Want to learn more about the Applitools platform and how it works? First get started with one of the following:

Running Tests with Applitools

  1. A free Applitools account and Applitools API KEY

Tip: Unsure how to set up your API key?

Learn how to get started at Setting Up

  1. Node.js

  2. Git

Note: Installing `git` is optional

Installing git is used to clone the demo project from the Github repository. Instead of installing git, you can simply download the Zip file from the repository. Further, if you are Mac, you already have git.

Running the Example Project

  1. Clone or download the repository and navigate to that folder
git clone
cd tutorial-storybook-vue

Note: you can alternatively download the project as a Zip file and extract it

  1. Install the dependencies
npm install
  1. Run the example test
APPLITOOLS_API_KEY="[Your API Key]" npx eyes-storybook

This will first set your APPLITOOLS_API_KEY into the node process then run npx eyes-storybook.


npx comes as part of Node.js installation. It automatically runs the eyes-storybook executable.

You should see that it takes about 10 seconds to startup and complete all the tests.


You should see the results of all the components in seconds.


Adding Applitools Eyes to an Existing Node.js Storybook Project

Install Applitools Eyes dependencies:

npm install --save-dev @applitools/eyes-storybook

Applitools Eyes Storybook SDK

How it works

The Applitools Eyes Storybook SDK does not require you to change any code! You simply need to add Applitools SDK as a dependency and run the CLI command!

Our SDK simply opens up different stories from your project and upload the DOM to our Visual grid servers. It uploads multiple DOMs concurrently. The visual grid receives these DOMs and renders them in parallel using real browsers. Then it take pictures of each stories. And finally, these pictures are then sent to our AI servers to check for differences.

The picture below shows how it works
