Cross Browser Testing with Safari Alternative: WebKitWebDriver-Epiphany Docker Container Image

Users of Web applications use a variety of different browsers. Neglecting to test an application in one of them may result in lost revenue. Testing in the browsers your users use is important for maximizing revenue. All of our end to end UI tests are running only on Google Chrome. I want to change that and ensure we’re covering more of the browsers used by our users. There was no low-cost method available for testing on Safari in the cloud, and according to browser usage statistics, it’s the browser we should be targeting next.

Identify Which Worker Is Running a WebdriverIO Test

This is especially important when running tests in parallel. For instance, where I work, we struggled with the length of time it took to run all of our end to end tests. These tests ran slowly, and it could take up to 45 minutes for a development team to see the results in the test reports.

Setting Up Docker on macOS M1 Arm64 to Use Debian 10.4 Docker Engine

Introduction This set of instructions eliminates the need to use the proprietary Docker Desktop for Mac on the Mac M1. First, we’ll start by launching a Debian Virtual Machine using UTM for Mac, which uses QEMU under the hood. After launching the VM, we’ll install openssh-server and enable it to start on boot. Then we’ll install Docker on the VM and verify the installation with the arm64v8/hello-world Docker image.
