re: Who's looking for open source contributors? (September 17 edition) VIEW POST


I started TesterBot a while back, but I stopped when I learned that Google had released Lighthouse which was quite similar and comprehensive.

If there's any interest here, I'd like to revive this project. I would love to hear your thoughts!

When we get around to writing test-automations, we spend a lot of time writing tests from scratch. However, most of the test-cases for testing web-applications can be automated and reused.

We created Testerbot to automatically test web-applications during the development process via Puppeteer which talks to Headless Google Chrome.

The basic framework is ready and we have implemented a few test-cases, but we need help in adding more reusable test-cases.

Note: I started this project several months ago and built a SaaS product, but realized that an open-source test automation package will help catch issues quickly during development. I recently stumbled upon frontendchecklist.io/ and created github issues to automate as many of those…
