Airbnb transferred ownership of Enzyme, its React testing library, to the new enzymejs GitHub organization. Airbnb still plans to continue to use and contribute to Enzyme.
Airbnb decided to put the responsibility for the development of its Enzyme testing library in a community-led enzymejs GitHub organization. Airbnb mentioned that the existence and the support from the community of developers and contributors as a key driver behind the decision:
[The] community is largely the reason why we are excited to announce that we will transfer ownership of Enzyme to the new enzymejs GitHub organization. We believe that this new home will help the project continue to support the community’s needs well into the future. The success here has moved beyond Airbnb as a single org […].
The four-year-old React component testing library has over 340 contributors. Since its inception, Enzyme grew in popularity among developers, as illustrated by key statistics: two-million weekly downloads (growing 8% annually) on npm, 18,000+ GitHub stars, 1,400 packages dependent on Enzyme. Enzyme is additionally used by over 238,000 repositories and 25,000 packages.
While Airbnb mentioned that it uses Enzyme internally in over 17,000 tests, it also revealed that the React Testing Library has been increasingly used within the organization. Nonetheless, Airbnb sees continued usage and contributions to Enzyme in the future.
