Selenium is among the portable frameworks that is used to test a web application. It offers a playback tool to python developers that they use for functional coding tests without any requirement of learning Selenium IDE or test scripting language. A framework which can help you write tests in various languages as per your requirement and the language can be c++, java, Perl, python, php, Scala, Ruby and groovy. These languages then run the most advanced tests on the browsers of your choice; let it be Windows, macOS or even Linux. One of the best known open-source software of our times is also one of the clunkiest to be precise.
While defining its pros and cons - Selenium, regardless of all the feels to be needy of a framework set up from the ground above every time you start anew. One loses a lot of time building a custom framework and then maintaining the framework instead of creating many essential tests. The worst part is the need to train others how to use it because of the custom made structure designed by you.
Another issue any software testing service team faces in a selenium framework is parted tests or better say the test in partitions. This could be tough and hectic to write the whole script and run it along at the same time and then not finding out the wrongdoing on its own and eventually spending more and more time on the framework base to make it right after all. This designs the urge of making selenium a bit better and shows its amazing creations to the world around. This also indicates the lack of knowledge they have for the root causes of the failure of automation tests.
Underlying causes that make an automation failure are
selenium uses a framework based on php unit testing which is loosely based on php unit functions and so it can be much complex to run a few testings on a framework designed and so it needs a new custom framework for each desired functioning of another test.
unstable or flaky applications are such applications which can easily get manipulated to break themselves or crash run so quickly that a singular framework is just not sufficient to manage the whole function.
Poor programming skills
sometimes the user doesn't understand the concept of selenium's unique abilities and misunderstands the versatile advancements of a particular strain of framework which causes the malfunctioning of the specific test run on it.
Cypress is a testing framework which helps to run the scripts and test them in a browser set up. Writing scripts and running them after. The best part of the whole process is having an exceptional service of messages to show errors (if any) which makes it easy to debug and re-scripting just the part where the error appears.
Amazingly, the cypress framework works on a term where it is easy to write up scripts and to run them all together to see if it needed to be debugged for some malfunctions caused along the way to script the software.
The job here is to make selenium more user-friendly to give the developer the best use of his time and energy. Also, it allows us to explore programming languages like python and find out how the test runs can be made smoother and faster than ever before.
Now with Pylenium, we tried to merge the python developer's experience with selenium to make the outcome more amazing and vibrant than it used to be. The goal of python developers is to use their python skills to bring techniques similar to cypress to create an amazing selenium experience at the same time feeling the power of python.
