Automate chrome browser render diffs for website testing
Featuring Puppeteer, headless Chrome and Python image diffing
pip install visualdiff
Create your tests calling visualdiff.compare(url), this will drive a headless Chrome session rendering the desired URL and comparing the resulting image with an expected one.
The expectation are stored by default in a visualdiff subfolder of the current calling test script.
There are several additional options you can use, we’ll see them in the examples
import visualdiff as vd assert not vd.difference('https://example.com')
