Do you ever get those dreaded emails from a frustrated customer complaining that something has broken in your application?
Maybe you shipped a new update that broke something you didn't even consider would need testing.Claim Your 50% Discount on Product Hunt Now
Or maybe a third-party API changed and caused something to break in your app. Facebook and Stripe – I'm looking at you. 👀
If you're like me, these messages cause you an enormous amount of anxiety. I get stressed out to the max when my customers have a bad experience and want to fix the issue as quickly as possible.
If you have to wait for a customer to alert you to a problem, this is obviously BAD!
What if the problem is with your signup form and 99 users abandoned your product before the one who decided to email you and alert you?
Now, you probably know the solution to this problem is writing integration tests and running them every time you make a change to your application.
The truth is, many developers don't write tests, especially when working solo or as part of a small team that doesn't have the time or resources to create tests.
Integration tests are time-consuming and expensive – you have to learn complex testing frameworks and write what seems like endless code to run even basic tests.
And the bad news is – many user errors happen in the browser, so your integration and unit tests don't pick them up.
Do you think your users care that your integration test passed successfully on your server if they're presented with a frustrating error in the UI?
Automated Testing to the Rescue!
The solution is to use automated testing that uses a browser to mimic the user behaviour and test the complete end-to-end cycle of UI ➡️ API ➡️ Server ➡️ UI.
Automating testing is also complex and expensive; you need to learn complicated frameworks like Selenium and write tonnes of code.
Testing can be so complicated and time-consuming that most people don't bother, and it's understandable, but this can come at a massive cost when you lose customers and revenue to bugs and problems that should have been detected and fixed before a customer experienced them.
I built Firelab to help developers like you to create automated tests for their web applications without learning complex tools and frameworks and spending weeks writing and configuring tests.
You build your tests in the browser in minutes using an intuitive UI and then schedule them to run whenever you want. No frameworks or code required!
Firelab then simulates real user behaviour using a real browser, so you can detect problems that would not be discovered using an integration test running on the server.
How to Create an Automated with No Code in Firelab
- Create a list of actions using the UI, e.g./click form button/
- Determine what you expect to happen, e.g./HTTP 200 from /api/auth/
- Select a schedule: hourly, daily, weekly or when your code changes
- Get alerted as soon as a test fails so you can take action
