Interactors not only make writing tests easier, it can also help you develop UI components. With the upcoming release of Component Story Format 3.0, you will be able to use Interactors in Storybook.

This requires no additional setup. Just install @interactors/html to your project, and then you can use interactors in your stories immediately.

In the same way Interactors make tests more reliable and easier to read, it will also enhance your developer experience with Storybook.

Here is an example of how you would normally write a story:

import { screen } from '@testing-library/dom';
import userEvent from '@testing-library/user-event';

export const FormSignIn = {
play: async () => {
await userEvent.type(screen.getById('email'), '');
await userEvent.type(screen.getById('password'), 'donuts123');
await'Sign In'));

And this is the same story but written with interactors:

import { Button, TextField } from '@interactors/html';

export const FormSignIn = {
play: async () => {
await TextField('Email').fillIn('');
await TextField('Password').fillIn('donuts123');
await Button('Sign In').click();

So go on over to the next page where we will share with you some of the notable existing interactors written for other projects and libraries.
