Inside RebelMouse’s Regression Testing

Even the smallest software update can change how entire systems function. Running tests after each update, called regression tests, ensures that every element of our platform is still working properly. RebelMouse runs regression tests continuously to increase efficiency as our functionalities expand and new features are introduced.

For each update of a production branch, we automatically begin regression tests. After tests are completed, we generate and review reports, and if there are any unexpected changes, we create tickets to revert changes and fix issues.

Here's a rundown of the different kinds of regression tests we perform:


Entry Editor as a Microservice

For our Entry Editor, regression tests check that all functions are working correctly. It's implemented through various users' content that covers about 95% of possible use cases.

Here's what a test sample test looks like:

AMP as a Microservice

To check AMP functionality, we use a pixel-to-pixel comparison of the production version page view, and then release the candidate version. We also locate several interesting post examples on each of our clients' sites and check them for integrity before each update gets deployed to production.

Lighthouse

Page score results save TeamCity's Build Artifacts and ensure correct monitoring of speed increases or decreases in a persistent environment.

Dashboards

Full-fledged regression testing on our dashboards is still in progress. Currently, we have partially implemented tests on our Posts and Users dashboards, and our rendering engine sees 90% coverage of unit tests on public pages, with smoke tests done via TeamCity on each deployment.

If you have any questions about the way we perform our regression testing, email support@rebelmouse.com or talk to your account manager today.

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, has revealed how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into 2022:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web Vitals From Ahrefs.

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.
