There are three different ways to count the number of elements in Cypress. To get the exact length of elements, we can use .should('have.length'):

cy.get('li').should('have.length', 4)
Checking for exact match

In case you don't know the exact length of the elements upfront, we can also check the minimum, and the maximum length of elements using the following assertions:

// Checking for minimum lengths:
cy.get('li').should('have.length.at.least', 3)

// Checking for maximum lengths:
cy.get('li').should('have.length.of.at.most', 2)
Checking the minimum and maximum length of elements
