Sparrow project highlights


It seems Sparrow project is getting stabilized with version 0.1.*, I don't think I am going to change API radically in the future ... The same for Outthentic which accordingly hit version 0.1.* as well.

So to sum things up:

  • Outthentic - is multi purposes, multi languages scenarios framework. You choose between one of the three options when writing scenarios on Outthentic - Perl, Ruby or Bash.

  • Who is supposed to use Outthentic? Anybody looking for process automation - developers, IT or devops.

  • One of the intriguing of Outthentic feature is "embedded" testing system based on Outthentic::DSL resulting in scenarios report in TAP format. You write your scenario to solve your issues, you test your scenario using Outthentic::DSL - this is indivisible approach.

  • Outthentic does not force you to use a "special" language to write your scenarios , you choose Perl, Ruby or Bash ( More languages in plans , Perl6 , huh ? ;). Instead Outthentic provides your some integration, testing facilities to make scenario development process more effective ...

  • Sparrow is a kinda orchestration tool to make outthentic scenarios development and distribution process more simple and agile. Outthentic scenarios could be packaged, distributed, grouped and configured to make it easier scenarios usage in a industrial way.

  • SparrowHub - is a central repository for reusable multi purposes scenarios. An only few plugins could be found here right now but this will be a good start point for other sparrow plugin developers on how to create a new plugins.

That is it.

Have a useful scenario? Excellent! Wrap it up into sparrow plugin and upload it into SparrowHub! That is so easy ...
