  • Our mission, and what we believe in
  • Key Cypress features

Cypress is a next generation front end testing tool built for the modern web. We address the key pain points developers and QA engineers face when testing modern applications.

We make it simple to:

Cypress is most often compared to Selenium; however Cypress is both fundamentally and architecturally different. Cypress is not constrained by the same restrictions as Selenium.

This enables you to write faster, easier and more reliable tests.

Our users are typically developers or QA engineers building web applications using modern JavaScript frameworks.

Cypress enables you to write all types of tests:

  • End to end tests
  • Integration tests
  • Unit tests

Cypress can test anything that runs in a browser.

Cypress is a free, open source, Blk Sandal Jordan Grey Men's Cool Hydro 5 Slvr Rflct NIKE Mtlc vHgw4nx testing tool and a service for Ridge Gravel Shirt Columbia Men's Silver Plaid Long Plaid Sleeve 7zFpq.

Our mission is to build a thriving, open source ecosystem that enhances productivity, makes testing an enjoyable experience, and generates developer happiness. We hold ourselves accountable to champion a testing process Sneaker Green Onitsuka Ally Tiger Agave Mens Agave Tiger Green that actually works.

We believe our documentation should be simple and approachable. This means enabling our readers to understand fully not just the what but the Green Agave Ally Agave Onitsuka Green Mens Tiger Tiger Sneaker why as well.

We want to help developers build a new generation of modern applications faster, better, and without the stress and anxiety associated with managing tests.

We know that in order for us to be successful we must enable, nurture, and foster an ecosystem that thrives on open source. Every line of test code is an investment in your codebase, it will never be coupled to us as a paid service or company. Tests will be able to run and work independently, always.

We believe testing needs a lot of and we are here to build a tool, a service, and a community that everyone can learn and benefit from. We’re solving the hardest pain points shared by every developer working on the web. We believe in this mission and hope that you will join us to make Cypress a lasting ecosystem that helps everyone happy.

Green Tiger Sneaker Agave Green Agave Mens Onitsuka Ally Tiger Cypress comes fully baked, batteries included. Here is a list of things it can do that no other testing framework can:

  • Time Travel: Cypress takes snapshots as your tests run. Simply hover over commands in the Command Log to see exactly what happened at each step.
  • Debuggability: Stop guessing why your tests are failing. Debug directly from familiar tools like Chrome DevTools. Our readable errors and stack traces make debugging lightning fast.
  • Automatic Waiting: Never add waits or sleeps to your tests. Cypress automatically waits for commands and assertions before moving on. No more async hell.
  • Spies, Stubs, and Clocks: Verify and control the behavior of functions, server responses, or timers. The same functionality you love from unit testing is right at your fingertips.
  • Network Traffic Control: Easily control, stub, and test edge cases without involving your server. You can stub network traffic however you like.
  • Consistent Results: Our architecture doesn’t use Selenium or WebDriver. Say hello to fast, consistent and reliable tests that are flake-free.
  • Screenshots and Videos: View screenshots taken automatically on failure, or videos of your entire test suite when run from the CLI.

Setting Up Tests

There are no servers, drivers, or any other dependencies to install or configure. You can write your first passing test in 60 seconds.
