Self-serve Chromatic

Sign up, setup, and subscribe without talking to sales

Chromatic’s vision is to make UI testing painless. Every feature is in service of simplifying the developer experience. This release makes it easier to demo and subscribe to Chromatic by yourself.

Self-serve encompasses all the improvements that allow developers to signup, setup, and subscribe without talking to sales. This puts more control at your fingertips while also helping us ship new features faster.

Note: Support isn’t going to change — the team and I are here to help you!

✅ 30-day free trial

Starting July 1, all new users and existing Early Access users will start on a 30-day unlimited free trial. The trial gives you full access to all Chromatic features, risk free. When the trial concludes subscribe to a plan to continue using Chromatic.

🎛 Self-serve subscription

The new billing screen puts account control at your fingertips. Subscribe to plans, change payment details, change billing email (who gets the invoices), and view past statements.

👀 See how companies use Chromatic

Get inspired by how teams at Priceline, Auth0, and Formidable combat UI bugs with Chromatic. We show how customers boost dev efficiency, ensure UI consistency, and automate costly manual QA with the new “use cases” screens.

🛠 Improvements and fixes

Chromatic is continuously improved with bug fixes and tweaks. Among the countless subtle updates here are the highlights.

Resource download notification

When we render a story we wait for up to 15s for any resources (typically images) to load. If they don’t load in that time, we end up taking a screenshot without them. This notification calls helps you understand why your snapshot may not look quite right.

Sync button

Sync your accounts list with GitHub, Bitbucket, or GitLab at the press of a button. This makes it smoother to add new accounts that you’ve recently given Chromatic access to.
