Super excited about our open-source launch of Huxley, an app that helps fight CSS and UI regression. — https://t.co/5bnTA3lvds— Maykel Loomans (@miekd) July 30, 2013
Pete Hunt and Maykel Loomans (from Instagram) launched Huxley a little while back. It's a test-like system for catching visual UI regressions in web applications -- similar to a test suite for code, but instead it takes screenshots as you browse and compares them to a known good version of your site.
I've been playing around with Huxley for a bit on a test project and I think it solves a hard problem: making sure you don't break your website's UI when quickly iterating and shipping often (you're doing this right?).
Huxley helps reduce the chance of shipping broken UI by running through a user flow, taking screenshots and comparing them to a known good version of your site.
It runs in two modes: record and playback. You can test responsive sites with the
screensize setting in the
Great. Now get going in a couple of minutes by following the source and documentation here.
