Let's be honest. Developers hate end-to-end (e2e) tests.
But this is because they haven't used Cypress.io yet.
Cypress is the most developer-friendly testing framework ever made.
With Cypress, writing tests is a joy!
No configuration is needed to get started. All unit testing tools that you're already familiar with are packaged in. You can write not only e2e tests, but also, unit, component, API, snapshot testing, and even a mix of them all.
Do you need to isolate the frontend from the backend? There we go! With Cypress, you can do it easily.
So, what are you waiting for? Give it a try. You won't regret it, I promise.
Cypress, because the web has evolved. Finally, testing has too.
