzyme is a JavaScript Testing utility for React that makes it easier to assert, manipulate, and traverse your React Components' output. On the other hand, Visual Studio Code is detailed as "Build and debug modern web and cloud applications, by Microsoft". Build and debug modern web and cloud applications. Code is free and available on your favorite platform - Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows.

Enzyme can be classified as a tool in the "Javascript Testing Framework" category, while Visual Studio Code is grouped under "Text Editor".

Enzyme and Visual Studio Code are both open source tools. It seems that Visual Studio Code with 78.4K GitHub stars and 10.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Enzyme with 17.4K GitHub stars and 1.91K GitHub forks.

      react-testing-library
      It is a simple and complete React DOM testing utility that encourage good testing practices. It provides light utility functions on top of react-dom and react-dom/test-utils, in a way that encourages better testing practices.
      Mocha
      Mocha is a feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on node.js and the browser, making asynchronous testing simple and fun. Mocha tests run serially, allowing for flexible and accurate reporting, while mapping uncaught exceptions to the correct test cases.
      Jest
      Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
      Jasmine
      Jasmine is a Behavior Driven Development testing framework for JavaScript. It does not rely on browsers, DOM, or any JavaScript framework. Thus it's suited for websites, Node.js projects, or anywhere that JavaScript can run.
      Cypress
      Cypress is a front end automated testing application created for the modern web. Cypress is built on a new architecture and runs in the same run-loop as the application being tested. As a result Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Cypress works on any front-end framework or website.

      Visual Studio Code

      Before switching to Visual Studio Code, I used Atom. In contrast to Atom, Visual Studio Code is faster, provides more built-in features, and fails less often.

      I started using Visual Studio Code because Atom was oftentimes extremely slow on even basic tasks, and there were bugs that could freeze the entire window if you dragged something the wrong way. Atom also didn't have as many integrated features as Visual Studio Code, so I had to find all of the best extensions. Even with the right tools available, many language extensions were frequently buggy, ineffective, and slow.

      I use Visual Studio Code because it is great out of the box, it has an integrated terminal, and support for quite a few languages. As a developer who works with TypeScript, their tooling is amazing in the VSCode Marketplace. The best part about VSCode is that can be as lightweight or as decked out as you want it to be. Even though a lot of other IDE's are Electron apps just like VSCode I find that VSCode boots up the fastest. I've tried other IDE's and I always find myself coming back to VSCode.

      Both are very good! But I started with Visual Studio Code when I started to work with AngularJS 4. I tried to use Atom too, but at that time Atom did not have good Angular plugins, in the other side VS Code has nice plugins for Angular. I do not know how is Atom now a days about this, but I think that it must have evolved.

      Have been a Visual Studio Code user since just after launch to the general public, having used the likes of Eclipse and Atom previously. Was amazed how mature it seemed off the bat and was super intrigued by the bootstrapped nature of it having been written/based on Electron/TypeScript, and of course being an open-source app from Microsoft. The features, plugin ecosystem and release frequency are very impressive. I do dev work on both Mac and Windows and don't use anything else now as far as IDEs go.

      More than year ago I was looking for the best editor of Angular 2 application and I've tried Visual Studio Code and Atom. Atom had performance issues that put me off completely to use it again. Visual Studio Code became my main editor #Typescript files (and partly editor of #Java files). I'm happy with Visual Studio Code and I've never look back on Atom. There wasn't any reason to try Atom again, because Visual Studio Code fulfills my requirements very well. I use it for editing of TypeScript, #HTML, #Sass, JSON, Docker and Markdown.

      Visual Studio Code became available around the time my Atom editor started frustrating with hitching and slowdowns. It was likely some plugin I had installed, but a similar setup in Visual Studio Code ran just fine.

      Since then they've made massive improvements, and turned it into an excellent IDE overall. I use only a fraction of its functionality, but unless you use some very obscure language, you're likely to find support for it.

      Even out of the box it already supports much of what I need, and it now even recommends suitable plugins in many situations.

      A few months ago, I decided I would try Visual Studio Code. I resisted for so long because I knew I would love it and would then have to find alternative extensions for the ones I have installed in Atom. Fast forward to today and I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

      I use Atom because it's been around long enough to have plugins for everything. It is very unlikely that there isn鈥檛 a plugin for your favorite language. It鈥檚 super easy to install plugins and packages (or to write your own!). The editor defaults are great: it鈥檚 the best default setup I鈥檝e ever seen for a text editor. One can download this thing and get working immediately.

      At the end of the day, most modern text editors are great. I do love Visual Studio Code as well! I often find myself switching between the two for no other reason other than just because.

      I use Visual Studio Code because it's better than Emacs. For the past ~2 years I've been working with a language called 'CM' created by a company called CET. This language is around 15 years old and looks a lot like C#. VSCode was the obvious choice for me having come from a Visual Studio (VB.NET C#.NET) background as with the CM Extension I didn't need to learn and/or remember ANY of the Emacs shortcuts. This tool has proven so popular that amongst my fellow 'CM' developers, there are now over 900 downloads of the extension (around 10 of those at least being from my own systems/reinstalls etc.)

      I use Visual Studio Code because its fast, and has lot of extensions that makes development with many languages, frameworks and cloud services very easy. Also love the shortcut keys and the ability to customize the behavior of the IDE in lots of different ways. Another aspect of it thats nice is that it's very transparent. It allows us to see every piece of code, config etc. without automatically generating or hiding parts of it behind some GUI. So we will be exposed to every aspect of the development giving us better confidence and understanding of how the build, debugging, packaging, testing, publishing etc. works exactly.

      We use Visual Studio Code because it allows us to easily and quickly integrate with Git, much like Sublime Merge ,but it is integrated into the IDE. Another cool part about VS Code is the ability collaborate with each other with Visual Studio Live Share which allows our whole team to get more done together. It brings the convenience of the Google Suite to programming, offering something that works more smoothly than anything found on Atom or Sublime Text

      I have chosen Visual Studio Code after testing a lot of other editors like Atom, Sublime Text (with legal license), Vim or even Notepad++ because it is the sum of all their virtues and none of their defects. It's fast, it has all the tools and plugins I need to work, and it's pretty and very good optimized. It has what I need to work and nothing more. And the main plugins works like a charm. Developing for React or Flutter is amazing. Even the TypeScript plugin works great. I like how IntelliSense works, and all the extra tools to code remotely using #ssh, access #RESTfulAPI or event manage projects or collaborating remotely. Thanks #Microsoft for Visual Studio Code.

      I really enjoy using Jest as my testing framework. I also use Enzyme to complement, and both together are amazing. Jest is fast and easy to use, It has all you need together under the same tool, and it's pretty easy to create all kind of test, even asynchronous ones. I was responsible for implant it in our company projects, and it was the best decision for testing.

      At labinator.com, we use HTML5, CSS 3, Sass, Vanilla.JS and PHP when building our premium WordPress themes and plugins. When writing our codes, we use Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code depending on the project. We run Manjaro and Debian operating systems in our office. Manjaro is a great desktop operating system for all range of tasks while Debian is a solid choice for servers.

      WordPress became a very popular choice when it comes to content management systems and building websites. It is easy to learn and has a great community behind it. The high number of plugins as well that are available for WordPress allows any user to customize it depending on his/her needs.

      For development, HTML5 with Sass is our go-to choice when building our themes.

      Main Advantages Of Sass:

      • It's CSS syntax friendly
      • It offers variables
      • It uses a nested syntax
      • It includes mixins
      • Great community and online support.
      • Great documentation that is easy to read and follow.

      As for PHP, we always thrive to use PHP 7.3+. After the introduction of PHP 7, the WordPress development process became more stable and reliable than before. If you a developer considering PHP 7.3+ for your project, it would be good to note the following benefits.

      The Benefits Of Using PHP:

      • Open Source.
      • Highly Extendible.
      • Easy to learn and read.
      • Platform independent.
      • Compatible with APACHE.
      • Low development and maintenance cost.
      • Great community and support.
      • Detailed documentation that has everything you need!

      Why PHP 7.3+?

      • Flexible Heredoc & Nowdoc Syntaxes - Two key methods for defining strings within PHP. They also became easier to read and more reliable.
      • A good boost in performance speed which is extremely important when it comes to WordPress development.

      Visual Studio Code takes writing code to the next level.

      There is a great community out there, it is open source, it is lightning fast, and it just works out of the box.

      It has a TON of useful extensions that can make the software do just about anything that you can imagine. It has GIT support directly within the software that doesn't require any extra plugins or configuration.

      I love how responsive VS Code is, and the out-of-the-box intelligent code completion it provides for many JavaScript libraries and frameworks has been a great boost to my productivity. We also have it to thank for pioneering the language server protocol, which allows the development of code intelligence tools for any editor or IDE.

      Performant, flexible editor/IDE. My main programming languages (JavaScript, TypeScript and C#) have good support in it. Another language I plan to use more in the future, Go, has okay support right now which is improving.

      Also, as a developer who prefers using Linux as a workstation OS, I appreciate it being cross-platform.
