UI5 middleware for syncing interactions across browsers

👋 This is a community project and there is no official support for this package! Feel free to use it, open issues, contribute, and help answering questions.

Middleware for ui5-server, syncing interactions between different browsers, hopefully somewhat easing manual testing :)

Prerequisites

⚠️ UI5 Tooling Compatibility All releases of this tooling extension using the major version 3 require UI5 Tooling V3. Any previous releases below major version 3 (if available) also support older versions of the UI5 Tooling. But the usage of the latest UI5 Tooling is strongly recommended!

Install

npm install ui5-middleware-iasync --save-dev

Configuration options (in $yourapp/ui5.yaml)

  • https: <boolean> default: false
    whether to use the middleware via SSL/wss
  • httpModule: <string>, default: undefined
    capability to e.g. use http2
  • port: <integer>, default: 3000
    port to run middleware at
  • debug: <boolean>, default: false
    display extensive logging
  • logConnections: <boolean>, default: true
    show connected browsers

Usage

  1. Define the dependency in $yourapp/package.json:
"devDependencies": {
    // ...
    "ui5-middleware-iasync": "*"
    // ...
}
  1. configure it in $yourapp/ui5.yaml:
server:
  customMiddleware:
  - name: ui5-middleware-iasync
    beforeMiddleware: serveResources
    configuration:
      https: false
      debug: false
      logConnections: true
      port: 4711

How it works

iasync uses browsersync.io under the hood. It transmits user interactions of the UI via a websocket pool. Respectively, all browsers connected to http://ui5-app:port open a websocket connection, listening for and receiving interactions events.

Additionally, iasync injects custom HTML into index.html, manipulating browser event handlers of UI5 controls - see lib/ui5mangler.html. E.g. the sap.m.Button's click event is overwritten with its' tap event.

Misc/FAQ

Watch Out!
Due to manipulation of the UI5 controls (see above), interactions of the UI might lead to unexpected results!
