I use Faker.js in my Test Data Generator and Table Editor. Faker has now been forked for ongoing maintenance.
I’ve been learning Python and created a couple of simple apps to support my marketing activities. The apps all use Streamlit to create a simple GUI and make them public with the free app hosting from Streamlit.
- The Adhoc Web Page Scraper lets you scrape data using CSS Selector and export to CSV. Use the web page scraper here
- The Web Domain Technical Audit tool performs some simple checks on a domain to identify risks around expiry dates and domain redirection. Use the technical audit tool here
I wrote a blog post about using Python for adhoc tooling.
Christopher Potts posted on twitter that that all the videos for his Natural Language Processing course are available on YouTube
Free Code Camp
I’ve now written a couple of posts on Free Code Camp and the first of those was published in January:
Practice Testing Apps
The TODO App is hosted via Git Pages and was originally written as the example app for my LinkedIn Selenium WebDriver Page Objects and Abstractions Course
There is a Twitter thread with other testing apps listed here. I mention my Triangle App which I have been exploring as posts on Patreon.
I replied to a message posted by Simon Stewart for a list of books people have written. And rather than my testing books I referred him to my book of Rhyming Verse Suitable for Children (and other people) called “There Are Hats”. Poems and Illustrations that are of the most splendid variety.
