Day 10

Let’s speak about ember-a11y-testing.

What It Does

The ember-a11y-testing addon is a wrapper round Deque Labs’
axe-core accessibility(a11y) testing engine that helps you establish accessibility points in your Ember app & supplies helpful info on remedy them.

Why I Like It

Like a lot of you on the market, I too developed webapps with out realizing the affect that accessible apps can have on customers. In truth, I
began studying about a11y issues via this addon after I added it to a couple apps that I used to be engaged on when this addon bought
launched again in 2015.

Whereas there’s extra to constructing accessible apps than automated instruments (like this addon) will help with, it does assist be sure that
widespread a11y violations are captured earlier than they will make their strategy to customers.

The very best half about this addon is that it helps you to conditionally flip off elements or the whole violation report in order that you do not have
to really feel overwhelmed once you add this to an current app. Within the groups I’ve labored with, we often add an surroundings variable to regulate
that setting in order that we are able to work on addressing these violations at any time when we are able to & run a variation of the nightly check run on CI with the flag enabled to examine if the violation depend hasn’t elevated for the reason that earlier run.

This addon is Octane-ready. Give it a attempt in the present day & start your a11y journey with it.

Do you utilize this addon? Or one prefer it? We might love to listen to about Ember addons that deliver you pleasure!
