SmartUI CLI for Visual Regression Testing

We've just introduced a SmartUI CLI to make visual regression testing easier and more convenient for you. With this, you can now perform visual regression testing effortlessly right from your command line terminal.

It's easy to get started with SmartUI CLI -

  1. Install the necessary dependencies.
  2. Create a URL file.
  3. Configure your project token.
  4. Create and configure SmartUI config.
  5. Execute the tests on the SmartUI cloud using CLI.

Test Analytics

Get Test Case Insights in Test Analytics for HyperExecute

We have now added two new widgets in LambdaTest Analytics: the Test Cases Health Snapshot and the Test Cases View for HyperExecute. These widgets are designed to make it easier for you to dive into the details of your test execution at the individual test case level. 

With these features, you can now access in-depth information about the number and types of test cases. The best part is that you can customize these widgets and apply advanced filters to tailor your analysis according to your specific needs. It's all about giving you the tools to gain a deeper understanding of your test cases and their performance.

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.

Live with New Widget: Job Queue Time Trends

Now visualize your job queue time in an easy-to-read time-series plot using the Job Queue Time Trends widget for HyperExecute. It enables you to see how much time each job spends in the queue before execution, giving you an overview of your testing pipeline's efficiency. 🕛

How this widget helps you?
  1. Identify bottlenecks: By monitoring your job queue time, you can quickly identify potential bottlenecks and take necessary actions to improve the efficiency of your testing pipeline.
  2. Optimize resource allocation: Understanding your job queue time helps you make informed decisions about resource allocation, ensuring that your testing infrastructure is used optimally.
  3. Improved collaboration: Share insights from the Job Queue Time Widget with your team members to foster collaboration and improve your testing processes.
