Jest Website Upgrade

· 2 min read
Sébastien Lorber

We are excited to present the new Jest website!

The Jest site was upgraded from Docusaurus 1 to Docusaurus 2, and is an early adopter of the newly released Docusaurus 2 i18n support.

So, what's new exactly?

What's new?

Here's a good overview of the most visible improvements:

  • Dark Mode: change the color scheme through the navbar switch.

  • Modern navigation: we improved the navigation experience with client-side routing and prefetching.

  • Versions dropdown: it is now simpler to switch from one Jest version to another.

  • Progressive-Web-App: you can install the Jest website and browse it offline.

  • Search: try the new Algolia DocSearch v3 user-experience. It is now possible to search in blog posts.

  • I18n: Jest is the first website using the new i18n feature of Docusaurus 2. It is now possible to translate blog posts.

  • MDX: embedding React components in Markdown will allow maintainers to make the documentation more interactive.

For site translators

If you want to help to translate the new Jest website, please use the new Crowdin project jest-v2 instead of the previous one.


In localized pages, the edit button now links directly to Crowdin.
