An exciting future for Frontend Robot
As a web entrepreneur you HAVE to make sure that your product is working properly and making you money at all times, even when you are asleep. We'll see what are the strategies and the tools at our disposal to help us deduce with a certain degree of confidence that a website is up and working as it should.
Smoke testing is the most profitable type of testing in terms of benefits/effort ratio and for this reason it should always be a part of a modern web development pipeline. In this article we'll explore the pros and cons of implementing a DIY solution vs using a pre-packaged web testing tool built for the purpose.
Web development has changed a lot in the last few years - a lot, really - and thankfully also web testing has. However, many people are still stuck in the old ages, with bulky, complicated tools, while out there the world has moved on to leaner, simpler, smarter tools that are fun and rewarding to use. Let's see what our options are.
In this article we'll see how Frontend Robot's "Smart Triggers" can be used to integrate with Netlify and Github to create a completely automated deployment workflow for static websites.
End-to-end tests are usually run on a testing or staging environment, and for good reasons. But there are instances when running your tests on production is not that crazy after all.
Frontend Robot can now hook into your Github repository and - among other things - automatically run a test suite after a successful deployment. Works great with Zeit Now and Heroku.
In our latest release we moved variables and platforms from environments into suites. This effectively made environments redundant, so we just removed them, simplifying the overall user experience. We also introduced a new, more intuitive look and some new features.
