LOOKING FOR BETA TESTERS
Beta testing opportunity
Between 2012 and 2016/17 I worked almost exclusively in getting designs files and implementing them as closely as possible to real living websites. During that time I learned a lot and made several mistakes on how to best take a static design and turn it into a real website that is usable, accessible and as close to the design as possible. Its no easy task for sure!
In the last 2 or so years I have been working with and assisting colleagues in my company in developing several layouts / designs for clients and out of that I started working on a solution that would help me make this process easier, and allow me to collaborate closely with the Designers in order to achieve the perfect end result.
Out of this need Bruni was born https://www.brunivisual.com/. Bruni is the culmination of my passion for Design, Visual testing and coding. I like to think it combines visual testing with Design and coding best practices such as Pull requests. The Idea is developers and designers can collaborate in designs to make sure the end result matches as closely as possible the desired spec from the original mockups.
Today I would love to share with you the first version of the project and invite anyone that is interested in trying it out to do so and in exchange give me feedback on what works, what does not work etc. I have many ideas where it can go but its still a very early version so would also love to share more individually where I see it possibly going.
I am looking forward to your thoughts and welcoming anyone that is interested to invite them to the platform.
Feel free to check the website, direct message me or sent contact via the site to test. I am not opening it up and definitely not charging for it since all I want at this stage is feedback!
Thanks a lot! Cheers

Hey João! Nice work on developing this tool! :)
I saw that you didn't implemented some basics principles of accessibility for a digital product.. its an important thing and should make your produto in conformance with some laws and your company is protected related to any issue with a disability user try to access..
Also you need to work a bit on the responsive layout for mobile and small screen sizes so the user can have access to your page in a fully way!
Again, all best and success to your project! I really like it!
Hello Maria, thanks for reaching out! I did try and put effort into accessibility for sure but I will not say it is 100% there and there are most certainly things I might have missed. I appreciate the callout though, if there are specific parts you have in mind feel free to direct message me. and I can address those more directly 🙏 (I already had replied here but for some reason the comment disapeared)
How do you treat the responsiveness of websites? Screenshot will only test a certain screensize?
Right now it tests the size that the mockup is made in, so if you have a mockup that is made with a 1920px it will do that. So the way to do (right now at least) some responsive testing is by adding a mobile mockup in a page (e.g. creating a project that has 2 pages one is desktop and one mobile) and that will indeed test a mobile version as well as the destkop one =) Thanks for the comment , important question indeed.
Hey, could you clarify what the tool is? Is it a visual testing tool?
Hello, Yes in its essence its a visual testing tool indeed. However visual regression testing tools tend to look at the previous "build" and compare to the curent build. this one is a bit different in the sense that its comparing a mockup to a website URL.
The end result however is very much what you tipically see with a visual testing tool like Percy or Chromatic
