First up Automation News.
So Sanjay Kumar, who is the founder of SelectersHub, posted some quick tips on how to save time for Playwright users. That helps you not to waste a lot of time using his tool selector hub and he goes over four main areas that the selectors hub can help you with your playwright selectors one is running code two is opening the play right window and then going to the console typing. Playwright Just to verify one player right selector. Well, using selectors hub helps you save money by not wasting more time. So if you haven't seen Selectors Hub and use play, right here is just some more features that have been added on by Sanjay. So you definitely should check out. Thank you, Sanjay, for that.
So I don't know how I missed this next article. It was released actually a few months ago, and it's how serverless UI testing uses Selenium, MWC, Lambda MWC, 4G and MWC developer tools. And this article demonstrates how to use AWP Developer Tools to build a continuous delivery pipeline that automatically deploys a test environment and runs a UI test against it. It also goes over how to build a container image which includes chromium browser, Firefox browser, Selenium and its dependencies which are used to run the tests in a WC lambda and a WC Stargate. So I think this is definitely worth your time. Regardless, views that technology because a lot of times you may pick up a typical technique that someone else is using in their particular environment and how you can then apply it to your own.
And speaking of MWC, a hot topic has been playwright, so this next article goes over how to integrate playwright automation test with a WC code built. So the article goes over what is the source code builds and watch a step by step about setting it up with playwright and also goes over how to publish test reports and has a link to the GitHub repository.
So in this last week, one of the reasons why was there was a holiday in the US for Memorial Day. The other reason was I totally spaced out that I was just about to release episode 400 and I had nothing created for it. So I scrambled together a bunch of awesome past guests to create a special episode to celebrate our 400th episode of the Test Guild Automation Podcast, formerly known as Test Talks. So if you don't know, I've been running the Test Guild Automation podcast for over eight years. We released the 400th episode last week and we have over 1.2 million downloads. I just want to thank everyone. For helping contribute to make that possible. So once again, I really appreciate everyone and thank you all for your support.
Anytime I post an article or a podcast around automation frameworks, a lot of times people say, What happened to WebDriverIo? How come WebDriver iOS not on it? If for some reason I don't include it. So this next article is for WebDriverIO fanatics, and it's by Christian who is the main contributor to WebDriver IO. And this article goes over how to create an instant deployment environment for WebDriver. And if you go through it, it just goes by step by step on how to actually do the setup and how easy and straightforward it is for you to create an environment for your WebDriver automation test. So really cool stuff as always. So thank you, Christian, for all you do for the automation community.
All right, so this episode has a little bit of something for everyone, depending on what your favorite automation framework could Ciolos is. So this next announcement is by Diego on the announcement of Selenium 4.2 all being released, so Selenium 4.20 and for 2 to 1 for Java and Ruby is now out. In and now has scrolling functionality available. And as always, a big round of applause for all the Selenium contributors for constantly keeping up to date with better and better features. So thank you all the slim contributors for that.
So besides Applitools being the sponsor of the show and having an awesome product, I think all testers should be using which you can get a free account for if you click on that first thing down below. But they also put on awesome free events like every few months and this next one is another must-see. So Frontend Fest is a free virtual event that is dedicated to promoting excellence and front-end testing strategies with topics covering accessibility, CI/CD, UX Research, training tools, and frameworks, and test writing strategies. And if you've been jonesing for Angie Johnson for a special treat, both Angie Jones and Cassidy Williams will be hosting this event. So definitely if you haven't seen Eddie Jones lately, this is a great opportunity to check her out as well.
All right. So I know I already mentioned Sanjay Kumar, but he also had another announcement as a really busy guy who's always working and making things even better for the community. He just launched a new tool called Test Case Hub that I definitely think you should check out because I think it's pretty cool and it's just the beginning, I think, of where this is possibly going to go. All right. So what is Test Case Hub? And it says it's a repository of test cases and scenarios. You just can search for any functionality or feature in the test case hub and we'll list all possible test cases. All right. So I still didn't really know what that meant. I'm like, okay, maybe I'm a little slow. So I clicked on the link and so I just said, Okay, I typed in, log in. And bam, it generated how many tests here generated 16 possible test cases that I may want to perform against that log feature. So really great timesaver. And if you're not sure what to test or what tests, you should be running against different features. This seems like a cool place to start to get your ideas going. And so like I said, it's just dropped, so I'm sure it's going to get better, even better over time. So definitely check it out. It's a test case hub dot net.
So I mentioned Karate Labs a few weeks ago and I just noticed they made another announcement. They keep innovating that they just announced the release of their long-awaited official Intel plug-in for karate. And obviously, this is awesome news if you use intelligent cry because this brings to life the auto complete experience and syntax hints that developers care so much about. So now teams can write to public image and protest even faster than before. So if you use ontology, I have used karate, definitely a must use feature.
Next up, performance and Site Reliability News.
So LoadRunner just announced a new release. I'm not sure if you know, but LoadRunner actually has a community edition that they've had for a while, so you can definitely check it out. I think you get up to a certain amount of free view users and it definitely is the go to performance tool I used to use back in the day when I did just hardcore performance testing. So this release includes a lot of enhancements around the user interface in a lot of new content that enhances integration with third party tools and extends protocol support, new enhanced test operations capabilities and more.
And in other performance news, you want to learn how to take the guesswork out of performance. Well, this next article might just do the trick for you. So that's by Tim, who is the director of Web page test. And this is an announcement of a launch of a set of new, powerful features and functionality for all users of web page tests to help make it faster and easier for you and your teams to make sense of your web performance, the opportunities for improvement, and critically, how significant these opportunities are. Definitely. Check it out in the first comment down below. Next up, security news.
So I'm a big fan of online education. I learned about Hack Edu a few years ago, which is like an online platform. You go on and you interact with the console as if you were really doing security type of practices. I just noticed that they just merged with Security Journey, and that's what this next post is all about. So this helps really expand their catalog. And the goal really is to turn any developer into a security champion and it just grows over what is security journey? Why it was acquired by Hack Edu, and what that means for security training in the future.
And you probably heard of the company White Sauce, which I've mentioned on the show numerous times, which are no longer are going to hear about anymore. And the reason why is they just rebranded and renamed themselves to mend. So if you hear about mend, that used to be white sauce. So just avoiding confusion, just wants to announce what that means and have a link to this article that talks about what MEND does, why they changed the name, and how it can help you with your security efforts.
