I'm excited to announce that we're launching Testkit's private beta today. Since our first test drive in March and April this year, we have gotten a lot of feedback and learned from developers, testers, and product managers.
We are now at a point where we have a clear roadmap and enough functionality to support small businesses and startups with their testing. To get an idea of how Testkit works, watch this video, where I walk you through recording and running a simple test for logging in a user:
As you can see, the base functionality is already in place, but Testkit is not suitable for end-to-end and integration tests yet. Why, you may ask? Assertions are missing. But I’m already working on it! Expect assertions as well as file upload support in the next update in November!
Recording and running tests is easy and fast, but there's still a lot of work to do. That's why I made the roadmap for Testkit public. Anyone interested can vote on or suggest features for Testkit's roadmap.
How to join the private beta
It's as simple as signing up for our waitlist at the bottom of this page. We will start inviting users on our waitlist in batches in between new releases. If you're eager to join the private beta as early as possible, just contact me at [email protected] and roughly explain what you want to test, and we will let you know if we support your use case. If not, we will give you a rough estimate on when your use case will be supported.
In our current version, Testkit is completely free to use for our private beta users, but we are already working on introducing different plans depending on your needs. Instead of a trial, there will be a free plan with limited monthly test runs. With this plan, we want to make it easy for you to evaluate Testkit and give smaller projects the ability to create code-less tests quickly without paying a fortune.
This might be one of the biggest barriers to switch to Testkit, but vendor locking is not our vibe. We will implement a way to export your tests to different testing frameworks and make it easy to import existing tests as well.
Where do we go from here?
We're eager to learn how our private beta users use Testkit! We aim to make end-to-end testing a more pleasurable experience for everyone in the engineering team. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at [email protected]
