Screenshot testing is something that’s extremely useful but in practice not used a lot because setting up the infra for it is so painful. I’m super excited about Argos CI which is finally making it trivial and works out of the box! argos-ci.com

When @TestingLib was first released, it only supported querying by test ID. Greg posted a reply to the announcement suggesting we add support for querying by accessible labels and that led to the awesome queries we have today! I deeply respect Greg. I've got my eye on this! 👀

Why do you need Argos?

What is Visual Testing?

Visual testing ensures that a UI's appearance matches its intended design, capturing and highlighting any visual deviations from expected elements like layout, colors, and text.

While E2E testing confirms functionality, visual testing with Argos ensures the UI looks right to the user, acting as a specialized tool to maintain visual quality alongside E2E tests.
