Porting of the Galen Framework API to Python

Project Description

Porting of the Galen Framework API to Python.

This project is a porting the Galen Framework Java API to the Python language.

The Python Galen API is made out of three parts. An example of usage is shown below.

Galen Remote WebDriver

driver = GalenRemoteWebDriver("http://localhost:4444/wd/hub", desired_capabilities=DesiredCapabilities.CHROME)

As explained above the API also expose a version of RemoteWebDriver API.

Check Layout API

Galen().check_layout(driver, "specs/" + specs, included_tags, excluded_tags)

This part of the API resemble closely the checkLayout() method as it is defined in the Java GalenApi class.

Hierarchical reports fluent API

TestReport("A galenpy test").add_report_node(info_node("Running layout check for: " + test_name).with_node(warn_node('this is just an example')).with_node(error_node('to demonstrate reporting'))).add_layout_report_node("check " + specs, check_layout_report).finalize()

The example above shows how to build a report in a hierarchical form by adding report nodes in a fluent interface fashion. After chaining the various nodes types such as info, warning or layout report, a call to the method finalize() is done to create a test report that is added to the list of reports.

Generating the report


At the end of the Galen Layout validation, the report is generated in the given folder through the call of another Galen API method.

More examples

A separate project showing the usage of galenpy can be found at galen-sample-py-tests.
