Sauce is thrilled to announce that we’ve integrated with Siesta by Bryntum!
Sauce is a cloud-based tool that enables you to securely test your web and mobile apps across 385+ browser/OS/platform/device combinations.
How does Siesta work with Sauce?
Siesta’s integration with Sauce is super easy since they’ve done most of the work under the hood. The main difference from the usual way you run WebDriver tests in Siesta is the addition of a –saucelabs argument, which will define the necessary credentials for connecting to Sauce and the –cap arguments which will specify the OS and browser combinations on which you want your tests to run. When you run Siesta tests using WebDriver, a standard command might look like this:
For running the same test on Sauce’s hosted browsers, you’ll need to add your Sauce credentials and desired capabilities, like so:
__SIESTA_DIR__/bin/webdriver http://localhost/myproject/tests/harness.html --saucelabs SL_USERNAME,SL_KEY
--cap browserName=firefox --cap platform=windows
This command will then arrange a few things behind the scenes, like setting up the Sauce Connect tunnel so these tests can run locally and securely, and direct Sauce to execute the test specs on the latest version of Firefox on Windows. Of course, there are many desired capabilities and platforms you can choose to make sure you’re running tests according to the coverage that you need, and you can see all the different options on the Sauce Labs Platforms page.
