Continuous Integration

The generator is able to provide build definitions for continuous integration.

List of the pipeline technologies currently supported: - Azure DevOps (integrated with KarmaJS for test coverage)

Azure DevOps

The build definition included with your project configures the equivalent of the "Continuous Integration" of the official documentation. Once your yaml definition file is committed and pushed, you will see a "name of your repository - CI" build definition appear under the same team project.

If you want to set up automated deployments of your solution, you can then follow the "Continuous Deployment" section of the official documentation.

Simply select the new build definition and update the paths to match the artifact name.

Upgrading from the KarmaJS infrastructure


You have previously upgraded your project to SPFx 1.8.0, if this is not done already, checkout the dedicated Office 365 CLI command


  1. Run the following commands in your shell. Shell npm un @types/chai-as-promised chai-as-promised karma-junit-reporter -D npm i jest-junit jest @voitanos/jest-preset-spfx-react16 -D rm ./config/karma.conf.js
  2. In package.json add the following node to the root. JSON "jest-junit": { "output": "temp/test/junit/junit.xml", "usePathForSuiteName": "true" }
  3. in package.json add/update the following scripts. JSON "test": "./node_modules/.bin/jest --config ./config/jest.config.json", "test:watch": "./node_modules/.bin/jest --config ./config/jest.config.json --watchAll"
  4. Add a config/jest.config.json file with the following content. JSON { "preset": "@voitanos/jest-preset-spfx-react16", "rootDir": "../src", "coverageReporters": [ "text", "json", "lcov", "text-summary", "cobertura" ], "reporters": [ "default", "jest-junit" ] }
  5. In gulpfile.js remove the following lines JS var buildConfig = build.getConfig(); var karmaTaskCandidates = buildConfig.uniqueTasks.filter((t) => === 'karma'); if(karmaTaskCandidates && karmaTaskCandidates.length > 0) { var karmaTask = karmaTaskCandidates[0]; karmaTask.taskConfig.configPath = './config/karma.config.js'; }
  6. Rename your .test.ts files in .spec.ts and migrate the code like the following example.
  7. Update your azure-pipelines.yml to match the following sample.
