What we like
Supports load testing and functional (assert) testing of APIs, message brokers, ecommerce systems, etc. Supports HTTP, WebSockets, Socket.io, HLS, file uploads, and other protocols via plugins. Reports p50, p95, p99, min and max. CI/CD runners to conduct continuous testing. Test scenarios written in code. Open source + cloud platform for distributed tests.
What we don't like
Can integrate with Playwright for headless browser testing, but this is experimental and the primary use case is backend testing.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
