Procedure automation is one of the most widely used practices in software development and execution worldwide, so developers, engineers, and experts are constantly searching for new tools to help them with this. Cypress is one of the most versatile when it comes to testing web applications.
On their official website they define it like this: “Cypress is a next-generation front-end testing tool created for the modern web. We address key pain points developers and QA engineers face when testing modern apps.”
It allows the user to: configure tests, write tests, run tests, and also perform debugging tests. They point out that while Cypress is often compared to Selenium, they are "fundamentally and architecturally different." Cypress, being unrestricted, can do fast, easy, and reliable testing.
This easy-to-use tool operates directly in the browser using a novel DOM manipulation technique, allowing front-end developers and QA engineers to write automated web tests while simultaneously eliminating software or application weaknesses.
Cypress is universal
It differs from other testing tools because it is designed to test like a real user, which means that it will test commands and assertions until you get a final answer.
