Simplify your end-to-end testing with Shipyard’s automated ephemeral environments. With preview environments that spin up automatically on every PR your circle.ci or GitHub actions can run against real full-stack environments.
With Shipyard, a full-stack ephemeral environment is automatically generated on every pull request. You can now run your E2E test suite against features before merging into main, eliminating surprise blockers when attempting to deploy. By shortening the feedback loop between developers and testing, you empower your teams to move faster.
E2E / Integration tests are most reliable when testing against your entire stack, not partials with mocks. The more production-like the environments you test against, the more reliable the test. By generating full-stack ephemeral environments on every pull request, Shipyard enables you to do true integration tests against isolated, production-like environments, giving you accurate pass/fails.
With Shipyard, a full-stack ephemeral environment is automatically generated on every pull request, giving your CI/CD pipeline the capability to test features in parallel. Each of these environments are independent, meaning that if a new bug or regression is introduced, it will not block other tests running. By enabling parallel testing you avoid the dreaded “waiting for the testing environment to free up” and save your developers hours daily.
A developer completes a feature and creates a pull request
Shipyard automatically builds and deploys a full-stack preview environment built just for that branch
Your CI/CD now has access to that ephemeral environment through Shipyard’s API
Your CI/CD platform starts running your full suite of E2E / integration tests against your newly generated ephemeral environment. Passes or fails are propagated to your developers once tests finish
Fixes by developers, based on failed tests, can be pushed and automatically deployed for the tests to run again
