Depicted

Make continuous deployment safe by comparing before and after webpage screenshots for each release. Depicted shows when any visual, perceptual differences are found. This is the ultimate, automated end-to-end test.

Depicted is

  • An API server for capturing webpage screenshots and automatically generating visual, perceptual difference images ("pdiffs").
  • A workflow for teams to coordinate new releases using pdiffs.
  • A client library for integrating with existing continuous integration processes.
  • Built for portability; API server runs on App Engine, behind the firewall, etc.
  • A wrapper of PhantomJS for screenshotting.
  • Open source, Apache 2.0 licensed.
  • Not a framework, not a religion.

See the video (right) for a presentation about how perceptual diffs have made continuous deployment safe. Learn about the tool and API on GitHub.
