Chose WebdriverIO
Stands out as a clear leader. The fact that there are so many integrations and the simplicity of writing code should make you want to select WebdriverIO. However, the full-feature nature of this framework is what sets it apart. I hope to be able to get this framework going soon!
Chose WebdriverIO
Other tools we selected don't work in our application, it does or doesn't support multiple frames or need more tweaking just to make it works. When testing out WebdriverIO it just works as expected, no need to do such walk around to make it works multiple frames. It also can …

Everything web-based should be testable. Even our highly dynamic content-providing web application works well. Hopefully, it will get a bigger user base in the future so that one can find even more support at StackOverflow or similar forums.

Best suited where frontend developments are in React and where BDD and TDD test frameworks are to be used. Its syntax is very easy to write and understand. Even the non-programmer can do the initial setup. Not suited when the language you are using is other than Javascript(or Typescript).

  • wdio.conf can contain too much where everything is encapsulated there, like the before and after functions
  • A data provider-like testing would be useful. The only way to input different data into the same test is via a loop
  • everything is needed to be done using the 'browser' object. Can be limiting where you don't have access to the browser depending on where you are in the code

Cypress.io is easy to start with and is independent of other automation tools. Unless we are looking for automating every edge case, Cypress.io can do it without using any plugins. Also, when a test fails, we can travel back to the state in which the test failed (aka time travel feature of Cypress.io), which makes debugging the failure or reporting the failure easy.

Other tools we selected don't work in our application, it does or doesn't support multiple frames or need more tweaking just to make it works. When testing out WebdriverIO it just works as expected, no need to do such walk around to make it works multiple frames. It also can handle multiple tabs and windows.
