For all below check the following breakpoints for Vue apps

Medium md 960px > < 1264px
Large lg 1264px > < 1904px
Extra Large xl > 1904px
  • Check for bad word breaks within each breakpoint.
  • Check to see if components are misaligned or have bad spacing, padding, or margin.
  • Check to see if components overflow to either side of the viewport.
  • Check if there are any weird visual glitches at different breakpoints.

Other items to look out for

  • Make sure new API calls use the correct HTTP verb and when working with JSON make sure it is validated.
  • With GETs, make sure that text/html return type is avoided and application/json is used when dealing with json data.
  • Avoid transmission of confidential data in URL parameters and unnecessary parameters.
  • Make sure all API calls are within a try catch block with appropriate error handling.
  • If dealing with forms, make sure the form has input validation.
  • Avoid logging confidential information.
  • Make sure no-cache is on confidential web pages.
  • Make sure rel="noopener noreferrer" is on any link that opens to a new tab.
  • For browser performance, use .webp images instead of .png, .jpg, .jpeg, etc.

Developer responsibilities with Cypress tests

  • Make sure any new download buttons (that don't use DownloadButton.vue) have the attribute data-cy="download".
  • Make sure new pages / paths within router.js are added to the links.js test suite.
  • Add a new test case within downloads.js if you're adding the first download button to any page.
  • Reuse existing custom commands if they serve the purpose of your test.
  • Create a new custom command for any duplicate code / test that can be globally reused.
  • Create a local function for duplicate code that can be reused within your test spec.
