Ensuring that the GUI of the application work properly before
releasing the product is imperative. After all, its only the GUI that
would be directly perceived by the user. All your performance
optimizations, your algorithmic enhancements in the backend would be
useless if user is not able to interact with your application
properly, or according to his given specifications. Hence, UI testing
in any development process is very important. In this talk, I would be
talking about making this process automated and organized using
Behaviour-driven development based python tool, `behave'. This could
save a lot of developer's time which can be invested in other
important tasks enhancing the overall user experience.
I would take the example of similar work that I have been doing in
gnome-photos to demonstrate this, and talk about how you can (and
should) use this UI testing paradigm/methodology for automating UI
tests in your applications.
