Testing EdLab Applications
I attended the Django testing meetup today with Megha. In the meetup Adam Nelson, CTO of Yipit demonstrated Lettuce and Splinter, 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. Splinter is built on top of Selenium, which Megha has already used for testing Ednode. The advantage with using Splinter is that it integrates well with Django and is flexible to use. It also helps testing the javascript calls that we have been using heavily in EdLab applications. 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.
