Testcontainers October Roundup
Hello! Welcome to the October edition of our Testcontainers newsletter. This edition is packed with exciting news about the latest features in Testcontainers Desktop (including the Embedded runtime!). We are also happy to share updates on Testcontainers Cloud, highlight the most recent releases of Testcontainers OSS libraries, and, of course, offer a variety of guides, blog posts, and live streams...
Tail logs and connect to a Testcontainers-based service
Testcontainers Desktop now lets you open a terminal and tail logs to any Testcontainers-based service. Both actions are available in the "services" menu.
Open a terminal to your container runtime
Testcontainers Desktop now makes it easy to "open a terminal" to your container runtime, whether you rely on Testcontainers Cloud or run your containers locally. The docker context is set automatically.
Manage Testcontainers Cloud access to your private registry
Testcontainers Cloud now lets you configure access to your private registry in the organization's "Settings" page. All desktop users and CI service accounts will automatically load the official configuration when they start, ensuring a turnkey experience.
Testcontainers September Roundup
Hello! Welcome to our September Testcontainers newsletter. In this edition, we're thrilled to unveil some fantastic new Testcontainers Desktop and Cloud features, enhancements to our open-source libraries, new blog posts, and last but not least, we want to share details about our Champions program...
Adopt Testcontainers Desktop as your container runtime (beta)
Testcontainers Desktop now embeds a lightweight and fast runtime, optimized for Testcontainers usage, on macOS 11 or later. To get started, simply select the "Embedded Runtime" in the menu then run your tests as usual to initialize it.
Clean up containers without manual docker commands
Testcontainers Desktop now includes a simple option to "Terminate containers" that cleans up all running Testcontainers-powered containers, while sparing other vanilla containers. This means you no longer need to remember a non-trivial `docker kill` command in the CLI when you would like to clean up reusable containers.
Link your test sessions to your CI pipeline
Your dashboards now link to the workflow that triggered a test session, such as a CI pipeline or job. To get started, simply set the TCC_WORKFLOW_KEY and TCC_WORKFLOW_URL environment variables.
Navigate from your CI to the test sessions in your dashboards
You can now quickly navigate to your Testcontainers Cloud dashboards via a direct link available in your logs and as a job summary in your GitHub Actions.
