Suitest JavaScript API

GitHub license npm version CircleCI Test Coverage Maintainability

Suitest is a test automation and device manipulation tool for living room devices and web browsers.

With this JavaScript API you can create and run automated end-to-end tests or write an automation plugin for other software.

Detailed API docs as well as other useful resources about test automation are available on the Suitest website. To use the API you'll need a free Suitest account.

What is Suitest good for?

You can use Suitest for your end-to-end test automation, for operating physical devices (like TV's or set-top boxes) in a remote office, for automating some of your device maintenance tasks or for hunting down a nasty device-specific bug.
