Cypress Training Advent Lesson Day 17
Learn the difference between request reply and request continue methods 🚧
When mocking a network resource, your callback code can decide if the call should continue going to the server, or you can reply with some data. This is the topic of today’s advent lesson “Bonus 13: The req.reply and req.continue methods”. The lesson has several parts, solve each one before moving to the next one.
Tip: re-read the cy.intercept command documentation page before starting the lesson.
New video 📺
I have recorded a short video explaining the difference between an element becoming invisible and an element being removed from the page. It matters how you attach multiple assertions!
The example recipe source code can be found at https://glebbahmutov.com/cypress-examples together with lots of assertion examples.
