This module provides some configuration options:
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.

readFileMaybe plugin to be configured see https://on.cypress.io/task#Read-a-file-that-might-not-exist
Set to a string to name your snapshot something other than 'snapshots.js'
Set the configuration options as part of the Cypress config. See https://docs.cypress.io/guides/references/configuration.html
