Cypress Component Testing Vs RTL and Jest

A video showing how debugging Cypress component tests is miles ahead of debugging Jest RTL tests.

Recently Murat K Ozcan published a blog post Cypress Component Testing vs React Test Library - the complete comparison showing detailed 1 to 1 comparisons between Cypress component testing and React Testing Library tests running using Jest. The comparison is really well done, with links to the projects showing both tests side by side.

There was only one missing thing in the comparison: there is a huuuuuuge difference in debugging tests in Cypress vs Jest. I recorded a video going through 3 Cy Component vs RTL Jest tests and how it looks when its fails. You can watch the video here or below.
