@cypress/snapshot

2.1.7 • Public • Published

@cypress/snapshot

Adds value / object / DOM element snapshot testing support to Cypress test runner

NPM

Build status semantic-release renovate-app badge

Note

Please take a look at a few other Cypress snapshot plugins: cypress-plugin-snapshots, cypress-image-snapshot.

Install

Requires Node version 6 or above.

npm install --save-dev @cypress/snapshot

Use

After installing, add the following to your cypress/support/commands.js file

require('@cypress/snapshot').register()

This registers a new command to create new snapshot or compare value to old snapshot

describe('my tests', () => {
  it('works', () => {
    cy.log('first snapshot')
    cy.wrap({ foo: 42 }).snapshot()
    cy.log('second snapshot')
    cy.wrap({ bar: 101 }).snapshot()
  })
})
 
describe('focused input field', () => {
  it('is empty and then typed into', () => {
    cy.visit('http://todomvc.com/examples/react/')
    cy
      .focused()
      .snapshot('initial')
      .type('eat healthy breakfast')
      .snapshot('after typing')
  })
})

By default, the snapshot object can be found in file snapshots.js. In the above case it would look something like this

module.exports = {
  "focused input field": {
    "is empty and then typed into": {
      "initial": {
        "tagName": "input",
        "attributes": {
          "class": "new-todo",
          "placeholder": "What needs to be done?",
          "value": ""
        }
      },
      "after typing": {
        "tagName": "input",
        "attributes": {
          "class": "new-todo",
          "placeholder": "What needs to be done?",
          "value": "eat healthy breakfast"
        }
      }
    }
  },
  "my tests": {
    "works": {
      "1": {
        "foo": 42
      },
      "2": {
        "bar": 101
      }
    }
  }
}

If you change the site values, the saved snapshot will no longer match, throwing an error

Snapshot mismatch

Click on the SNAPSHOT step in the Command Log to see expected and current value printed in the DevTools.

Options

You can control snapshot comparison and behavior through a few options.

cy.get(...).snapshot({
  name: 'human snapshot name', // to use in the snapshot file
  json: false                  // convert DOM elements into JSON
                               // when storing in the snapshot file
})

Configuration

This module provides some configuration options:

useRelativeSnapshots

Set to true in order to store your snapshots for each test run next to the inital test caller rather than at the base working directory.

Note: requires the readFileMaybe plugin to be configured see https://on.cypress.io/task#Read-a-file-that-might-not-exist

snapshotFileName

Set to a string to name your snapshot something other than 'snapshots.js'

Usage

Set the configuration options as part of the Cypress config. See https://docs.cypress.io/guides/references/configuration.html

Debugging

To debug this module run with environment variable DEBUG=@cypress/snapshot
