Axelerant Blog: A Guide To Automated Testing With Drupal And Applitools

Traditionally, Drupal web applications are built using various entities like Content types, blocks, components using Layout Builder, and then the product is made available to the end-user on the front-end using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The team usually starts with backend stories related to building various content types, related roles, and permissions, and then the frontend team picks it up to make the site more usable and accessible as per the design requirements. 

Of course, with component libraries like Storybook, Fractal, PatternLab, and with designs in place, the frontend team can start implementing them as component libraries in parallel, which are later integrated with Drupal. 

In this blog, we will be talking about testing the application.

By using Applitools Ultrafast Test Cloud, you would be able to execute the automated visual validation tests across several browsers, operating systems, and devices of your choice and at lightning speed as although the test runs once on, say Chrome (assuming Chromedriver is configured in the tests), the capturing of the pages occurs in parallel, in the background for all the configured browsers and viewports.
