End-to-end tests are meant to simulate a user interacting with your website. Selenium took the approach of building browser plugins that allow tests to interact with the browser, similar to how a user would. Cypress tests run inside the browser with an accompanying Node.js process for observing and controlling the network. This gives Cypress insights into the application's execution that Selenium doesn't have.
Most teams develop patterns or preferred ways of writing code, but it can be tedious to enforce adhering to those patterns, especially for new team members onboarding. To help this, we rely on linters for basic formatting, but did you know you can take preference-enforcement to the next level by writing your own lint rules?
Web applications can grow in size and complexity over time, making the addition of new features difficult. Micro Frontend architecture helps with scaling and bundle size and allows multiple teams to develop and deploy different parts of the app. Webpack 5 offers the Module Federation Plugin that lets you create multiple separate builds without dependencies between each other so they can be developed and deployed individually.
