The desktop application provides all of the functionality of the mabl web app and Trainer in one single package. This includes managing your workspace, as well as creating, editing, and executing tests.
In addition to all of the functionality that the mabl Trainer offers, there are some distinct benefits for using the desktop app as your primary mode of training. This includes stateless training sessions, local runs, and dedicated resources.
With the mabl desktop app, you can:
In order to use the desktop app, you will need to install the application by following this guide. Once the app is installed, it should integrate directly into your workflow by providing the same mechanisms for creating tests and managing your workspace.
With the ability to run tests locally from the desktop app, it is possible to get quick feedback on new or changed tests. These runs allow you to ensure your tests are working as expected, without contributing toward your cloud run allowance. Here is how you can incorporate local runs into your workflow:
- Create a new test or edit an existing one
- Save the test
- Run the test locally (either from the Trainer or the test details page) to ensure that the test is passing locally
- Run the test in the cloud on one or more devices and browsers to ensure that the test is passing in the cloud
