Decisions about Ghost Inspector

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Ghost Inspector in their tech stack.

Hi Team, I am looking for a tool to best work on visual test automation - Just to capture screenshots each day and compare on the pre-production site.

Currently, I am evaluating Percy, Ghost Inspector, and Applitools (no doubt Applitools is great with its comparison mechanism but cost-wise it's a bit on the higher end at the moment). Could you please let me know which one will be the best tool for visual comparisons?

Hi there, what tool would you recommend for screenshot comparison tool for Drupal sites? I'm leaning towards Percy as it does everything we need (i.e screenshot comparison only), but want to make sure I make the right choice and don't miss out on anything by choosing it over Ghost Inspector.

Ghost Inspector Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Ghost Inspector?
BrowserStack is a leading software testing platform for developers to comprehensively test their websites and mobile applications across 2,000+ real browsers and devices in a single cloud platform—and at scale.
Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
Cypress is a front end automated testing application created for the modern web. Cypress is built on a new architecture and runs in the same run-loop as the application being tested. As a result Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Cypress works on any front-end framework or website.
Jest provides you with multiple layers on top of Jasmine.
Mocha is a feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on node.js and the browser, making asynchronous testing simple and fun. Mocha tests run serially, allowing for flexible and accurate reporting, while mapping uncaught exceptions to the correct test cases.
