Dashboard and API
Running the full sorry-cypress kit - setting up web dashboard to store and browse test results
However, we want to store and see the test results, explore errors, screenshots and videos.
We are going to run the full sorry-cypress kit:
directorservice will use MongoDB to store the test runs and the results
APIservice (a GraphQL interface to MongoDB) to let us issue queries and retrieve tests results
Dashboardservice - a web dashboard for browsing the results
We are going to run all the services locally using
# get docker-compose file
curl --output docker-compose.minio.yml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sorry-cypress/sorry-cypress/master/docker-compose.minio.yml
# start the services
docker-compose -f ./docker-compose.minio.yml up
After successfully running docker-compose, we have:
Empty sorry-cypress dashboard
We are using
minioservice to store file generated by cypress agents - video recordings and failed tests screenshots. Each agent uploads the files directly to
/etc/hostsfile to allow cypress agents to discover the local instance of
Open several terminal windows within a directory with tests and run
# run in each terminal
cypress run --parallel --record --key somekey --ci-build-id hello-cypress
As soon as agents start their execution, refresh the dashboard. You'd see a new project and a new run created.
The dashboard is quite simple - go ahead and explore the tests you have just created.
Dashboard example - list of tests and results for a run
You have set up sorry-cypress on your local machine. Now you can run unlimited cypress tests and use the dashboard to browse the results.
In the next article, we'll learn how to setup sorry-cypress in the cloud using different cloud providers.
