We've spent the last 6 months working on our biggest platform redesign that will make Rainforest more intuitive and powerful to use, and we can’t wait to share it with you. All the things you love about Rainforest are still there, in a much cleaner and easier to use interface.

All-New Platform Features for Even Better Rainforest Results

We’re also excited to introduce a new set of tools that make it easier to organize your test suite, review your results and view your test coverage.

We’re focusing on making Rainforest part of QA strategies that accelerate development, rather than holding it back. With that goal in mind, our latest feature set focuses on making the test writing and management process smoother and faster.

Better Test Organization

Organizing your QA tests lets you run key tests faster and get more comprehensive feedback easily. Group your Rainforest tests by feature and get visibility on coverage for your entire product.

Your Run Settings Panel

From scheduled smoke tests to pre-release feature checks, scheduling tests runs helps minimize management time. Manage run settings and schedules in one place. Use test-level run settings only as needed and keep your browser and device coverage consistent.

Broken Test? Disable It.

Broken tests are part of the fast-moving QA process, but that doesn’t mean they should clutter up your test results. Find a bug? Making a few key edits to a test? Disable it until you’re ready to run. Disabled tests that are part of any test suites won't run – no need to move them out of the group.

Rich Results at Your Fingertips

Whether you want quick confirmation or a deep dive into test results, our new view of test results has you covered. Experience cleaner, faster results to act on bugs with confidence. Surface failures on hover, jump straight into troubled platforms and instantly see videos of the bug.

Rainforest 2.0 CLI

Integrate via CLI

Don't use Ruby? Our Go-based CLI works with any language and is updated automatically. You can also now execute runs just like unit tests, simply by pointing to your local RFML repository – we'll take care of the rest.
