Build Status Code Climate

DESCRIPTION:

Taza is meant to make acceptance testing more sane for developers(or QA where applicable) and customers.

FEATURES:

  • Generate a project for browser-based testing
  • Generate pages and sites for different applications
  • Create flows that move through a site
  • Use filters to control which elements are accessible on a page depending on its state
  • Taza automatically creates and cleans up the browser for each site just like a File block
  • Manage tests by tags
  • Cross-site testing

ISSUES:

  • Taza has only been used in the wild with WATIR(Safari/Firefox/IE), but Selenium support is built-in
  • Taza's generators currently generate RSpec specs, Test::Unit and other test framework support is planned

SYNOPSIS:

Taza is meant to be a refreshing way to look at browser testing. Taza provides a few ways to abstract browser-based testing into three simple ideas.

  • Sites
  • Pages
  • Flows

Sites have Pages. Pages have elements and filters. Flows are common actions on a site such as logging in or performing a search.

Here's an example for starting a project around Google apps:

  

That will generate an RSpec HTML report at artifacts/functional/google/index.html

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Ruby >= 1.8.7
  • A browser.

INSTALL:

  • $ [sudo] gem install taza
