Running tests using a local open-source backend
Convex recently released an open source version of the backend. We can use this to unit test Convex functions by running them with a local backend. These tests will work by running a backend locally, pushing your code, and using the `ConvexClient` to execute queries and mutations from your favorite testing framework and asserting on the results.

Testing React Components with Convex
Oftentimes during testing we want to mock out our backend so we can unit test our UI components without talking to our actual server code. In this article, we’ll explore options for testing React components that call Convex React hooks using mocking and dependency injection. To do this, I’ve written a sample TypeScript React app using the Vitest testing framework. The patterns presented in this post are also applicable to other JavaScript apps and frameworks.
