Welcome to 2021 OpenTAP Community! We hope you are as excited as we are about open source test automation, and OpenTAP, looking to the year ahead. In keeping with our mission to grow OpenTAP to become the de-facto standard for test automation in the T&M industry we are planning to introduce new functionality to visualize the health & vibrance of the community & ecosystem.
Over the coming months we will add graphs on the OpenTAP homepage that will visualize the installation count of each of the available OpenTAP packages in the repository, including the OpenTAP package itself. With this, it will be possible for the community to follow the adoption of the available plugins and as well track the popularity of your own contributions.
The anonymous ping that OpenTAP sends to the package repository during startup is a hash of the package names and versions installed as well as an anonymous ID to distinguish installations. For details take a look at the feature implementation in GitLab that is planned for V9.12 which is only a few weeks away.
Note that the feature is a configuration and can be disabled in the engine config file.
For The OpenTAP Package itself, we imagine something like the below:
Let us know if you have further ideas, questions or concerns. This is what the forum is all about.
Wherever in the world you are we hope you are staying safe and productive during these unique times and we look forward to your engagement & collaboration in the OpenTAP community!
