Benefits of using Cypress in Test Automation
What is Cypress?
What are the advantages of using Cypress in test automation, though?
What sets it apart from other tools?
As compared to the other tool Selenium, Cypress varies both fundamentally and architecturally.
QA developers can create unit tests, integration tests, and end-to-end tests by making usage of Cypress.
Testers may now do Test-Driven Development (TDD) with complete end-to-end testing thanks to architectural enhancements in Cypress. Furthermore, Cypress was created to make development and testing run in parallel.
2.Unlike Selenium, there is no need to include explicit or implicit wait commands in test scripts. Instead, Cypress waits for orders and assertions automatically.
3. Developers and QAs can use Spies, Stubs, and Clocks to check and manage the behaviour of server responses, functions, and timers.
4. Before taking any action, the automated scrolling ensures that an element is visible (for example, Clicking on a button)
5. Previously, Cypress only allowed Chrome testing. But now, it supports Firefox and Edge browsers too.
6. Cypress executes commands in real-time as they are written by the programmer, delivering visual feedback as they run.
Cypress comes with a wealth of documentation.
How is it considered a modern tool?
Fast to set up
Fast to implement and debug
Debugging is also reasonably simple in Cypress. Cypress offers native access to every single item within your program, which simplifies error investigation. While the tests are running in the browser, you may use Chrome DevTools to debug your application. That’s not all, though. When a test fails, Cypress provides a clear and understandable error message and advice for improving the implementation. In addition, you can take screenshots after every test failure or at any point during a test run, allowing you to travel back in time to the state in which instructions were executed. This makes debugging extremely simple and quick.
