Happy Friday! We have moved our headquarter to California! This week, we were back at work improving Touca and fixing various user-reported usability issues. Here is a shortlist:

Python CLI Plugin Subcommand

We've added a new touca plugin sub-command to our Python CLI that allows users to register their own sub-commands to the CLI so they can call them like any other built-in sub-command.

Human Readable Data Retention Duration

We used to support custom data retention duration for each suite. But the value for this parameter had to be given as number of weeks which was not intuitive. This week, we made changes to support human-readable interval values such as "2 months, 3 days, 1 hour".

Better Navigation on Small Screens

We improved Touca web app layout on small screens to allow users to switch between their teams, or switch between the tabs within the page using two drop-down menus on top of the screen.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Fixed "Team Not Found" page shown after team deletion
  • Fixed misleading error incorrectly shown after suite creation
  • Fixed broken button in server settings page for toggling telemetry feature
  • Updated Pricing Page to reflect that self-hosting Touca is now free
  • Added link to our Discord community to the help component
  • Upgrade Touca Comparator dependency on aws-sdk-cpp

Software engineers are stereotyped as socially awkward introverts obsessed with writing code. This false perception has hurt our industry, resulting in so much gatekeeping against age, gender, and career background. This article explores why this stereotype exists and why we should break it.
