CoSMo releases KITE 2.0: More open-source code, easier to use, and what else, al for your use in testing for WebRTC apps?!

CoSMo Software is pleased to announce the release of KITE 2.0! Easier to use and with lots of new code open source, CoSMo strives to continue contributing to the WebRTC community and ecosystem.

What’s KITE?

In collaboration with Google, CoSMo has developed an open-source testing engine, KITE, and contributed it as the official tool to automate interoperability testing for webrtc.org.


KITE stands for Karoshi Interoperability Testing Engine

Because manually testing WebRTC interop previously felt like Karoshi : “death by overwork” in Japanese.

What’s new with KITE 2.0 ?

KITE 2.0 is no longer an expert tool made for experts. It’s been redesigned with a focus on ease of use, with step by step guides for installation and set up.

CoSMo also significantly extended KITE features to enable end-to-end automated testing for WebRTC apps and full infrastructure :

Do you know ?

A testing Grid is very tedious to maintain, especially when you need to support multiple platforms. CoSMo has set up an extensive Selenium Grid to relieve you from maintaining your own. CoSMo can offer running the Grid as a Service. Contact us for more information !
