SmartUI & Analytics: Latest Features and Enhancements

Our team is excited to announce the new features and enhancements to LambdaTest's SmartUI and Analytics Platform. Let's take a look at them.

SmartUI

Test on Edge Browser 🌐 

SmartUI now supports Edge browser in addition to other supported browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and more. Using Storybook, you can test your software application's UI components on the Edge browser to ensure they function and render perfectly.

Capture Full Page Screenshots with Auto-Height Detection 📷 

Earlier A/B testing of images with SmartUI requires you to take full-page screenshots to make more informed decisions. In addition, capturing full-page screenshots in Storybook also requires manual configuration of the page height.

With the Auto Height Detection feature, now you can capture full-page screenshots by automatically detecting and adjusting the page height and avoid the hassle of manually specifying the height parameter in the configuration file.

Integration of GitHub App with Playwright 🔁 

SmartUI now integrates the GitHub App with Playwright, allowing you to link your GitHub repositories directly to your LambdaTest's SmartUI accounts. 

With SmartUI, you and your teams can easily share test scripts, review changes, and provide feedback within their GitHub repositories. With any CI tool on GitHub, you can get information about the status of visual regression builds and pull and push requests.

Analytics

LambdaTest Test Analytics Templates 📰 

With the new Test Analytics Templates, you can now access pre-built templates that provide comprehensive insight into your test results, making it easier to analyze and interpret the information. 

These templates provide a structured framework for the presentation of test analytics, allowing you to customize and visualize their data in a visual and meaningful manner. You and your teams can save time and effort by leveraging these templates instead of creating test reports from scratch.

Smart Crop for Visual Regression Testing using Appium

With SmartUI's new real-device mobile notification status bar crop feature, you can take your Appium visual regression testing workflows to the next level. 

By using Smart Crop, you can crop out the status bar from screenshots and focus solely on the core UI elements during visual comparisons.

SmartUI leverages machine learning algorithms to detect and crop the status bar from screenshots accurately. This allows you to concentrate solely on the important UI elements by excluding them from visual comparisons.

Introducing the Newest Features in Visual Regression Testing

We have rolled out the latest additions to the LambdaTest Visual Regression Testing cloud to enhance the UI quality assurance process and help you catch visual bugs early. 💻 

Here are some of the key features:

Git Baseline Branching for Storybook Builds

We're introducing an intelligent Git-based baseline branching system that simplifies baseline build selection for your Storybook builds. This feature automatically selects the appropriate baseline build based on the code changes committed to Git. To help you track these changes, we're providing commit numbers and commit messages for your reference.

Key benefits:

  • Streamlined baseline build selection process.
  • Easy tracking of code changes and related builds.

Refer to our documentation: Git Branching Strategy in Smart UI.

✅ Storybook Static Build Support Enhancements

We've updated our NPM package to the version 1.1.4, which brings improvements to your Storybook static build support. This update allows you to compress your Storybook static folder and run stories across various browsers and resolutions specified in your .smartui.json configuration file.

Key benefits:

  • Improved compression of Storybook static folder.
  • Support for advanced web elements like iframes, external resources, and canvas elements.
