    cypress-select-tests

    DEPRECATED

    You probably want to use cypress-grep instead: no TypeScript or JavaScript parsing problems.

    OLD README

    User space solution for picking Cypress tests to run

    NPM

    Build status semantic-release standard renovate-app badge

    Install

    Assuming Cypress has been installed:

    npm install --save-dev cypress-select-tests

    Warning ⚠️

    • this package assumes JavaScript specs
    • this package might conflict and/or overwrite other Cypress Browserify preprocessor settings

    Mocha-like selection

    Mocha has --fgrep, --grep and --invert CLI arguments to select spec files and tests to run. This package provides imitation using strings. In your cypress/plugins/index.js use:

    const selectTestsWithGrep = require('cypress-select-tests/grep')
    module.exports = (on, config) => {
      on('file:preprocessor', selectTestsWithGrep(config))
    }

    Then open or run Cypress and use environment variables to pass strings to find. There are various ways to pass environment variables, here is via CLI arguments:

     ## run tests with "works" in their full titles
     $ npx cypress open --env grep=works
     ## runs only specs with "foo" in their filename
     $ npx cypress run --env fgrep=foo
     ## runs only tests with "works" from specs with "foo"
     $ npx cypress run --env fgrep=foo,grep=works
     ## runs tests with "feature A" in the title
     $ npx cypress run --env grep='feature A'
     ## runs only specs NOT with "foo" in their filename
     $ npx cypress run --env fgrep=foo,invert=true
     ## runs tests NOT with "feature A" in the title
     $ npx cypress run --env grep='feature A',invert=true

    The test picking function is available by itself in src/grep-pick-tests.js file.

    Write your own selection logic

    In your cypress/plugins/index.js use this module as a file preprocessor and write your own pickTests function.

    const selectTests = require('cypress-select-tests')
    
    // return test names you want to run
    const pickTests = (filename, foundTests, cypressConfig) => {
      // found tests will be names of the tests found in "filename" spec
      // it is a list of names, each name an Array of strings
      // ['suite 1', 'suite 2', ..., 'test name']
    
      // return [] to skip ALL tests
      // OR
      // let's only run tests with "does" in the title
      return foundTests.filter(fullTestName => fullTestName.join(' ').includes('does'))
    }
    
    module.exports = (on, config) => {
      on('file:preprocessor', selectTests(config, pickTests))
    }

    Using pickTests allows you to implement your own test selection logic. All tests filtered out will be shown / counted as pending.

    Combine custom browserify with grep picker

    If you are adjusting Browserify options, and would like to use the above Mocha-like grep test picker, see test/plugin-browserify-with-grep.js file. In essence, you want add the grep transform to the list of Browserify plugins. Something like

    const browserify = require('@cypress/browserify-preprocessor')
    // utility function to process source in browserify
    const itify = require('cypress-select-tests/src/itify')
    // actual picking tests based on environment variables in the config file
    const { grepPickTests } = require('cypress-select-tests/src/grep-pick-tests')
    
    module.exports = (on, config) => {
      let customBrowserify
    
      // get the browserify options, then push another transform
      options.browserifyOptions.transform.push(itify(config, grepPickTests))
      customBrowserify = browserify(options)
    
      on('file:preprocessor', file => customBrowserify(file))
    }

    Examples
