Cypress on Rails (Talk)

A talk about how to replace Capybara with for E2E tests while maintaining all the nice features like using FactoryBot to generate test data on-the-fly. Held on the December meeting of the Hamburg Ruby UserGroup.

As this is an interesting topic, I’ll probably write a proper blog post about it in the future.
Until then, I’ll provide my slides and the demo application I created for the talk here. It contains both capybara and cypress examples and should give a good introduction on how to start using cypress with Rails.
