Highlights 🕴

NODE_ENV=test ✨

AVA will now set process.env.NODE_ENV to 'test', as long as the NODE_ENV environment variable has not already been set. 42e7c74

Improved snapshot storage location 🗃

Snapshots are stored alongside your test files. This is great when your test file is executed directly but say if you're using TypeScript to precompile your test file AVA would store the snapshots in your build directory. In this release, if source maps are available, AVA determines the original test file location and uses that to store the snapshots.

You can also specify where snapshots are stored through the snapshotLocation option in the package.json file. 7fadc34

Matching anonymous tests 🕵️

--match='*' now matches all tests, including those without a title. 1df502d
