CI for Laravel

Testing with Cypress

While testing with Dusk allows you to use a browser running in a separate server/VM/container, Cypress requires that Chrome (or similar) be available in the same VM as NodeJS.

Here is an example pipeline script showing you what dependencies you'll need to run Cypress tests:

  - name: Install Cypress Dependencies
    cmd: |
      curl -sSL | sudo apt-key add - \
          && echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list \
          && sudo apt-get update \
          && sudo apt-get install -y google-chrome-stable \
          xvfb libgtk-3-dev libnotify-dev libgconf-2-4 libnss3 libxss1 libasound2

      # Optionally install extra fonts (likely not needed)
      sudo apt-get install -y fontconfig \
          fonts-ipafont-gothic fonts-wqy-zenhei fonts-thai-tlwg \
          fonts-kacst fonts-symbola fonts-noto fonts-freefont-ttf

You may not need to, but we recommend using the larger server size for Cypress tests, as Chrome may use a lot of resources.
