Announcing Muse Test Framework and MuseIDE 0.1 release

Muse is a framework for building and running automated website tests in a browser, without requiring testers to write code. Test scripts are specified in data (rather than code) that can be easily manipulated by other tools, such as the MuseIDE. It is designed to provide the flexibility, extensibility and maintainability that is frequently missing from high-level test development tools.

The MuseIDE provides an intuitive and productive UI for building, debugging and updating tests built for the Muse Test Framework


The Langrenus (0.1) release is the first release of both projects. It includes these features:

  • visually edit, run and debug tests
  • run tests (command-line)
  • run test suites (command-line)
  • re-use workflow steps (in functions or macros)
  • re-use element locators (by placing them in pages)
  • generate test suite report (JUnit compatible)
  • execute basic Selenium operations (open browser, type text, click element, submit form, select from list)
  • import supported operations from SeleniumIDE files

** Michael van Langren made the first serious attempt to name lunar features. He tried to determine longitude by observing the position of the Moon. This led him to make the first ever map of the Moon, and he produced maps of the Moon at thirty different phases. He also assigned names to various lunar features, but few of these names were widely accepted as they were closely linked to the Spanish royal court. The crater Langrenus on the Moon is named after him.
