This PR is more about setting things up then it is about programming. Oh well, that’s what modern programming consists of for the most part – integrating third-party packages and then hacking around to make them do what’s required. Making cypress e2e tests work with istanbul is not trivial, especially for the backend – but it’s done, and I couldn’t be happier with the result; code coverage report for end to end tests, both frontend and backend, this is just wonderful 🙂
Now we have 2 suites of end to end tests – one for the frontend and the other one for the backend, – and both generate beautiful coverage reports, check them out:
This is really great, we can now see what parts of our code are not covered by the e2e tests, and strive for 100% coverage. I’m not a fan of unit tests, but end to end tests truly give me a peace of mind – we all want to deliver software without bugs, and good end to end tests is the most effective way to get there.
