noMisplacedAssertion (since v1.6.4)

Diagnostic Category: lint/nursery/noMisplacedAssertion

Sources:

Checks that the assertion function, for example expect, is placed inside an it() function call.

Placing (and using) the expect assertion function can result in unexpected behaviors when executing your testing suite.

The rule will check for the following assertion calls:

  • expect
  • assert
  • assertEquals

If the assertion function is imported, the rule will check if they are imported from:

  • "chai"
  • "node:assert"
  • "node:assert/strict"
  • "bun:test"
  • "vitest"
  • Deno assertion module URL

Check the options if you need to change the defaults.

expect()
