Code Coverage with Storybook Test Runner — Coverage reports can show you how much of your code is actually executed during testing and allow you to find untested edge cases – something you’ll definitely have as your app picks up more and more possible UI states. Storybook test runner now generates coverage reports to help with this and supports React, Svelte and Vue out of the box.
