We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve added accessibility tree snapshots to Pleasantest.

With a single command, the tool will crawl an entire site, run a Lighthouse report for each page, and then output a spreadsheet with the aggregated data. Each row in the generated spreadsheet is a page on the site, and each individual performance metric is a column. This is convenient for high-level analysis because you can sort the rows by whichever metric you are analyzing.
