The past few weeks have been testing, talking to customers and collecting feedback.
One of the big friction points when creating an automated test is not being able to see what's happening in the browser.
Today, I've added in the ability to take a screenshot when a test is executed so users can see exactly what's happening under the hood.
Last week I launched a private beta of Firelab, just 67 days after my first commit.
Today, I'm delighted to have my first 10 users onboard trying out the product. Onboarding is a bit slower than I planned (I got distracted with moving plans).
Most importantly, some of these users are actively using the product on daily basis and getting value from it 🥳
Next step: iron out small UX issues, implement a few feature requests and then start onboarding users to a paid plan.
Today marks 67 days from my first commit, and I'm super excited to have my first three beta users onboard.
Firelab helps product owners to discover software bugs through continuous, automated testing.
Unlike unit or integration tests, which don't represent a real user's experience, Firelab simulates real interactions in a browser for complete end-to-end testing.
Set the tests up once, and get notified as soon as there's a problem in your app without spending hours running through browser tests every time you ship an update.

Fed up spending an excessive amount of time test user flows in the browser, I decided to build a tool to automate this process and save me hours of time every week.
I write unit and integration tests - but neither of these account for where most bugs occur and where it matters most - in the browser. User's don't care if server code is functioning if the request never makes it to the server.
Firelab is a no-code tool to automate end-to-end testing from user interactions in the browser to API responses from the server.
How It Works
Record user interactions using the Chrome Extension
Schedule these interactions to run as continuous tests and monitor responses for errors

Writing integration tests is time-consuming and complex and doesn't consider where most bug occur - in the browser. Firelab provides continuous, automated end-to-end testing for developers.
