Dear community! We are super thrilled to announce that we launched Test at Scale (TAS) on Product Hunt! This is an open-source test intelligence and observation platform that we’ve been working on for the past few months, and you’re going to love it. We hope you will enjoy using TAS as much as we have enjoyed building it.

Go check it out and tell us what you think!

LambdaTest TAS - Test smarter, analyze better, ship faster with test-at-scale | Product Hunt

This launch marks a giant leap towards experiencing the future of testing. If you’re working on anything more than a very simple web app, then having tests that are quick to run, easy to write, and maintain is essential. Test at Scale helps you manage and improve your test suite by making it easy to execute tests smartly, get fast feedback on code changes, and identify flaky tests.

Wondering how?

TAS by LambdaTest is a test intelligence and observation platform that shortens the testing duration by up to 95% and provides faster feedback to developers. It enables developers to get early insights into flaky tests and increases their productivity to ship code frequently with confidence.

  • Integrates easily into your existing workflows by bringing the testing expertise
  • Tests smartly by selecting and executing the tests that are impacted by code changes
  • Delivers frequently by shortening the test times, thus attaining faster release cycles.

TAS- Test at Scale

Why did we build TAS?

There is the pain of getting your pull requests and builds approved. We understand it. And we aim to fix it by providing a platform that helps development teams do their job faster, better, and easier.

Even with automated pipelines, development teams don’t know what subset of test cases was impacted by their latest code changes. Hence, they execute all the tests, which is more a test script than a set of tests every time they perform regression testing. This leads to rework as often and results in:

  • Clogged Pipelines
  • Expensive Resources
  • Low Productivity
  • Slow Release Cycle

That’s why we have built Test-at-Scale (TAS), which dramatically shortens build time and provides faster feedback for developers. All in all, TAS solves this problem with its three-pronged solution – Smart Test Selection, Flaky Test Management, and In-depth Analytics.

Before TAS After TAS
All the tests executed every time Only a subset of tests executed
Delayed feedback on code changes Faster feedback on code changes
Manually detecting flaky tests Automatic flaky tests quarantining
Limited insights provided by test reports Detailed insights and important trends for
test performance and execution

Think Future, Think TAS

LambdaTest is set out to establish new benchmarks for smart and fast test execution. Intending to push the boundaries of speed, performance, and reliability of test execution, LambdaTest strives to revolutionize the testing industry by bringing new product innovation to the testing community.

Considering development velocity and test intelligence as important factors while looking into the future of software testing, LambdaTest launched TAS.

Think Future, Think TAS

TAS provides an enterprise-grade test intelligence platform for CI/CD, DevOps teams, and QA professionals to manage a wide range of modern testing environments on-premise or in the cloud.

Here’s a short glimpse of TAS:

Fast-track your entire development pipeline

Our intelligent test runner automatically selects the subset of impacted tests to ensure fast turnarounds, gaining up to 95% reduction in testing durations. It’s an integrated development environment, workflow suite, and code reviewer all in one.

Fast-track your entire development pipeline

One-stop solution for all your test execution needs

A workflow manager for business process management and communication among teams. TAS is efficient, feature-rich, and easy to use. It helps you achieve deep insights about test execution around key performance indicators like MTTR, MTBF, and Flake rate, as well as frequent problems found and fixed before they become a problem.

One-stop solution for all your test execution needs

We’re the testing experts, so you can be free to deliver what matters

TAS will stop flaky tests from creating problems and avoid the high costs that might come later. You also have the option to find, flag, and quarantine them.

TAS-Testing experts

And it’s not just all!

  • Enables smart auto-grouping to distribute tests across containers based on execution times evenly.
  • Supports JavaScript, and is easily customizable to support other major languages.
  • Supports top JavaScript testing frameworks like Jest, Mocha, and Jasmine.
  • Integrates with your pipeline via YAML-driven declarative workflow management.
  • Avoids WIP commits by allowing blocking and unblocking tests directly from the UI or YAML directive.
  • Smart dependency caching to speed up subsequent test runs.
  • Provides different test execution options (TAS cloud and Self-hosted runners).
  • Free for open-source projects.

If you ❤️ open-source, you could also help in making TAS better by contributing to the TAS project on GitHub or join the TAS community on Discord.

Looking into the future of Software Testing

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”- Eleanor Roosevelt

TAS is the future of software testing and engineering management. We are looking for the best talent to help shape our BETA platform and make a real impact. Join us today and become our product & design ambassadors!

As a part of the beta program, all participants will get free access to our Pro Plan (which includes all smart features and free hosting) for six months and an additional 30k TAS credits, enabling greater automation and scalability.

Test automation has always been tedious until now. However, with TAS and HyperExecute (next-gen end-to-end test orchestration cloud) coming into the picture, test executions are more intelligent, which means you can orchestrate tests like a symphony. Now, test authors and developers can work more efficiently than ever before. By adding a status badge for tests in TAS, teams can easily display the current state of their build process directly in their project repositories or documentation. LambdaTest’s TAS architecture is designed to streamline test automation workflows, enabling seamless integration and scalability for continuous testing in DevOps environments.
