Visual Regression Testing with Cypress & Percy (basic)
What you'll learn
- Learn how to create snapshot comparison automated tests quickly and easily
- Learn how to create visual regression tests in a simple way
- Learn how to deal with dynamic content when doing visual regression testing
- git, Nodejs, and NPM
Start your path on becoming an expert in visual regression testing using Cypress and Percy and broaden your test automation skills.
Cypress is a modern open-source test automation framework for web applications.
Cypress can work together with Percy, a software as a service (with a free tier version) that allows us to take snapshots of web apps during test automation execution.
In this course, you will learn the basics of integrating the framework Cypress with the Percy service to write and run automated snapshot comparison tests (also known as visual regression tests.)
During the course, you will learn:
How to set up the project from scratch
How to create an account on Percy
How to create a project on Percy's dashboard
How to export the project_token
How to create automated tests with Cypress sending snapshots to Percy's dashboard
How to deal with dynamic elements
Project documentation and a summary of the learnings
As soon as you're done with the course, you will be able to put all the learnings into practice on real web projects of your own or related to your work.
These are the main benefits of enrolling in this course:
An easy project set up
Functional and visual testing, altogether
Robust automated tests for more reliable test results
Join us and excel in your career!
