We have more or less stabilized the early version of our app testing platform. A few issues have been ironed out and now it is ready for bulk use. So, folks, meet Explore. The app testing platform we had been talking about for the past couple of months.
Before we begin, let us tell you what Explore is not:
- It is not an alternative to the Firefox Marketplace. It does not ever aim to be.
- It does not provide access to privileged and certified APIs for apps that are hosted here.
Simply put, Explore is currently a budding platform where you quickly test your responsive web site on Firefox OS with a few clicks, saving you about 15 precious minutes that you would have spent creating a manifest for your app and pushing it to your device. It is still in an early phase, and we plan to make it into a full blown testing suite for developers to test their apps. Half a year down the line, we see Explore as the necessary collaborative QA pass before you push your apps to the Firefox Marketplace.
We’re taking things seriously
Oh, and we’ve started the process of incorporation. For now, we will be based out of a shared office space in Bangalore (but honestly, we always work remote). Applait is not just an idea now. It is real. Growing up each day. The legal system, well, is as legal systems go, very slow. So, hopefully, we will be a legal entity soon! Watch out for updates!
