Cypress 10 was just released with one of the most anticipated features that we’ve been looking forward to, which is component testing.

You should always be striving to break down your code into smaller, more manageable chunks. This will not only help you debug issues faster and more easily, but it will also make your code significantly easier to read and understand.

Testing individual components of an application is generally overlooked by software developers. However, this shouldn’t be the case especially when working on larger projects or features that involve a number of different components. Testing the individual components within your application has numerous benefits.

In today’s tutorial, we’re going to learn how to set up component testing, or write some component tests, their benefits, and even learn how to do some spy. Let’s go and learn Cypress 10 component testing.

You’ll learn:

  • Setup Cypress 10 for component testing
  • Code a component test
  • Implement a test spy
  • Benefits of using component tests

What our students are saying?

“Great course! This was one of the most thorough training courses I have ever taken/endured/survived. For me the course had a real “graduate course” feel to it, along with some almost impossible challenges that will result in frustration as well as some very deep learning.” – David Kotschessa

“The C# section is taught by someone else, which surprised me, but I think they did a great job at instructing at a beginner level. The Selenium materials are quite comprehensive and the instructor is easy to follow and understand. I am impressed that the author has taken the time to keep the course materials updated, and therefore merits 5 stars in my book!” – David Draper

“Well I can’t explain in words how much am excited after completing this course. The more I was close to completion the more am getting excited. You are a great instructor Nikolay. You don’t just taught Selenium but other aspects of being a beautiful coder. Now am pretty confident and can say “Yes” to my clients when they need me to automate the application. Thank you Sir for all the hard work and effort you put in the course. Surely would like to see you in another engaging course!” – Randhawa Verma

I like fundamental approach used by author. Will see:) To prepare such a course – it’s a really hard and big job. Respect and thank you.” – Serhii Kovalenko
