Happo.io vs unittest : What are the differences?
What is Happo.io? Cross-platform, cross-browser screenshot testing for modern user interfaces. Happo is a visual regression testing tool. It hooks into your CI environment to compare the visual appearance of UI components before and after a change. Screenshots are taken in different browsers and across different screen sizes to ensure consistent cross-browser and responsive styling of your application.
What is unittest ? A unit testing framework for Python. It is python’s xUnit style framework. It works much the same as the other styles of xUnit, and if you’re familiar with unit testing in other languages, this framework (or derived versions), may be the most comfortable for you.
Happo.io and unittest can be categorized as "Testing Frameworks" tools.
Some of the features offered by Happo.io are:
- No more manual parsing of CSS
- See the effects of changes directly
- Test individual components in isolation
On the other hand, unittest provides the following key features:
- Python’s xUnit style framework
- Supports test automation
- Aggregation of tests into collections
