Screenbeacon – Real Time Monitoring for Visual Web/App Design Problems
Ed: I am running a number of development projects with numerous coders involved and all of them are working on code which affects the layout of the sites/apps.
Its frustrating as hell when someone changes something, a merge happens and then the site CSS and layout is changed or broken, also when an asset is unavailable ie the CDN is not responding or there has been an image break somewhere so the images are not displaying.
Its even more frustrating when someone else tells me and I didn’t know.
Screenbeacon promises to detect when your sites are not displaying as normal across multiple browsers and devices and alert you and then give you access to the code via Github to review and identify the issue.
You can setup the “normal” view with a Chrome Plugin and then it will monitor for any changed to the “normal” view.
If you own a website/app or are responsible for DevOps its a great idea.
PS. Only thing you guys need to do is provide a Slack.com integration
