Run a simple selenium server suitable for protractor and grunt-mocha-protractor.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-selenium-simple --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


You need to install selenium first, I use this plugin to run protractor, protractor has an installer for selenium and chromedriver. Then you need to place chromedriver in the system path (or pass the driver location as argument, but I didn't find how to do that).

The "selenium" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named selenium to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  selenium: {
    options: {
      jar: './selenium/selenium-server-standalone-2.35.0.jar',
      port: 4444
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.


this plugin pass options to the selenium server like that:

require('selenium-webdriver/remote').SeleniumServer(options.jar, options);


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
