Installer for chromedriver.

Project description


Downloads and installs the chromedriver binary version 127.0.6501.0 for automated testing of webapps. The installer supports Linux, MacOS and Windows operating systems.

Alternatively the package chromedriver-binary-auto can be used to automatically detect the latest chromedriver version required for the installed Chrome/Chromium browser.


Latest and fixed versions

From PyPI

pip install chromedriver-binary

From GitHub

pip install git+

Automatically detected versions

Please make sure to install Chrome or Chromium first and add the browser to the binary search path.

From PyPI

pip install chromedriver-binary-auto

To redetect the required version and install the newest suitable chromedriver after the first installation simply reinstall the package using

pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall chromedriver-binary-auto

From GitHub

pip install git+

If the installed chromedriver version does not match your browser's version please try to empty pip's cache or disable the cache during (re-)installation.


To use chromedriver just import chromedriver_binary. This will add the executable to your PATH so it will be found. You can also get the absolute filename of the binary with chromedriver_binary.chromedriver_filename.


from selenium import webdriver
import chromedriver_binary  # Adds chromedriver binary to path

driver = webdriver.Chrome()
assert "Python" in driver.title

Exporting chromedriver binary path

This package installs a small shell script chromedriver-path to easily set and export the PATH variable:

$ export PATH=$PATH:`chromedriver-path`
