What is responsive design?
Responsive design (RWD) is used to render a webpage to a variety of screens and screen sizes taking advantage of that particular screen sizes real estate. There are a number of concepts that web developers must apply for responsive web design such as the fluid grid. Each screen that is designed for is referred to as a breakpoint or viewport. It’s common to have a viewport for mobile, one for tablet and one for web.
How do I test responsive web?
Testing responsive web is tricky as each viewport renders different and may have different elements with different locators. This can result in test code riddled with conditional logic. By leveraging the power of Visual AI combined with the Ultrafast Test Cloud, organizations are able to have a single set of tests – vastly reducing the maintenance overhead.
How can Applitools help?
Applitools helps teams functionally and visually test responsive designs. Visual AI combined with the Ultrafast Test Cloud is the ideal solution to test responsive designs. With this combination all you need is a single line of code to capture and compare images across all viewports in your responsive design. This simplicity reduced what would otherwise become a maintenance nightmare of nested conditional logic.Learn more
