Using Reports

After saving your report as a .PDF or .HTML, results can be viewed by navigating to the results folder location. Below is a screen capture of an interactive HTML report.

Customizing Report Templates

Reports are based on JSON data outputs from Imatest. Reports are generated using the Mako templating language, which allows custom HTML to be generated using output data. The mako “context” consists of JSON data fed into the rendering system.

Imatest 5.0 Includes default templates that render summary & detailed overviews of Imatest module runs. The HTML versions of these include JavaScript interactivity facilitated by a number of included frameworks such as jQuery, jQuery-mobile, jQuery-panzoom, JsonPath. Charts and graphs are generated using Plotly.js which is based off D3.js.

Printable PDF reports are generated from the HTML templates using wkhtmltopdf. Interactivity can be removed from the print version using CSS media query attributes on dynamic elements.

You can modify the report files by editing the scripts that are found in the depends folder:

Windows: C:\ProgramData\Imatest\mcr_cache\5.2\Master\mcrCache9.6\imates0\imatest\depends\ImatestToolbox\report

Linux: /usr/local/Imatest/v5.2.5/Master/imatest_mcr/imatest/depends/ImatestToolbox/report
