Happo and CircleCI Orbs: Automatic, cross-browser screenshot testing
Tuesday, February 12th 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM PST
Modern user interfaces (UI) require testing suites that test across multiple browsers and multiple screen sizes to ensure consistent cross-browser, responsive styling of an application. Happo.io helps you build UIs faster and with more confidence by providing automated screenshots to compare the visual appearance of UI components before and after a change.
Learn how to quickly set up the Happo orb on CircleCI and make it easier than ever to visualize the diffs created for your components on every PR.
Founder and CEO Henric Trotzig. After spending years on seeing beautiful user interfaces deteriorate over time, Henric Trotzig decided to do something about it. Together with colleague Joe Lencioni he created Happo, an open source screenshot testing tool with a focus on components. After seeing how it greatly improved UI quality, he decided to take things to the next step. Happo as a service was born in 2017. With happo.io, organizations can get screenshot testing in a multitude of browsers, including Internet Explorer 11 and iOS Safari.
