What is Nightwatchjs?
Who uses Nightwatchjs?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Nightwatchjs in their tech stack.
For our internal team and collaboration panel we use Nuxt.js (with TypeScript that is transpiled into ES6), Webpack and npm. We enjoy the opinionated nature of Nuxt.js over vanilla Vue.js, as we would end up using all of the components Nuxt.js incorporates anyways and we can adhere to the conventions setup by the Nuxt.js project, which allows us to get better support in case we run into any dead ends. Webpack allows us to create reproducable builds and also debug our application with hot reloads, which greately increased the pace at which we are able to perform and test changes. We also incorporated a lot of testing (ESLint, Chai, Jasmine, Nightwatchjs) into our pipelines and can trigger those jobs through GitLab CI. All packages are fetched through npm, so that we can keep our git repositories slim and are notified of new updates aswell as reported security flaws.
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!
We are planning to switch to an automation tool as Protractor is not going to provide support.
Why does everyone prefer Cypress which is a paid tool if we have Nightwatchjs? Can someone help me understand which one to prefer with their advantages and disadvantages?
