For my day of Hacktoberfest, I chose to contribute to the Cypress project and was able to work on two issues!
Cypress is a great service, and one we use all the time on our builds at Extreme. Making changes to web applications, no matter how big or small, can introduce breaking changes.
“Manual testing takes time, is prone to mistakes and let’s face it, a bit boring. Cypress helps us to respond to issues quickly and gives confidence that the latest update to a website has been successful.”
The first issue I looked at was a feature request that would allow extra information to appear in the configuration settings through the desktop GUI as tooltips.
With a little bit of time left over, I chose to look at: https://github.com/cypress-io/cypress/issues/3237 which will improve the user experience when searching through tests. Development started and I hope to be able to raise another Pull Request later in the month.
