Cypress Automated Tests for Toph
Automated tests are like the brakes of your car. Without brakes, you wouldn’t feel comfortable driving at higher speeds.
The year 2021 started great for Toph in terms of development. Aside from launching some of the community’s favorite features, a lot of work has been done to improve the codebase and internal frameworks.
During this time, it was becoming increasingly infeasible to test Toph manually before deploying updates. Although Toph already has unit tests covering the critical parts (something to be covered in a future engineering blog post), they are not replacements for well-written end-to-end tests.
