TDD and Construct 2?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Feb 27, 2015 8:18 pm

Hi all,

Is it possible to write automated tests for Construct 2?

So far, the only think I can think of is Selenium, but that assumes that elements can be defined in a predictable manner (ids, names, XPath or CSS selectors).

I'm used to a TDD approach to software, so relying on manually running through the game(s) on any change is a little scary.

(Partly because I am an awful manual taster)

Thanks in advance

My question is how will you do TDD when you don't directly write code in C2? Also TDD does not replace manual testing.

We don't write code directly, but complex logical structures are there. Events, loops, objects etc. there's even a the concept of a class in there.

Obviously, I can't easily isolate a class for unit testing, however I might be able to test at a higher level, so has anyone had any success in writing an automated test suite?

(P.S. I don't think I said TDD replaces manual testing)
