Differences from DOM Testing Library
Cypress Testing Library supports both jQuery elements and DOM nodes. This is
necessary because Cypress uses jQuery elements, while
DOM Testing Library
expects DOM nodes. When you pass a jQuery element as
container, it will get
the first DOM node from the collection and use that as the
DOM Testing Library functions.
get* queries are disabled.
find* queries do not use the Promise API of
DOM Testing Library, but instead forward to the
get* queries and use Cypress'
built-in retryability using error messages from
get* APIs to forward as error
messages if a query fails.
query* also uses
get* APIs, but disables retryability.
findAll* can select more than one element and is closer in functionality to how
Cypress built-in commands work.
findAll* is preferred to
find* commands will fail if more than one element is found that matches the criteria
which is not how built-in Cypress commands work, but is provided for closer compatibility
to other Testing Libraries.
Cypress handles actions when there is only one element found. For example, the following
will work without having to limit to only 1 returned element. The
automatically fail if more than 1 element is returned by the
If you intend to enforce only 1 element is returned by a selector, the following examples will both fail if more than one element is found.
