Moving to markdown

Last updated: July 01, 2017

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve been working hard to shift our previous description fields which were HTML based to markdown. The reasons to shift are many – it’s easy, fast, clean and more.

It also enabled us to upgrade the editor we had to a simpler markdown editor, with better UI capabilities and fewer bugs. We were also able to enable rich editing in the steps’ descriptions and expected results, that was not part of the application before.

And in addition to all that, if you now export and import tests from and to PractiTest, the style remains, which makes it even easier to migrate data.

 

Anyways, to cut the story short, we’re markdown! Enjoy the rich editing in steps attributes, and the (almost) bugs free editor.

Take into account that old description fields (of tests, issues, requirements) were all migrated to markdown (from html). Let us know if you find any issues.
