Cypress + Next.js Environment Variables

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": {
}
}
let username = Cypress.env("userOne").email;

cy.visit("/");
cy.get('[data-test="sign-in-email"]').type(username);
