Verifying test results is vital. With this task we will try to create scripts that fullfill this/these goals


  • easy to use

  • easy to set up

  • general and easy to modify for

   the specific needs of the user

Basic idea:

  • Use the exec functionality of Xnee to

   take screenshots while recording.

  • Record a session and take some snapshots

   (using the grabbed key)

  • Replay this session. Xnee will automagically

   take snapshots "at the same time" as when

  • After the session has ended, compare the

   images taken while recording and the ones
   taken during replay.

  • Present the result in some format

Work packages:

  • Create script taking screenshot.

     User must be able to take a screenshot of :
     - part of the screen
     - complete screen
     Easy to adapt for specific needs

     bash/sh shall be used

  • Create script comparing screenshots.

     User must be able to adjust:

     - what threshold to use as criterion
       for stating the test was OK

     Easy to adapt for specific needs

     bash/sh shall be used

  • Create script for presenting results

     Easy to adapt for specific needs

     bash/sh/python shall be used

Screenshots will be taken by import[1].
Comparison of screenshot will be done using compare[1]
