Hot on the heels of yesterday’s posting about my brief experience with YSlow in a Selenium framework, comes the release of Cesium 0.1, a tool specifically designed for automating YSlow runs.

I don’t care enough about YSlow tests to setup and maintain another test harness just for that purpose, so I don’t think I’ll be trying it myself. For others who get in to this sort of thing, here’s something to get in to.

Adam Goucher has a clever idea to automate YSlow reporting to a Show Slow database with Selenium.

Well, I tried this with my Selenium RC setup, testing one page. In my setup, two beacons are sent by YSlow to the Show Slow database but the urls recorded,

http://localhost:3000/selenium-server/core/Blank.html?start=true
and
chrome://src/content/RemoteRunner.html?sessionId=2d7695881a3881f940ada5bc889a6dee&multiWindow=true&baseUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fintegrate.crashingdaily.com&debugMode=false&driverUrl=http://localhost:3000/selenium-server/driver/

are not the ones for the page under test. Neither report generated from selenium matches the report I get from the standalone browser so it’s not just a matter of the url being misreported to Show Slow.

disappointing.
