React Native Owl

Visual Regression Testing for React Native

describe('App.tsx', () => {
it('presses a button & takes a screenshot', async () => {
await press('button');

const screen = await takeScreenshot('homescreen');



This visual regression testing for React Native library enables developers to introduce visual regression tests to their apps for iOS and Android. Being heavily inspired by Detox, an end-to-end testing and automation framework, this library uses a similar API that makes setting up react-native-owl and running the tests locally and on your preferred CI service, seamless.

Learn more about the background behind this library in the announcement on the Formidable Blog.
