I would definitely recommend [Eggplant Performance] as an automation and testing software. Outside of these capabilities there are other tools that are better.

Best suited where frontend developments are in React and where BDD and TDD test frameworks are to be used. Its syntax is very easy to write and understand. Even the non-programmer can do the initial setup. Not suited when the language you are using is other than Javascript(or Typescript).

  • wdio.conf can contain too much where everything is encapsulated there, like the before and after functions
  • A data provider-like testing would be useful. The only way to input different data into the same test is via a loop
  • everything is needed to be done using the 'browser' object. Can be limiting where you don't have access to the browser depending on where you are in the code

I have not used another tool exactly like this because Eggplant is awesome and we do not need another.

Other tools we selected don't work in our application, it does or doesn't support multiple frames or need more tweaking just to make it works. When testing out WebdriverIO it just works as expected, no need to do such walk around to make it works multiple frames. It also can handle multiple tabs and windows.
