[Feature Request] Dump results to text file.
This is a pretty low tech request but could you add an option to dump the test results to a text file with the numerical value of the results containing just the machine sumary, test name, results or have a local xml like the one that is generated now in the test-results that does not have the graphs, but just the test name and the numerical result. The reason being is that even though the graphs are nice, printing them requires alot of ink / toner and paper. It would be nice if there was a printer friendly version so a person can print out a 1 page summary and with the graphs it makes it a pretty big print job for suites like universe.
I've been thinking about this... There's a few options / discussion items.
- Would having an alternate CSS style for the XSL results viewer suit your needs? So that when you go to print media, the graphs will be removed, etc?
- An option in user-config.xml for the user to decide whether they want to see graphs at all?
- Just dumping a text version of the results in the test-results/NAME/ folder?
Well doing a css style would allow for side by side comparison when a comparison test is ran, but having the system descriptions on each run could take up half a page as more comparisons are added on.
