While easy to get started, this dojo will help those looking to jumpstart their experience with Cypress.
About the talk
Cypress.io is “fast, easy and reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser”. It is batteries-included so it comes fully loaded with useful features and perks. It is also open-source, has a strong user community, and is backed by great documentation.
While easy to get started, this dojo will help those looking to jumpstart their experience with Cypress. This includes those new to end-to-end testing and automation engineers coming from a Selenium-based testing background. Prerequisites will be NodeJS locally installed and the project repo downloaded and installed.
- Get folks setup with the demo project and initial walkthrough of app
- Test deployed site vs local server
- Go through fixing broken tests and writing new tests
- Extension 1: Enabling auth with FireBase on app and setting up Cypress to work with Auth flow
- Extension 2: Using Cypress to spy on and mock API calls
To get started testing quickly, I provide a React project with Cypress tests already written for it. We will spend some time getting acquainted with the project layout. Then we will begin exploring running tests in Cypress. We will soon discover that some tests are broken. Fixing these tests will be our first testing task. Then we will create more tests based on the suggestions provided in code. Attendees are then encouraged to explore more ways to test the application.
Note: To streamline the process, please come with the repo pulled down and installed, per the instructions in the README.
