Squish is a commercial 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.[3][4] 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 (AUT) by injecting a module into it that provides a TCP/IP connection between the AUT and the program running the test.[1] Both components work on Windows, Linux, several Unix variants, Mac OS X,[1] iOS, Android, Windows CE and QNX and other RTOSes.[citation needed]

As of version 6.0, the Squish GUI Tester fully integrates support for behavior-driven development (BDD) and testing extended by special functionality to apply this to GUI tests. Squish is compatible with the Gherkin (domain-specific language) used in tools such as Cucumber.[citation needed]

Squish is shipped with the full source code.[4]

According to Froglogic, Squish is used by more than 3,000 companies.[5]

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