How to mock Push notification native module in React native jest tests?

When using the module react-native-push-notification, I had this error:

 FAIL  __tests__/index.android.js
  ● Test suite failed to run

    Invariant Violation: Native module cannot be null.

      at invariant (node_modules/fbjs/lib/invariant.js:44:15)
      at new NativeEventEmitter (node_modules/react-native/Libraries/EventEmitter/NativeEventEmitter.js:32:1)
      at Object.<anonymous> (node_modules/react-native/Libraries/PushNotificationIOS/PushNotificationIOS.js:18:29)
      at Object.get PushNotificationIOS [as PushNotificationIOS] (node_modules/react-native/Libraries/react-native/react-native.js:97:34)
      at Object.<anonymous> (node_modules/react-native-push-notification/component/index.ios.js:10:23)

I tried to mock the module by creating __mocks__/react-native.js and putting this code within it:

const rn = require('react-native')

jest.mock('PushNotificationIOS', () => ({
  addEventListener: jest.fn(),
  requestPermissions: jest.fn(),
  then: jest.fn()
}));

module.exports = rn

Now, I have this error:

 FAIL  __tests__/index.android.js
  ● Test suite failed to run

    TypeError: Cannot read property 'then' of null

      at Object.<anonymous>.Notifications.popInitialNotification (node_modules/react-native-push-notification/index.js:278:42)
      at Object.<anonymous>.Notifications.configure (node_modules/react-native-push-notification/index.js:93:6)
      at Object.<anonymous> (app/utils/localPushNotification.js:4:39)
      at Object.<anonymous> (app/actions/trip.js:5:28)

How I could mock fully this module the right way?

  1. You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I
    feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very large for me.
    I am having a look forward on your next publish, I will attempt to get the hold of
    it! http://ciaalis2u.com/
