End-To-End Testing Principles


  • End to end

    • Starting to believe that we should just really treat it as if we are a user and that we're doing
  • Database cleanup?

    • Cypress io says not to bother with database cleanup after every test — instead, every now and then, just replace the test database.
  • Using test fixtures hidden behind a non-production endpoint

    • You can also expose a backdoor that is only visible in test environments, never production — that backdoor allows you to set up test fixtures. These fixtures are hard-coded, it's just that the HTTP request is a command to load them into state.
