Squish is a commercial, functional, cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool that can test applications based on a variety of GUI technologies (see list below). It is developed and maintained by Froglogic.[1][2]


Squish is developed and maintained by Froglogic.[1] Version 1.0 was released on 18 November 2003. Squish uses property-based object identification (independent of screen position), and is able to record and replay test scripts written in JavaScript, Perl, Python, Ruby or Tcl. It is a two-component system, consisting of a runner, which interprets and executes scripts, and a server, which hooks in and controls the application under test. Server and runner communicate via network, using a proprietary protocol (QDataStream).[citation needed] Both components are completely cross-platform, and work on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Embedded Linux, Windows CE and QNX and other RTOSes.

According to Froglogic, Squish is used by more than 3,000 companies.[3]

In May 2012, Squish won Dr. Dobb's Jolt Productivity Award.[4]
