Storyplayer 1.5 Released

Posted by Stuart Herbert on January 7th, 2014 in Storyplayer.

Storyplayer v1.5 has been released.

The major feature of this release is a complete overhaul of how test devices (such as web browsers) are managed inside Storyplayer, and integration with Sauce Labs for cross-browser testing. It also comes with the usual upgrades to support the latest Selenium Webdriver, Chrome, Chromedriver and Browsermob-Proxy releases. (full changelog)

I’ve also (finally!) completed the manual which covers:

You can add Storyplayer to your projects using Composer – you’ll find the package as datasift/storyplayer – or download as an experimental PHAR. (Please make sure you’ve installed the necessary dependencies first!)

Any problems, please let me know.

Storyplayer is the open-source test automation tool built by DataSift. Use it to bring your user stories to life using plain old PHP #noDSL. Create test environments; deploy code; test with real browsers, shell commands, and any PHP code; and clean up afterwards – all from your tests. Write your tests once, and run them against your dev, test, staging and production environments. Storyplayer ships with 20 modules, including support for Vagrant, Amazon EC2, and ZeroMQ, and can easily be extended with your own plugins.

Storyplayer is DataSift’s test tool for functional and non-functional testing of software and services, built to test at the firehose scale. It sits nicely between PHPUnit for unit testing by developers, and Behat for acceptance testing by product managers.

Earlier this month, I spoke to a packed audience at the PHP London user group meetup about Storyplayer, a test tool that we’ve open-sourced here at DataSift.

Here are the slides from that talk, for everyone who hasn’t yet seen them via Twitter:


If you can’t see the embedded slides in this blog post, they’re available over on SlideShare.

Right now, I’m focused on completing the online documentation (which is very much a work in progress), and preparing v1.1.0 with further improvements.
