  • How to conduct a visual test for a code that does not exist on a browser
    There's many image comparison plugins for Cypress out there. Internally, at Cypress, we use Percy for this. We have a custom command cy.percySnapshot(). This is how the diff looks. Edit: Percy seems to be experiencing some downtime. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Are Media Kits useful?
    For a SaaS you can use a service like integrated into your CI or release pipeline to have a browser integration test script run through relevant scenarios and take screenshots or videos of interactions you want to showcase. Percy then shows you diffs vs previous versions that you can manually approve (it's good for visual regression testing). Afterwards, have a script bundle the material, upload... - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

  • The Platformer #27: The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
    On the QA platform side, we’re still in the process of setting up Percy for visual regression testing. We’re also feature testing Boards 7.4 with the community, and asking for user feedback on recording in calls. And continuing work on the observability of our test infrastructure. - Source: / 5 months ago
  • The Platformer #26: The Subtle Art Of Letting Things Blow Up In Your Face
    On the QA platform side, we've been doing a lot of work stabilizing our QA infrastructure, adding observability (collecting metrics), and automating more things (such as building AMIs for iOS-based testing). We have now also added Percy to our stack (a tool to support visual regression testing). On the test case management topic, we are currently witnessing a piece of history in the making — the first... - Source: / 5 months ago
  • Opinions on snapshot testing
    You can run direct image diff with selenium using libraries like Ashot etc. However if you are looking for a complete monitoring and reporting solution then a cloud base solution is needed. Applitools, and are some of the tools with advanced snapshot testing features. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • I've built an open-source visual regression testing tool for your Design System
    I'm going to dive into the repo and take a look! We use Cypress for snapshots and for the whole CI comparisons thing. Before I get into it, anything you can tell me to be aware of when comparing? - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • How often do you review and test PRs locally? Is it considered a best practice?
    Tools such as are really good for automating this for web-based interfaces, automatically diffing screenshots from your PR against your stable version and highlighting changes for approval to indicate they are intended. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • How to test your web app accessibility?
    With tools such as Chromatic or Percy you could render a page or a after certain actions and make a snapshot of it in order to detect visual regressions. When building a design system you could have several snapshots of each component in different states such as the focus state make sure the focus style is not broken. Chromatic depends on Storybook which also provides accessibility tests that could run in your... - Source: / 9 months ago
  • E2E testing for react
    Go Cypress for e2e functional, have some Cucumber bdd user stories/cases defined by QA and have them update them in their own repo you include - run them periodically on master or whatever branch, pre-release at least. Maybe also have some snapshot tests with jest, or a service like Include QA, teach them. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Screenshot Testing service
    Https:// Doesn't support Native Android / iOS out of the box (or provide an easy to use API like Happo does to specify manual screenshots). - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Storybook: UI component explorer for front end developers
    The combination of cypress and something like percy ( has made me completely lose interest in testing components independently. The components that make up a UI are an implementation concern that I don't really care about testing independently. I can write automated tests to verify that a component in a relevant context still functions, and can have a check at PR time to verify that the UI hasn't... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • All About Automated Tests - Part 1 - Excuses
    This is mostly related to Single Page Applications, if you've said this whilst writing or maintaining an SPA, congratulations, you've just created the worlds first SPA without any logic (and in this instance, you probably don't need a SPA). That being said, even if you've managed to create a SPA application without any logic you still have to test against visual regression bugs (Things like Percy can help with... - Source: / over 1 year ago
