Simply Testable Blog

Figuring out how to automate away the pain of routine front-end web testing; the story behind SimplyTestable.com.

211 posts covering the initial idea, growth of the service, features, advances, failures and successes.

Our eleventh updates newsletter went out today.

Highlights from this week:

  • Performance improvements in preparation for today's public alpha release release

  • Timeouts during tests are now caught; if the HTTP request to retrieve a web page for HTML validation times out, the test in question is marked as failed

  • ATOM and RSS feed URLs listed in robots.txt as the sitemap URL are now recognised, allowing URLs to be more easily collected for many WordPress, Blogspot and Blogger sites

  • 404 (not found) and 500 (internal server error) errors are now presented on nice error pages, I also get emailed a stack trace so that I know when something breaks and can then at least try to fix it

Expect the next in a week from now, October 10 2012.
