Chimpy makes it super easy for developers to write automated tests, by taking away all the pain associated with setting up tools and allowing developers to focus on building-in quality.
It does so by integrating and sprinkling magic over the following tools:
- Mocha, Jasmine or Cucumber.js
- Selenium and WebdriverIO
- Chai or Jasmine assertion libraries inside your steps
- Built in Node.js, works for any web application (with special Meteor support)
Use what you are comfortable with
You can use Mocha, Jasmine or Cucumber.js to write your acceptance / end-to-end tests.
Built in Node.js, works with any platform. If you're building a web application, Chimpy can add quality.
A unique watch mode
Reruns only the specs you tag, allowing you to stay hyper-focused on the feature you're working on.
Write your step definitions in a synchronous style
Tests don't need to be complicated! No more callback hell or confusing promise chains. Just write easy to read, clean code.
First-class Meteor.js Support
When used with Meteor, Chimpy is aware of Meteor's hot-code pushes and also allows you to run code within the client or server, allowing you to test deep within the Meteor context.
Full Continuous Integration Support
Tested on Travis, CircleCI, CodeShip and of course Jenkins.
Automatically Downloads & Configures Dependencies
Like Selenium / ChromeDriver / IEDriver / PhantomJS.
OSX, Linux and Windows
Works on all these platforms.
Mobile Testing Support
Using Appium. You can even connect to real cloud devices services like the Amazon Device Farm
Run your tests in the cloud
SauceLabs / BrowserStack support out the box.
Intelligently Reuses Browser Sessions
Tests re-run fast, and you don't get annoying window-flicker whilst running your specs.
Automatically Takes Screenshots on Failures
This happens automatically on CI servers when a step fails so you can track down errors. Can save them to file or include them in the JSON report as embedded images for easy artifact publishing and reporting. (Cucumber.js only for now, Mocha / Jasmine coming soon).
