Description from store Cypress Recorder Cypress Recorder is a developer tool that records user interaction within a web application and generates Cypress scripts to allow the developer to replicate that particular session. This will speed up your development cycle by facilitating the creation of unit and integration tests. Getting Started Click 'Add to Chrome'. That's it! Once you see our icon at the upper-right of your browser window, you are ready to start generating Cypress scripts. Features This extension will allow you to: * Record clicks, typing, submits, and navigation in the browser. * See the scripts render live as they are generated. * Delete accidental actions. * Reorder actions as necessary. * Pause and resume recording within a single session. * Record navigation within a domain. * Copy the generated code to your clipboard. Usage * Open the extension and click 'Start Recording' to begin recording actions. * Click links, submit forms, etc. * Check your saved actions by opening the popup at any time. * Click 'Stop Recording' to stop recording. From there, you will have the option to resume recording, reset, or copy your generated code to your clipboard. * You can also use keyboard shortcuts: On Macs: - ctrl + R to start and stop recording - ctrl + G to reset On PCs and Linux: - alt + R to start and stop recording - alt + G to reset Authors Abbey Campbell | https://github.com/abbeycampbell Bradley Morgan | https://github.com/bkmorgan3 Ken Sakuma | https://github.com/gxcad Adam Stover | https://github.com/adam-stover We welcome contributions to this project!

  • (2020-10-27, v:1.0.5) Matthew Gifford: Blocks ctrl+r on mac
    Certain apps make use of a ctrl+r keypress on a mac. The Cypress Recorder plugin prevents that key combination from generating a keypress event.
  • (2020-07-27, v:1.0.4) Dwine Knott: Recording issues
    Noting two issues when recording actions on my Mac: 1. Straight single quotes are randomly recorded as curly quotes. I say random as there doesn't appear to be any pattern to when this happens. I'm frequently having to clean these up in my code when I copy/paste a recorded session 2.SELECT action is not captured when interacting with a select box. It is always captured as TYPE. When attempting to run the test cypress throws an error.

    Hi, Is there any way to record a remote device with cypress? Let's say I want this functionality over code so I can track user experience such as session recording
