Book Description

Cypress is a modern test automation framework for web-based frontend apps. Learning Cypress will help you overcome the shortcomings of conventional testing solutions such as dependency graph problems, the steep learning curve in setting up end-to-end testing packages, and difficulties in writing explicit time waits for your tests.

In End-to-End Web Testing with Cypress, you’ll learn how to use different Cypress tools, including time travel, snapshots, errors, and console output, to write fail-safe and non-flaky tests. You’ll discover techniques for performing test-driven development (TDD) with Cypress and write cross-browser tests for your web applications. As you advance, you’ll implement tests for a sample application and work with a variety of tools and features within the Cypress ecosystem. Finally, this Cypress book will help you grasp advanced testing concepts such as visual testing and networking.

By the end of this book, you’ll have the skills you need to be able to set up Cypress for any web app and understand how to use it to its full potential.

What you will learn

  • Get to grips with Cypress and understand its advantages over Selenium
  • Explore common Cypress commands, tools, and techniques for writing complete tests for web apps
  • Set up and configure Cypress for cross-browser testing
  • Understand how to work with elements and animation to write non-flaky tests
  • Discover techniques for implementing and handling navigation requests in tests
  • Implement visual regression tests with Applitools eyes

Who this book is for

This book is for automation testing professionals, software and web testers, and frontend web developers who have intermediate-level JavaScript and beginner-level test automation knowledge, as well as for complete beginners who are looking to get started with Cypress and learn how it works. You’ll also find this book useful if you are a Selenium tester who wants to migrate to Cypress and leverage its capabilities.
