Happy Friday! Here's a recap of what we shipped this week. But first:
We are excited to share that this week, Mohajer, an active contributor to Touca, started working with us full-time for two weeks. Welcome Mohajer!
You can now skip passing
--revision when running
touca test from the command line. When
--revision is not specified, Touca Python SDK automatically uses the next version increment of the most recent submitted version for each test suite.
Helm Chart and Manifest Files
You can now use our official Helm chart to self-host an instance of Touca to an AWS Kubernetes cluster. We also provided a default static configuration file that can be installed via
This is Ehsan’s first major contribution to Touca after joining us last week. Great work, Ehsan!
We’ll use this Helm chart internally at Touca but decided to publish it in our open-source repository here, along with our Kubernetes manifest files. If this feature is a topic of interest to you, we’d love to talk to you and hear more. Please come say hi on our Discord community.
Experimental Comparison Service
We have finally started working on the really hard problems at Touca, solving which would enable supporting the most requested features such as custom comparison rules, key-based comparison, real-time on-demand comparison, improved visualization of differences, and grouping captured data points.
Supporting all these popular features requires making fundamental changes to the Touca Server architecture. We are finally taking on this challenge. For a start, we are replacing the external Touca Comparator service (written in C++ and running asynchronously) with a build-in module that runs as part of the Touca server main logic. This change will enable Touca to finally become a superior first-class alternative to Snapshot Testing.
This is a work in progress so we will share more about this project next week once we roll it out to select customers.
