Initial support for performance metrics: Collecting real-time metrics by running via PhantomJS. We injected javascript into PhantomJS to listen to onResourceRequested and onResourceReceived.  We could also track errors and timeouts.  You can see here how we tracked and summarized thisRead More →

Codeship – A Continuous Integration Platform in the cloud that fits your needs. Codeship + Redline13 – makes load testing easy and (almost) free. Codeship provides Basic and Pro.
