sfdx-lwc-jest so that you have the Jest test runner for Lightning Web Components ready.
Explore Your LWC Tests
The LWC Tests sidebar provides a central location for you to run tests on the code you write. You can run one test case, the test cases in one file, or all your tests. You can also view the results of the last tests run and navigate to the corresponding lines of code directly from the tests. To access the test sidebar, click the beaker icon (hover text: Test) in the View bar. If you don’t see this icon, make sure the project you have open in VS Code contains an sfdx-project.json file in its root directory.
To run selected tests, hover over the name of a test case or file to reveal a play icon from the LWC test view. Click the play icon (hover text: SFDX: Run Lightning Web Component Test Case, SFDX: Run Lightning Web Component Test File) to run a test case or all the test cases in a file. To run all of tests in the view, click the larger play icon at the top of the LWC Tests view (hover text: SFDX: Run All Lightning Web Component Tests).
Test results are noted as follows: green for passing tests, red for failing tests, or orange for skipped tests.
To jump to a test file, or a test case, click the test name in the sidebar.
To clear your test results, click the refresh icon at the top of the sidebar (hover text: SFDX: Refresh Lightning Web Component Test Explorer).
