A Brief Introduction of Cypress

Posted By :Krishna Ram Tripathi |30th November 2022

Cypress  may be a  purely JavaScript-based front-end testing tool built for the modern web. It aims  to deal with  the pain points developers or QA engineers face while testing an application. Cypress  may be a  more developer-friendly tool that uses a unique DOM manipulation technique and operates directly in the browser.

Why are we using cypress testing?

Cypress testing  may be a  JavaScript-based end-to-end framework for modern web test automation. It enables front-end developers and test automation engineers  to write down  automated web tests in JavaScript,  the most  language used for developing websites.

Is Cypress A good automation tool?

Cypress is an automation web testing tool that's fast, easy, and reliable for testing  the items  (web components) that run in a browser. It's an open-source automated testing framework for JavaScript web applications that allows you to run unit, integration, and end-to-end tests.

Is Cypress A BDD?
Cypress framework  may be a  JavaScript-based end-to-end testing framework built on top of Mocha – a feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on and in the browser, making asynchronous testing simple and convenient. It also integrates a BDD/TDD assertion library and a browser to operate with any JavaScript testing framework.

Benifits of Software Testing-

1. Cypress Is More Universal

When compared to other automation frameworks, Cypress is more universal because  it's  written in JavaScript and based on Mocha and Chai. When executed in a browser, it also makes use of Node.JS. 

The fact that Cypress is built on JavaScript is critical because JavaScript is the primary language used by developers to create websites. Since Cypress tests are created  during a  language that is already familiar to developers, it makes the tool that  far more  user-friendly.

With Cypress,  you'll  also run cross-browser testing.  you'll  execute tests with Cypress on Firefox and browsers within the Chrome family,  like  Edge and Electron.

2. Cypress Automation is simple to set up.

Cypress automation for web testing is simple to install and use. If  you've got  worked with Selenium,  you recognize  that you must select all the dependencies and libraries that you need before you start testing. With Cypress, these dependencies and libraries are already set  in situ  with no configuration needed.

In addition, Cypress comes bundled with a Chrome browser, so  there's  no complex environment to set up.  additionally ,  you'll  any other browser that is installed on your local machine to test with Cypress. This flexibility  and straightforward  setup are highly advantageous when compared to Selenium,  which needs  the user to download a relevant driver and set up a grid to start testing.

3. Cypress Has Debugging Capabilities

Cypress allows you to debug your web applications quickly and easily. When tests fail, you are given options for how to fix the fault. From there, you may debug directly in Chrome DevTools. Cypress also supports Time Travel and real-time reload, allowing developers to review their website code both during and after testing.

Since Cypress also has access  to each  object, it simplifies and streamlines error analysis. Cypress can provide screenshots of test failures, which makes finding defects and debugging apps quick  and straightforward .
