Visual tests, also called visual regression tests, catch bugs in UI appearance. They work by taking screenshots of every story and comparing them commit-to-commit to identify changes.
To make Wingsuit work with visual regression tests you can configure the seed of the faker plugin with the environment
The seed must be a numeric value.
With a configured seed the faker plugin will generate the same faked values. So a visual testing tool won't detect text changes any more.
Here an example to export your patterns to chromatic with the same faker values:
"chromatic": "cross-env-shell STORYBOOK_WINGSUIT_FAKER_SEED=4242 \"npx chromatic --project-token TOKEN\""
