End to end browser automation testing using nodejs testcafe

A TEST CASE is a set of conditions under which a tester will determine whether a system under test satisfies requirements or works correctly. The process of developing test cases can help find problems in the requirements or design of an application.

In this blog post, we will see how to write testcase in Testcafe to do end to end testing.

TestCafe is a pure node.js end-to-end solution for testing web apps. It takes care of all the stages: starting browsers, running tests, gathering test results and generating reports. TestCafe doesn't need browser plugins - it works in all popular modern browsers out-of-the-box. It allows you to easily write a functional test that inputs text, clicks buttons, and validates the results.

  • TestCafe works on all popular environments Like Windows, MacOS, and Linux. It supports desktop, mobile, remote and cloud browsers(UI or headless).

  • Test cafe setup is very simple and no need of WebDriver or any other testing software. Install TestCafe with one command, and you are ready to test.

  • We can run tests in any browser without much effort (IE9+, Chrome, Firefox and Safari).

  • Learning TestCafe API's is easy compared to Selenium's APIs. It exposes a minimum number of APIs to learn.

  • TestCafe is free and open source framework.

  • TestCafe Studio Cross Platform IDE for End to End web testing

Need to install node.js in your system, then you can install packages with the help of npm command.

TestCafe allows you to write tests using TypeScript or JavaScript (with its modern features like async/await).

 npm install -g testcafe
