What is Cypress?
Who uses Cypress?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Cypress in their tech stack.
As we all know testing is an important part of any application. To assist with our testing we are going to use both Cypress and Jest. We feel these tools complement each other and will help us get good coverage of our code. We will use Cypress for our end to end testing as we've found it quite user friendly. Jest will be used for our unit tests because we've seen how many larger companies use it with great success.
In the company I will be building test automation framework and my new company develops apps mainly using AngularJS/TypeScript. I was planning to build Protractor-Jasmine framework but a friend of mine told me about Cypress and heard that its users are very satisfied with it. I am trying to understand the capabilities of Cypress and as the final goal to differentiate these two tools. Can anyone advice me on this in a nutshell pls...
My main concern is:
- Browser support - Desktop - needs to support Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft Edge (minimum)
- Browser support - Mobile - Safari and Chrome (minimum)
- App - Android and iOS
If possible i would like to avoid using another tool for mobile (like Appium)
What do you use? What is the one you recommend (even another from the ones mentioned)
Thank you very much for your help!
