I have been hearing about “no-code” solutions for a while but never had the chance to use one. The concept is interesting because programming is usually a barrier for the average person. If they are not required to code, many more people would be able to develop digital and automated solutions to their problems.

Goal

Let’s say I want to create a website with a curated list of local clubs and other infrastructures that promote a high quality of life.

🏅 This post was featured in Software Testing Weekly, issue 55 🏅

This is a collection of simple and recurring scenarios when writing Cypress tests. For more complex recipes, check the official doc.

  • Setup
    • Abort cypress after first failed test
    • Read a test file from fixtures
  • Assertions
    • Assert the text of a page (string or number)
    • Assert the number of elements selected
    • Assert the result of two Cypress commands
  • Actions
    • Upload a file
  • Selectors
    • Given a list, return row that contains specific text
    • Selector is flaky due to page redesigns
    • Type text into input field and press enter
    • Select element inside iframe
    • Use selector X to narrow down area, and then use selector Y to find element
  • Waits
    • Wait until a network (ie. HTTP/XHR) request resolves
    • Wait until a condition becomes true
  • Mocks
    • Force a specific response to an HTTP request
