Pixelmatch is a lightweight and efficient npm package for image comparison and visual regression testing.

Pixelmatch is particularly useful for automated testing of UI components and ensuring visual consistency across different versions of an application.

Compared to alternative solutions like Blink-diff or Resemble.js, Pixelmatch stands out for its speed and accuracy in detecting even the smallest differences between images.
