Create a list of sample pages for testing

by on 13 December 2020 in release-notes

Having a representative sample of pages to check as I make changes to the blog will be useful for a few reasons.

I can…

  1. check pages are building building correctly as I move to Eleventy and Netlify
  2. check CSS styling when I setup visual regression testing
  3. check for accessibility issues when I do some manual and automatic accessibility testing
  4. have a list of different kinds of pages in my style guide for future reference

How I’ve picked my list of sample pages

  • Key pages (homepage, blog post, list of posts)
  • Pages with unique layouts or templates
  • Popular pages (I’ll check this with Google Search Console)
  • Style guide (because it should contain almost every single component)
