Here is an example of the W3C compatible capabilities for both Firefox and Edge using Java that we generated using our Platform Configurator:

MutableCapabilities sauceOptions = new MutableCapabilities();

FirefoxOptions browserOptions = new FirefoxOptions();
browserOptions.setCapability("platformName", "Windows 10");
browserOptions.setCapability("browserVersion", "82.0");

MutableCapabilities sauceOptions = new MutableCapabilities();

Hello Sauce users! 

This Spring we announced a beta product, the Sauce Testrunner Toolkit, to support testing on native javascript test-automation frameworks. We’ve made a lot of progress and I want to share some of the new features that we’ve added - such as test parallelization and new frameworks. 

Now, with any Sauce Labs account, you can use Sauce Testrunner Toolkit Docker containers to run tests locally or in parallel on your CI/CD and view results within Sauce Labs. Learn more here

Today, the Testrunner Toolkit support: 

  • Cypress 
  • TestCafe
  • Puppeteer
  • Playwright 

Find out more about the Sauce Testrunner Toolkit here. If your development team is using or looking to use any automation frameworks which we do not support, please get in touch with me  at kunal.jain@saucelabs.com and I’d love to chat. 

Happy Testing!
