In homage to its humble beginnings as our 'gremlin' testing submodule.
With which we were entrusted and asked to follow 3 simple rules...

  • "Don't get it wet"
  • "Keep it away from bright lights....especially sunlight"
  • "Don't ever feed it after midnight"

We didn't listen, and it got nasty...
So, we've gone back to the drawing board and come up with a friendlier, cuddlier testing helper.

Gizmo is a simple page model testing framework used and sponsored by The aim of the project is to DRY up testing assertions by abstracting code that defines your page, resulting in a consistent, easy to maintain test suite. The code is maintained by Contributors from REA, and largely based on concepts brought to REA by Mark Ryall and other thoughtworkers
