I'm pretty excited that my TPF Grant for improving Smolder has been accepted. Some of the improvements are minor, but others are pretty big. I've been watching the progress of TAP::Parser with enthusiasm since it means I can get rid of the YAML/XML transport hack that Smolder currently uses to get test results into the server. Hopefully this will also give some evangelism for TAP as a nice, simple and really human readable format for testing.
The grant also comes at a good time because my proposal for OSCon this year was accepted and I'll be talking about an updated testing toolkit for web applications. So Smolder will be all nice and shiny from the grant work before the talk. Which will be a nice chance to show it off and hopefully get more people using it.
I'll be updating this journal pretty regularly as I work on this grant, so stay tuned if you're interested.
