I've been looking at example Jest tests here trailheadapps / lwc-recipes but don't see examples of e.g.:

(This Jest Test Patterns and Mock Dependencies documentation is worth a read.)

So I am wondering if there are other publicly accessible repositories with more examples of Jest tests for LWCs? (There is plenty of material on Jest: it is the specific patterns of use of LWC and Jest together that I'm looking for.)

I can find these:-

  1. wire-service-jest-util - A utility so Lightning Web Component unit tests can control the data provisioned with @wire.
  2. lwc directory of lwc-recipes repo - Many recipes have a tests directory with commented jest tests.

  • Thanks Sanket, I already had the second one listed in the question.

Here is a "best guess" at some of these questions that appears to work, but I couldn't figure out how to dispatch a keyboard event that automatically went to the focussed element. Note that await on a non-promise automatically adds a wrapping promise.

it('has keyboard capability', async () => {

    const element = createElement('c-datepicker', { is: Datepicker });
    element.startYear = 2020;
    element.startMonth = 1;
    element.numberOfMonths = 2;

    element.scheduleStart = SCHEDULE_START;
    element.scheduleMinutes = SCHEDULE_MINUTES;
    element.holidayDates = [];
    element.alreadyRequesteds = new Map();
    element.selectionMode = 'dates';


    const tueJan14 = element.shadowRoot.querySelector('td[data-day-number="7317"]');
    await tueJan14.focus();
    await tueJan14.dispatchEvent(new KeyboardEvent('keydown', {'keyCode': ENTER_KEY_CODE}));
        new Date(2020, 0, 14)

    const wedJan15 = element.shadowRoot.querySelector('td[data-day-number="7318"]');
    await wedJan15.focus();
    await wedJan15.dispatchEvent(new KeyboardEvent('keydown', {'keyCode': ENTER_KEY_CODE}));
        new Date(2020, 0, 14),
        new Date(2020, 0, 15)
