4.7.0 (April 27, 2023)

  • Default ID
    The Python API package now sets the default ID in the JSON results file to "check" instead of null as before. The highlighted line in the following (shortened) example shows the change:

    {
      "type": "axe-devtools-result",
      "name": "axe-run",
      "id": "check",  "platform": {}
      ...
    }

    (Many lines were deleted in the above example.)

    This change makes Python results compatible with the other APIs.

  • Large Results

    Limits have been increased and the Python package can now process much larger results.
