Selenium is one of the portable frameworks used to test web applications. It provides playback tool to python developers which they use for functional coding tests without the need to learn the Selenium IDE or test scripting language. A framework that 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 problem facing any software testing service team in the Selenium Framework is the partial test or say test in a partition. Writing the whole script and running it at the same time and then not finding it wrong on your own and finally spending more and more time on a framework base to get it right can be difficult and busy. It designs the urge of making selenium a bit better and shows its amazing creations to the world around. It 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 that 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 that helps to run the scripts and test them in a browser setup. 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 they 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.
