We all know that full-stack integration tests for Rails applications can be quite cumbersome. Luckily, we have tools like watir and selenium. The major drawback to these tools is that it’s not easy to quickly whip up a test for something your “just trying out”. In other words: It takes the fun out of testing.
Most of the times we then result to manual – in browser – testing. But – being human and all – this leads to inconsistent – and therefore possibly -incorrect testing. Meet Fake, a web browser automation app (Mac only!).
Fake is built on the Fluid site specific browser application and supports native Applescript scripting which makes it easy to perform a wide variety of tasks (including uploading files, which can be a hassle with other tools).
Having played with Fake last night (after seeing the Dutch soccer team reach the WorldCup final) I can only say that this application will become a regular in my development toolchain.
