Cypress is a JavaScript End to End Testing Framework. We use this tool to test web interface interraction with users usage. To start using it, you need to intall cypress.

If nodejs and npm are not installed yet, we need to install them:

If you need to install another version, for example 13.x, just change setup_12.x with setup_13.x:

$ sudo apt install nodejs
