UI testing done right with Cypress.IO

Finally, someone has written a UI testing tool for the web and done it right! For at least 5 years I have been envious of the UI testing tools that were written for native application development. I have tried various tools for UI testing websites, but they all relied on selenium, which sucks harder than my vacuum cleaner. No matter how much lipstick you put on a pig, it is still a pig, so the brittle nature of selenium would bleed through, and require you to do updates to drivers as well as handle very low level things like timing between a click and the actual page being re-rendered. So working with those tools has been slow and painful.


Who am I?

My name is Christian Holm Diget, and I work as an independent consultant, in Denmark, where I write code, give advice on architecture and help with training. On the side I get to do a bit of speaking and help with miscellaneous community events.

Some of my primary focus areas are code quality, programming languages and using new technologies to provide value.
