Testing EdLab Applications
I attended the Django testing meetup
today with Megha. In the meetup Adam Nelson, CTO of Yipit demonstrated Lettuce
, two of the more famous tools used for testing Django applications. At EdLab we have used various tools for testing our existing Django applications like Selenium
and Adobe browser lab
etc. with very minimal satisfaction.
Lettuce is based on a behavioral driven development testing framework which allows collaboration between developers, QA and non-technical or business participants in a software project.
As we build more applications in Django and introduce new features in Vialogues, Pundit, and Ednode it will be very important to integrate robust testing tools with them. Not even only will these tools make us more confident about releasing new features but they will also enable collaboration between nontechnical and technical folks in the project that we have been striving to achieve with EdLab projects.
