Cypress terminal report

Build Status

Plugin for cypress that adds better terminal output when tests fail on the terminal for better debugging. Prints cy commands, console.warn, console.error and request response data captured with cy.route.

Note: If you want to display the logs when test succeed as well then check the options for the support install.

Note: Currently logs do not appear in the dashboard. If you want to see them go to your CI runner and check the pipeline logs there.

    npm i --save-dev cypress-terminal-report
  2. Register the output plugin in cypress/plugins/index.js
    module.exports = (on) => {
  3. Register the log collector support in cypress/support/index.js
