Testing Etherpad Lite

We have recently partnered with SauceLabs to provide a testing framework for Etherpad Lite. This framework currently supports browser only tests and must be run in Selenium or on the Sauce Labs onDemand service.

If you require a key please get in touch and we will provide you one.

Here is a video that explains How to get started running and writing tests.

I want to encourage everyone to start forking, writing tests and issuing pull requests to the feature/selenium branch

Have fun and live strong beef rangers.

Testing Etherpad Lite

We are beginning writing tests for Etherpad Lite and to do this we have partnered up with Sauce Labs who provide an automated browser testing platform. We’re using both Scout and onDemand to accomplish our goals.

All of our tests will be written in Javascript and run on the NodeJS platform. If you wish to get involved please contact us via Email contact@etherpad.org or contribute directly to the pad. We’re looking for SauceLabs Ninjas and people with experience in automated testing.

Etherpad Lite at the Ubuntu Developers Summit

At the Etherpad foundation we’re naturally big fans of Linux.  I’m not sure if fan is the right word actually..  Linux is at the core of everything we do so we’re beyond fans, we’re actively contributing to try to make software better and we tend to start on Linux then support other operating systems secondly.  One of our favorite Linux distro’s is Ubuntu so it makes us really proud to see Etherpad Lite being discussed at the Ubuntu Developer Summit!

This is the second time Ubuntu have actively supported Etherpad and we’re hoping we can further our relationship.  Thanks Ubuntu developers and keep up the great work :)
