Cypress + Next.js Environment Variables

Grab The Guides

Signing in to an app using Cypress, but don’t want to hard code the values to accidently upload them to github?

Using dotenv also isn’t a simple set up here, so here’s the workaround.

  • Create a cypress.env.json file at the root of the project.
  • Add it to the gitignore file.
  • Create your key value pairs and index into it using Cypress.env(‘ObjectName’).key
  "userOne": {
    "email": "",
    "password": "thePassWordWord"
let username = Cypress.env("userOne").email;
