Marquee, Concurrent Web UI Automation Part 1


“Damn, the tests failed”

“Found the bug. Fixed. Ok now to run the tests again”

“Ugh, it’s going to take a couple of hours for all of the Selenium tests to finish.”

I feel frustrated when working with large UI test suites that run sequentally. I want to spend my time efficiently.

It is built around Selenium

Here’s a video of the marquee tests running
