Visual regression testing


#1

Matrix Version:
Squiz Matrix v5.5.6.4

I want to be able to automate visual regression testing on our website, but all the tools I look at for it require integration into a dev workflow. Since we don’t have a dev workflow with Matrix, they are not very useful to us.

Is there a testing solution that squiz recommends for testing for visual changes?

We recently setup around 1000+ automated tests for our new website, and we used playwright, jest, axe, and some others to do our a11y and visual regression testing.

This article gives a good rundown of what’s involved.
