cypress-expect ci status renovate-app badge cypress version

Cypress CLI wrapper where you can specify the total number of expected tests. Read Wrap Cypress Using NPM Module API and Cypress Metaprogramming

Use

Assuming cypress has been installed already

npm i -D cypress-expect # or yarn add -D cypress-expect
# instead of "cypress run ..."
npx cypress-expect run --passing <N> ...

Where N is the number of total tests expected to pass.

The rest of the arguments is parsed using Cypress CLI method and executed via cypress.run. Thus the execution should match the regular cypress run ... command.

Note: when running in parallel mode where the tests are split, this module would not work, since only a subset of specs will execute on the current machine.

Tip: Cypress has 4 test statuses explained in the Writing and Organizing Tests guide.

Options

--passing <N> checks if the total number of passing tests is <N>

--min-passing <N> checks if the total number of passing tests is >= <N>

--failing <N> checks if the total number of failing tests is <N>

--pending <N> checks if the total number of pending tests is <N>

--expect <path/to/file.json> checks test status against test names in a JSON file, see the details below

--expect-exactly <path/to/file.json> checks test status against test names in a JSON file, see the details below

expected test results

The --expect option is interesting as it allows you to specify the expected test statuses in a JSON file. Each object key is a suite name, and individual string keys and values are the test names and statuses. For example, the following spec file cypress/failing/spec.js has a suite with 2 tests, first should pass, and the second is expected to fail:

describe('1 passing 1 failing', () => {
  it('passes', () => { ... })

  it('fails', () => {
    expect(true).to.be.false
  })
})

You can list the expected test results in a JSON file, for example see cypress/failing/expected.json

{
  "1 passing 1 failing": {
    "passes": "passed",
    "fails": "fail"
  }
}

You can if the tests really behave this way by running:

$ npx cypress-expect run --expect ./cypress/failing/expected.json

Tip: you do not have to list the passing tests. Every test not listed in the expected JSON is assumed "passing" by default.

Tip 2: you do not have to remember the precise name of each test status, the JSON file can use synonyms, like passed, pass, passing, pass.

Tip 3: if there are more tests listed in the expected JSON file, the process will error with the list of tests not found

cypress-expect: expected the find the following tests
* login tests / first test
* authentication test

exactly expected test results

When using --expect <filename> option, the test run might have extra passing test results. When using --expect-exactly <filename> option, the test run cannot have any additional test results. All tests results must match exactly what is listed in the file.

Debugging
