Just last week Google introduced EarlGrey, so to say this tool was a functional interface for user testing framework exclusively for iOS apps.
In the past Google Translate, Google Calendar, Google Photos YouTube and Google Play Music successfully adopted the said framework.
This time, EarlGrey was open sourced under Apache license, this information was according to Google’s Siddartha Janga. Google provided app developers with guide and ability to include EarlGrey using CocoaPods or just by adding it manually with Xcode files.
This positive move by the company to open source follows considerable efforts in some open source communities.
So what’s with EarlGery? This was the first question pop on our mind, and we found out that one of its advantage was the ability synchronize. The recent test automatically execute network request and other things before it interact with UI. This situation makes easier for the developer to run test even without sleep or just wait states in order to maintain procedural test steps.
We all know that Apple is not known for development tools, so this app should make it easy for everyone out there to develop iOS based apps.
