End-to-end (e2e further in the text) testing is immensely important since there are issues that can only be discovered while testing the system as a whole, testing it from one end to another.
That also adds a greater level of complexity to e2e tests, making them longer, slower to execute, and with more points of potential failure compared to lower-level tests with a smaller scope, especially when compared to tiny and blazing-fast unit tests. Since e2e tests bring a lot of value, we don’t want to neglect them. We also want to make our lives easier when doing e2e testing, which we can do with the right tools. Apart from automating our e2e tests, we can speed up our e2e tests if when they are not automated. Let us dig deeper into what exactly we can do to make e2e testing easier and faster to execute.
