The motivation for Intern 4 is to make it easier to author tests with ES6+ features within tests, with or without transpilation.
Want to skim? Here’s the Intern Roadmap which lists our high level status for each Intern release going forward.
Or if you’re curious to know the details for our plans for Intern this year, read on:
As the new year starts to unfold, it’s time to take a quick look at the things our team at SitePen resolves to do this year.
Selenium is the leading tool for browser and mobile app automation and functional testing. Each year the Selenium community gets together to talk about emerging trends with Selenium and testing best practices in general. This year’s event was held in London at the Mermaid Theatre along the Thames. The conference provided an excellent opportunity to meet the key members of the Selenium team and other people and companies focused on testing. Here are some highlights from this year’s conference.
Thanks to a generous Mozilla Open Source Support program grant, Intern has expanded its testing ecosystem to include new and robust sets of tools. Engineers can now easily write tests to benchmark sections of code, test for accessibility (a11y) support, and test for visual differences. Today we’ll show you how to use Intern’s Visual Regression plugin to test for visual changes using a simple web page.
Intern already has a wide array of capabilities and today we’re pleased to announce one more: accessibility testing. Thanks to a generous grant from Mozilla Open Source Support we’ve created the intern-a11y plugin, which allows users to run accessibility tests on pages or components using Intern.
Today we’re pleased to announce the release of Intern 3.4. This release brings usability enhancements and bugfixes, including a new benchmarking mode! We’ve outlined some of the features below, but as always, visit the release notes for more details.
A number of contributors made this release possible. Thanks to all of them for their code and issue submissions. We’d especially like to thank Mozilla Open Source Support for their sponsorship of the performance benchmarking functionality.
With Intern you can easily run tests using your local machine’s web browser or on any other machine running a Selenium server. Sometimes a project will need to be tested across a wide range of platforms and browsers, more than an individual user or even an enterprise may have available. Cloud testing services such as BrowserStack, CrossBrowserTesting, Sauce Labs, and TestingBot provide access to hundreds of VMs running various combinations of platform and browser versions. Intern has out-of-the-box support for several such services.
.end() statement and where to resolve promises with Intern. Here was our response!
Today, we’re very happy to announce the release of Intern 3.3! This is the result of several months of work to improve Intern and its Dig Dug and Leadfoot dependencies, as well as the introduction of a new intern-cli package to make command-line testing configuration even easier. sitecues by Ai Squared generously sponsored some of these efforts!
One of Intern’s goals has always been to make writing high-quality tests easier, but running those tests hasn’t always been straightforward. Now there‘s a new way to run Intern tests — intern-cli. This package provides an
intern command that has a POSIX-like interface, using familiar flags and options like
--help. It follows some conventions that make running Intern simpler, and provides plenty of inline help. It even makes getting started with Intern easier with a new
