The new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge for Mac has been leaked — And it works with Cypress, and now you can test it too!

Following on from my previous blog post here about getting Cypress working with Microsoft Edge, I have released versions that you can test out yourself 🙂

An example repository here:- https://github.com/YOU54F/cypress-edge

  1. Download Microsoft Edge for Mac (Canary Build) for MacOS here
  2. Make a new directory
  3. Run export CYPRESS_INSTALL_BINARY=https://github.com/YOU54F/cypress/releases/download/v3.2.0-edge.1/cypress-3.2.0-edge.1.zip
  4. Run npm init
  5. Run npm install @you54f/cypress --save
  6. Run node_modules/.bin/cypress open --browser edge to open in interactive mode, and setup Cypress.io‘s example project
  7. Run node_modules/.bin/cypress run --browser edge to run in command line mode.
  8. Rejoice & please pass back some appreciation with a star on the repository! Thanks 🙂

I have been a Software Test Engineer for 11+ years now, starting off in Accessibility Testing at a large UK Banking organisation. I have since worked with financial / medical healthcare / betting / telecommunication providers testing software and along the way helping some migrate from traditional software development methodologies to a leaner Agile based approach. I now work for a consultancy company, providing insight into tools / technologies / approaches to ensure we are testing the right things, at the right place in the stack. Less of my time these days is spent writing test code, and more time championing test processes with our developers, who have picked it up and hit the ground running.
