The "just add water" Cypress + Slack healthcheck reporting tools for your app.
Why Cypress.io + Slack?
Cypress.io is an amazing and easy to use E2E, integration and service testing tool which lives inside your codebase. Writing tests with Cypress is a breeze, and you can get started really quick.
However, sometimes you just want to check if your production app is alive and kicking, that is, if a user clicks on a certain element does something happen, is the app responsive, are certain critical elements or components present etc.
This is a perfect use case for Cypress and Slack, to help notify you if any production issues occur. Cypress does not have integration with Slack (just yet!), but until their great team builds this for us, you can use this framework to test anything from a simple SPA to a more complex project.
Simply clone the repo and run:
Then, create a
.env file in your project root, with the Slack Incoming Webhook key:
You can run this either locally or on your server with a cronjob to automate the tests. To run locally, just do a simple:
npm run healthcheck
Make sure to customize
cypress.json to your own needs, and write some more tests in
