Subject Re: Potential AIP: Selenium/User testing
Date Wed, 03 Apr 2019 08:33:44 GMT
Hi Daniel,

Thanks for bringing this up. I have mixed experience with Selenium, mainly
because the tests can potentially be very flaky. However, I do think it is
a good idea to test some of the core functionality. I have heard a lot of
good stuff regarding Cypress, some colleagues are using it, and they are
quite happy with it. For example, the debugging of the failing tests is
much easier.

Besides this discussion, I think we need to revamp the UI so it only goes
through the REST interface. Therefore we can test the REST UI, and the
interface apart from each other. This will improve the robustness of the UI
and Airflow in general.

Cheers, Fokko
