Test login functionality after every code change.

Testing the very common functionality of "login"/"sing in" might be exhausting if we have to test it after every change in the project. Entering the credentials every time, or even if they are stored in the browser, one has to click through it. There must be some better way...

This one is the BEST answer!

Use automated UI Test, which is possible with the Selenium library and a browser driver. The browser driver allows us to run actions in a browser while writing code. The Selenium library is an interface to connect many browsers with the same code base. So now we are able to code a simple test, where a robot is automatically clicking through the website and trying out the login functionality. This technique may also apply to test other important and high priority UI features.
