We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve added accessibility tree snapshots to Pleasantest. These snapshots incorporate important accessibility details into your tests, helping you to understand, track, and maintain the accessibility of your interfaces. We believe Pleasantest is the first testing tool to provide this incredibly useful feature.
Caleb is a student at Whitworth University, majoring in Computer Science and Applied Physics. He also mentors two high school robotics teams (2147 and 2733), and loves teaching programming, physics, and engineering to high schoolers.
Pleasantest is a library that integrates with Jest to help you write UI tests that interact with real browsers. It uses Puppeteer to launch and control browsers, Testing Library to find elements on the page, and jest-dom to make assertions against the DOM.
In case you missed it, last month we released Lighthouse Parade, a CLI tool to automatically run and aggregate Lighthouse performance reports across an entire site. One of the most requested features has been the ability to limit which pages are crawled. We're excited to release Lighthouse Parade 1.1, which introduces three new flags to accommodate these use cases.
Development toolchains now have many more layers of tools than they did years ago. Because of this change, the JS code that runs in our users' browsers looks less like the original code we authored. Periodically checking the code generated by our tools can lead to opportunities to reduce bundle size and improve performance for users.
