Adding Cypress to the application

Let’s start adding Cypress and Axios to our full-stack Rails App;

ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute("TRUNCATE #{table}")


If we want to test our Rails app with Cypress, we can’t use FactoryBot or transactional fixtures to accomplish two steps of the Four-Phase test(setup-exercise-verify-teardown) as we are able to do with RSpec/Selenium tests. So we had to improvise to take responsibility for our test database to behave in a transactional way.
