Speed index for performance monitoring

Posted by John Kinnebrew 2 years ago

mabl now supports tracking your page load performance in Chrome with the perceptual speed index metric. This metric describes how quickly the contents of a page are visibly loaded with an emphasis on user perception of loading speed. This metric is also used by the Google Lighthouse tools as the primary measure of page loading speed.

Reusable JavaScript Snippets

Posted by Mike DeCosta 2 years ago

We're happy to announce mabl now has the ability to create reusable javascript steps called snippets. While training any step that includes javascript code, you'll be given the option to save that javascript text as a snippet. Then that snippet can be loaded into any of your other javascript steps within the trainer without having to write that same script again, no more copy and paste.

Any calls to console.log, console.warn, or console.error inside the Javascript step will show up as part of your mabl log output as well as writing to the browser console. If you have existing steps with console calls, mabl will automatically start picking up that log output without any changes required.

mabl now supports downloading HTTP Archive (HAR) files for any given step in the journey. These files provide all the network requests made by the application under test during the current step and can be useful when trying to debug network errors that occur during test runs.

Posted by Geoff Cooney 2 years ago

We've released a number of enhancements to mabl's logging of journey results. The primary goal is to improve customer's ability to debug and understand what happened when things go wrong (or if you just want to double check our work). To that extent we are peeling back the curtain a little bit and giving some more detail around what mabl is doing behind the scenes. Some examples of the improvements:
