Cypress helper that checks number of expected and actual assertions in the test

Example

const {plan} = require('cypress-expect-n-assertions')
it('has 2 expects', () => {
  plan(2)
  expect(1, 'one').to.equal(1)
  expect(2, 'two').to.equal(2)
})

If the test for some reason runs a different number of assertions, the test will fail using afterEach hook. Same test, but with a wrong plan argument generates a failure

const {plan} = require('cypress-expect-n-assertions')
it('has 2 expects', () => {
  plan(1) // wrong value on purpose
  expect(1, 'one').to.equal(1)
  expect(2, 'two').to.equal(2)
})

Failed test

The afterEach hook used in this module will automatically wait if the number of assertions is below the plan. For example, the following test executes the second assertion asynchronously after 2 second delay

it('has async assertion, will wait automatically', () => {
  plan(2)
  expect(1, 'one').to.equal(1)
  setTimeout(() => {
    expect(2, 'two').to.equal(2)
  }, 2000)
})

The video below shows how the test automatically waits (up to defaultCommandTimeout) for the "missing" assertion to happen.

Automatic wait

Limitations

To avoid multiple mocking of expect, for now you can only run individual spec files. Do not use "Run all specs" button.
