I would recommend Jest for testing. I have switched from other test frameworks to Jest because it has a lot of things built in. The big one I always setup is istanbul. Jest has this configured automatically by just adding a flag jest --coverage. It has saved me a lot of setup time.

Thanks for sharing! I didn't knew Jest could generate coverage reports out of the box.
I'll include it to the list :)
