Getting Started With Cypress Testing On LambdaTest Platform

Cypress is a modern web front-end testing tool built with JavaScript Mocha. Cypress testing operates directly on the browsers without the need for Selenium. Its unique DOM manipulation technique makes it a very developer and QA-friendly tool.

With this LambdaTest and Cypress integration, LambdaTest not only allows you to perform Cypress testing on an online automation cloud but also allows you to perform cross-browser testing at scale. In this document, we will see how to get started with Cypress testing on the LambdaTest platform.

Pre-requisites To Run Your Cypress Testing#

Before we get started, make sure to clone the LambdaTest's sample Cypress Kitchen Sink repo, used in this document. You can run your first Cypress test on the LambdaTest platform in just 3 simple steps:

  • Step 1: Installing the LambdaTest CLI - You can do install the LambdaTest-Cypress CLI with the help of npm, using the below command:
npm install -g lambdatest-cypress-cli
  • Step 2: Setup configurations on which you want to run your test - Once you have installed the LambdaTest-Cypress CLI, now you need to setup the configuration. You can do that using the below command:
