Testing With Cypress, the Javascript End-to-End Testing Framework

November 22, 2019 at 07:00 PM

Cypress is a new testing library that lets you write reusable, script-able, tests in JavaScript and it allows you to test any front-end application regardless of which framework it was built with.

Whether you’re writing in Angular, React, Vue, or vanilla HTML/JavaScript, you can use Cypress to test your applications.

Cypress code is very similar to BDD tests written in other testing libraries so the learning curve is pretty low. Additionally it will save screen shots of the UI before and after different actions have taken place, and allows you to save all of this data into the cloud for your customers. You can also create plugins and get crazier with Cypress if you’d like.

In this talk we’ll start at the beginning, show you how to install Cypress and start using it. We’ll build some basic tests, show you a few options for configuring and running Cypress and provide info on where to go from there.
