DeploySentinel Cypress Recorder Plugin

Create Cypress tests scripts within the Cypress test browser by simply interacting with your application, similar to the previous Cypress Studio functionality previously available in Cypress v9. This plugin will allow you to translate clicks, inputs, and other events into a Cypress script.
