The lightning/toast utility is GA as of Winter '24, but I haven't seen anything on StackExchange or in the docs about how to write tests for components that use it. One you import it into a component and try to run Jest tests, you get an error like this:

Cannot find module 'lightning/toast' from 'force-app/main/default/lwc/myApp/myApp.js'

I'm doing a Q&A-style entry here for posterity. The solution is simple enough if you know about mocking patterns in Jest + LWC, but I'm sure many devs will encounter this error, search Google for it, and end up here.

In keeping with the mocking approach suggested by the Lightning Web Components Tests Trailhead module, here are the steps:

  1. Create this directory in your SFDX repo if it doesn't already exist: force-app/test/jest-mocks/lightning
  2. Add a new file, toast.js, to the above directory. A very basic stub like this should work for most use cases:
export default class Toast {
  static show() {}
  1. Update the jest.config.js file in the root of your repo. Add or update the moduleNameMapper property of module.exports as follows to include a new property, ^lightning/toast$, pointing to the mock's file path:
module.exports = {
  moduleNameMapper: {
    "^lightning/toast$": "<rootDir>/force-app/test/jest-mocks/lightning/toast"

Jest will now use the stub, and it will no longer complain about not being able to find lightning/toast.
