Using Nightwatch.js for Browser Automated Code Testing
Have you ever wondered what tools are available to test the frontend of your website BEFORE you push new features and functionality to your live site? Nightwatch.js is a tool to help you do just that. Dale Anderson, a senior software developer at Acro Media, gives a quick demonstration in this Tech Talk video.
As Dale has shown, Nightwatch.js can be used to run through the frontend component of your website to test for potential errors that users may encounter when using the website. He shows what a failed browser test looks like and the errors and reporting that come back. This is a quality control test to ensure your staging environment acts like you expect it to before pushing your code to the live environment. Some things are easy to overlook, but tools like Nightwatch.js help reduce the unexpected.
