cy2 - Deprecated

Cypress introduced a breaking change in version 12. Please usecypress-cloud integration package.

cy2 is deprecated.

cy2 is an NPM package that Integrates Cypress with alternative cloud services like Sorry Cypress or Currents by setting the environment variable CYPRESS_API_URL.

The command passes down to cypress all the CLI flags, so you can just use it instead of cypress

$ npm install -g cy2

$ export CYPRESS_API_URL=""
$ cy2 run --record --key XXX --parallel --ci-build-id `date +%s`
  • Running the command above will invoke your default cypress version with the flags you've provided. It will also modify the internal cypress configuration to use a different API URL.

  • If no URL is provided, it will use the default cypress package configuration

  • On Windows set CYPRESS_API_URL in the CMD shell with set CYPRESS_API_URL= (Don't use quotes (") because the Windows CMD takes them literally unlike the Linux shells)

MacOS Ventura users:

Running `cy2` in an interactive shell can fail with EPERM: operation not permitted unless you need to explicitly allow the shell app to modify other applications.

Add the shell app of your choice to the allowed list.
