If you are a Node.js developer, installing Cypress as a dev dependency in your
package.jsonfile or even via direct download seems simple enough. Yet for developers working in other languages like Python or Go, using npm can be an obstacle. We often hear this question from developers:
Why don’t you have a Docker image with Cypress pre-installed?
Having an image with both OS dependencies and the Cypress test runner ready to go seems to be very convenient, which is well described in this blog post “End-to-End Testing Web Apps: The Painless Way” by Michael Lynch.
