Web MIDI API test suite released

Jussi Kalliokoski, a developer in the W3C's Audio Working Group, has just posted the first version of a new Web MIDI API test suite for those wishing to begin writing browser-based MIDI implementations.

Kalliokoski wrote in his post to the working group's listserve:

I have now released a test suite for the Web MIDI API as it's currently specified. It's a really basic test suite to see if the features are there, not if they work that correctly (as JS has no other means of accessing MIDI devices, proper functionality testing is almost impossible). The test obviously requires user input for getting the MIDIAccess object, otherwise it's quite automatic.

Well, what are you waiting for? Have at it!
