Help + Testing

If you get stuck, here is more help:

1. Fork this repo

If you want to experiment with running this project in Continous Integration, you'll need to fork it first.

After forking this project in Github, run these commands:

## clone this repo to a local directory
git clone<your-username>/cypress-example-kitchensink.git

## cd into the cloned repo
cd cypress-example-kitchensink

## install the node_modules
npm install

## start the local webserver
npm start

The npm start script will spawn a webserver on port 8080 which hosts the Kitchen Sink App.

You can verify this by opening your browser and navigating to: http://localhost:8080

You should see the Kitchen Sink App up and running. We are now ready to run Cypress tests.

## launch the cypress test runner
npm run cy:open

shortcut: you can use command npm run local:open that uses start-server-and-test to start local server and open Cypress. When you close Cypress, the local server is stopped automatically. Similarly you can use npm run local:run to start the server, run Cypress tests headlessly and close the server.

2. Install & write tests in Cypress

Follow these instructions to install and write tests in Cypress.
