Here comes Shisha! Yet another NodeJs based application from Namshi! Shisha is a smoke testing module, what is smoke testing? Read about it here. In short, smoke testing is a term coming from Electrical Engineering, where an Electronic chip is simply tested by plugging it into an electric source and observing if smoke comes out! How does shisha relate to this? Well, just give shisha a list or a file of URLs and expected HTTP status code for each URL, and it will assert the expected status codes and show you back a report! It serves as a quick and fast testing platform for your website/APIs. Instead of waiting for a unit or an integration test to be prepared and run, simply set shisha to run on your URLs, it is fast and simple!

Big news, in case you missed it: we’re going public!

This week we’ve been quite busy, in fact we announced that Daniel is joining us and we took the time to talk about how we process payments and how we’ve been trying to shift more to a devops-ish culture — long road ahead though!

Last but not least, we also wrote an article explaining generators in PHP for whoever has missed them so far!
