Feature Update - Visual Testing

Identify visual defects quickly

By Elevon, Jul 13 2020

While visual testing should never be used as the only means of testing, it's helpful to know if code changes affect the display of your app. Spotter now indicates when a View is visually different from the baseline.

Spotter also allows you to see each change individually and indicate if that change was intended.

Testing across iframes

By Elevon, Jul 09 2020

Testing iframes is tricky. The security features browsers implement to protect users from malicious iframe content also make testing content informs nearly impossible.

Spotter changes all of this. In this month's release, Spotter now scans the content of iframes. You can now interact with elements inside iframes the same way you can with regular page content.

Accelerate Test Coverage Creation

By Elevon, Dec 12 2019

"That's impossible!"

We hear that a lot. It's hard to believe that Spotter can automatically create nearly all of the tests necessary to test your web app until you see it in action. Once you do, the response is usually:

"That's amazing!"

Automatic Test Creation

If Google can crawl your website, extract and index the content, why couldn't Spotter to the same with your applications's behavior? When a user visits your app, it returns a description of the app's behavior for the browser to implement. Spotter merely crawls and indexes this description and creates all of the tests necessary to identify if that behavior changes.

Take the additional milliseconds and create tests for everything

When manually creating tests, there isn't enough time to create tests for everything. When the test creation is automated, time is no longer a limitation. Creating tests for everything takes only milliseconds longer than creating tests for only the high priority items.

Proven results

A new approach to automated testing

By Elevon, Aug 04 2019

Everyone is familiar with the phrase time is money. Your time has a cost associated with it.

Nearly all software teams could benefit from additional time and money. Spotter can’t give you money for software development, but it can provide much-needed benefits.

Automated Testing is Actually Mostly Manual

As an industry, we call it automated testing, but building out and maintaining the tests is a decidedly manual process. It’s the cost of this manual effort that forces teams to settle for either less test coverage or slower development times.

According to industry analysists, we are on track to spend $12.6B on software testing tools in 2019. However, on average, we only automated the testing of 40% of our software’s functionality. The same report predicts that we will spend more than twice as much by 2024. Will that result in twice the average functionality coverage?

While $12.6B is a seriously large amount of money, it is dwarfed by the cost of the testing teams themselves. Unless new testing tools radically alter the productivity of our testing teams, team size will continue to be what holds us back from achieving the test coverage we need.

A Fundamentally Different Approach

With Spotter, we are taking a new approach to software testing - the radical one needed to enable teams of any size to achieve both the end-to-end and the regression testing they need - by removing nearly all of the manual effort existing tools require.

We like to think of this new approach as "automatic testing."

With Spotter, increasing test coverage no longer means slower development times or increasing the size of your team. With Spotter, time and budget can be shifted from testing to development without sacrificing test coverage or overall quality.
