Types of Testing
Testing an individual unit like functions independently where input is provided with already known output to ensure the expected results are produced.
Testing the whole application or a component to seek the expected results in the output.
const flyDroneButton = document.getElementbyId('fly-drone-button') flyDroneButton.click() assert(isDroneFlyingCommandSent()) //or even drone.checkIfFlyingViaBluetooth() .then(isFlying => assert(isFlying))
End-to-end Testing (E2E)
Testing the application in a real browser. It starts a browser, performs navigations and asserts whether the expected elements are shown in the browser after performing the action. Often ignores the internal working to test expectations. Look at the example below,
Go to page "https://localhost:3303" Type "test-user" in the field "#username" Type "test-pass" in the field "#password" click on "#login" Expect Page Url to be http://localhost:3303/dashboard Expect "#name" to be "test-name"
