Cypress is one of the fast-growing test automation frameworks. As you learn Cypress, you will probably come across the need to integrate your Cypress tests with your CI environment.
No matter how advanced your automation technology is, anti-patterns represent standard bad practices, code smells, and pitfalls. In this case, when creating automated tests, teams can experience a range of difficulties that compound to create inefficient, incomplete, and hard-to-maintain tests.
Most Software Developers in Test are familiar with Test-Driven Development, or TDD, but Behavior-Driven Development, or BDD, is often misunderstood. The truth is that both of these approaches have advantages and disadvantages to consider.
Sometimes referred to as automated UI testing or visual regression testing, VRT checks software from a purely visual standpoint (taking a screenshot and comparing it against another approved screenshot). Cypress is an emerging test automation framework that enables teams to ship high-quality products faster.
