Webdriver/selenium 2.0 javascript bindings for nodejs Build Status

A WebDriver module for nodejs. Either use the super easy help commands or use the base Webdriver wire protocol commands.

It is written so its easy to add new protocol implementations and add helper commands so make testing easier. Each command resides as one file inside the node module folder which makes it easy to extend.

The two main reasons for this projects are:

1) Ease of use - Writing tests with webdriver should be very easy

2) Easy to extend - Adding helper functions, or more complicated sets and combinations of existing commands, should also be very easy.

How to install it

Either download it from github or use npm:

npm install webdriverjs

Example of webdriverjs

Run selenium server first:

java -jar node_modules/webdriverjs/bin/selenium-server-standalone-2.31.0.jar

You can use any nodejs test framework as well as any BDD/TDD assertion library.

example using Mocha and Chai

describe('my webdriverjs tests', function(){

    this.timeout(99999999);
    var client = {};

    before(function(){
            client = webdriverjs.remote(options);
            client.init();
    });

    it('Github test',function(done) {
        client
            .url('https://github.com/')
            .getElementSize('.header-logo-wordmark', function(err, result) {
                expect(err).to.be.null;
                assert.strictEqual(result.height , 30);
                assert.strictEqual(result.width, 94);
            })
            .getTitle(function(err, title) {
                expect(err).to.be.null;
                assert.strictEqual(title,'GitHub · Build software better, together.');
            })
            .getElementCssProperty('class name','subheading', 'color', function(err, result){
                expect(err).to.be.null;
                assert.strictEqual(result, 'rgba(136, 136, 136, 1)');
            })
            .call(done);
    });

    after(function(done) {
        client.end(done);
    });
});

webdriverjs howto

Webdriverjs has just a few methods. Most of the methods you will use regurarly are the methods available from the client. To begin using Webdriverjs you just need to create a client. And to create a client, just do the following:

var webdriverjs = require("webdriverjs"); // You load the module as usual
var client = webdriverjs.remote({}); // To create a client you just call the remote method

The remote method takes an object with the options needed to create the client. The available options are which capabilities the client should have. Here is an example:

var client = WebdriverJS.remote({
    desiredCapabilities: {}, // read more below
    singelton: false, // boolean, default true
    logLevel: 'silent' // string, default is 'verbose' but it can also be 'silent' (read more below)
});

Options

desiredCapabilities

Type: Object
Default capabilities:

browserName: 'firefox',  // options: firefox, chrome, opera, safari
version: '',
javascriptEnabled: true,
platform: 'ANY'

If selenium can't find the browser binary, add the path as attribute in your desiredCapabilities object.

for Firefox:

'firefox_binary': <path to binary>
//e.g. '/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox'

for Chrome:

'chrome.binary': <path to binary>

for Opera:

'opera.binary': <path to binary>

for Safari:

'safari.binary': <path to binary>

logLevel

Type: String
Default: verbose
Options: verbose | silent | command | data | result

webdriverjs.endAll

If you wish to end all sessions, you can call the endAll method:

require("webdriverjs").endAll(callback);

Where callback is an optional parameter. This method can be used if you run lots of tests, and you want to make sure that all sessions on your selenium server are closed when you are done. Usually its enough to close each client with its end() method, but if you, for some reason, want to make sure that no sessions are open, use endAll(). (note: this method is also available from the client returned from .remote() as well, but its the same as webdriverjs.endAll())

webdriverjs.sessions

To get a list of all open sessions, you can call:

require("webdriverjs").sessions(callback);

which wil return an array with all sessions from selenium (note: this method is also available from the client returned from .remote() as well, but its the same as webdriverjs.sessions()).

Extending

If you which to extend with your own set of commands there is a method called addCommand available from the client object:

var client = require("webdriverjs").remote();

// create a command the returns the current url and title as one result
// just to show an example
client.addCommand("getUrlAndTitle", function(callback) {
    this.url(function(err,urlResult) {
        this.getTitle(function(err,titleResult) {
            var specialResult = {url: urlResult.value, title: titleResult};
            if (typeof callback == "function") {
                callback(err,specialResult);
            }
        })
    });
});

client
    .init()
    .url('http://www.github.com')
    .getUrlAndTitle(function(err,result){
        expect(err).to.be.null;
        assert.strictEqual(result.url,'https://github.com/');
        assert.strictEqual(result.title,'GitHub · Build software better, together.');
    })
    .end();
