We love open source. As advocates and contributors, we benefit from community participation and return the love via Open Sauce – free access to the Sauce Labs testing platform for open source projects. We’ve recently made some improvements to Open Sauce that enhances the UI and makes sharing results easier. Here’s the rundown:
- Simplified Badge Sharing Flow. Open Sauce users will see a new badge directly on their dashboards notifying them of the status of their latest build. Clicking on the badge will reveal a new window with inline links.
- New Build Status Badges.We’ve developed two new icons / badges that users can use to share the status of their latest builds on their GitHub pages or embed them anywhere where the information is needed.
- New Build Matrix. In addition to the badges, we’ve revised our existing browser matrix to allow our users to quickly see which browser/OS combinations the build ran against and which platforms experienced a failure.
- Redesigned Public Open Sauce Profiles. Clicking on one of the status badges or build matrixes will automatically redirect to a branded open sauce UI that allows anyone to see recent jobs performed by the open sauce user without the need to log in.
Finally, the UI changes are only targeted at our Open Sauce users and won’t be seen by users on any of our other plans. As before, users with private builds (any of our paid plans) can choose to use the new badges by adding an HMAC token.
