A Farewell to Twist

ThoughtWorks Studios will stop developing or supporting our test automation tool Twist in 2015.  We will continue to support Twist until December 1, 2015. After this date, we will no longer make any enhancements, bugfixes or provide support for Twist. You can read more about our reasons for this here.

Thoughtworks has built a new open source test automation tool - Gauge. Gauge is a lightweight cross-platform automation tool that has a first class command line interface. It has an extremely modular plugin supported architecture, which make it very flexible and scalable. It’s got the benefits of Twist like rich IDE integration and refactoring across layers, and more. It comes with support for multiple languages and IDEs.

We would like our Twist customers to move to Gauge. Twist was just the beginning, it gets much better with Gauge. If you’re a Twist customer, we will support you and help you migrate to Gauge. We have an automated migration process to enable this. You can read more about it here or you can email us at

Gauge will soon be announced publicly. It is currently in private Beta. If you would like to know more about Gauge, let us know:
