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.

✅ 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.
