WordPress.com e2e Automated Tests Now Open Source

I am very pleased to announce that all of our e2e tests for the WordPress.com platform are open source as of this morning. This is following in the footsteps of the WordPress.com Calypso front-end which is also open source.

I am continually reminded of how fortunate I am to work at Automattic who takes pride in its commitment to Default to Open:

“The quality of our code and our product depend on the amount of feedback we get and on the amount of people who use them. If we’re developing behind closed doors, we are putting artificial limits to both.

We have done our best work in the open, let’s continue working this way.”

~ Matt Mullenweg, CEO Automattic

Our ongoing development of these tests is in the open. So please feel free to take a look through our e2e tests, their CI results, and fork them, provide us some feedback, or use some of our ideas. And pull requests are always welcome 😀

  1. Just spent 15 minutes poking around and I gotta say, as someone that has spent the last little while guessing how to automate UI testing with practically no development background, it’s helped my confidence a fair bit! I’ve definitely gotten a lot of new ideas but it’s super gratifying to know that I had basically the right ideas when I started.

    Thank you so much for this!
