Python library provides interactive test report for selenium

Project description


Python library provides customized Test Report for selenium or any other automation framework


  • A htmllogger is designed inorder to provide customized logs for autumated tests.
  • So user can able to write step log and test case details.

Main Features:

  • Create an interactive html report for automation suite.
  • It can be easily integrated with unit testing frameworks eg. unittest,pytest
  • It provides three methods inorder to generate report for tests.
  • It combines execution result of all tests which are executed in batch.


pip install:

> pip install htmllogger


  1. You will have to initialise htmllogger object to start use of reporting functions.
  2. At the start of each test you have to use 'assert_testcase_log("Test_Case_name")',
  3. Inorder to detailing of testcase steps you will have to use 'assert_step_log('Test_step_details')'
  4. To handle failures you will write your test in 'Try Except' block and in except block call 'assert_step_fail_log(driver, str(e))' pass First argument as driver object to capture screenshot of failure. second argument is except object converted in string format.

Follow below examples for more understanding...


  1. Python - Unittest
import unittest
from selenium import webdriver
from htmllogger.Htmllogger import HTMlLogger
from selenium.webdriver.firefox.firefox_binary import FirefoxBinary

class InputFormsCheck2(unittest.TestCase):

    # Opening browser.
    def setUp(self):
        self.logger = HTMlLogger('Path of folder where we need to create report')
        binary = FirefoxBinary('Binary Path for your browser')
        self.driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_binary=binary,

    # Testing Single Input Field.
    def test_singleInputField(self):
        self.logger.assert_testcase_log("Test Single Input Field")   # ****Writting Test case Name
            pageUrl = ""
            driver = self.driver

            # Finding "Single input form" input text field by id. And sending keys(entering data) in it.
            eleUserMessage = driver.find_element_by_id("user-message")
            eleUserMessage.send_keys("Test Python")
            self.logger.assert_step_log("Entered text [Test Python] in [user-message] EditBox.")         # ****Writting step log
            # Finding "Show Your Message" button element by css selector using both id and class name. And clicking it.
            eleShowMsgBtn = driver.find_element_by_css_selector('#get-input > .btn')
            self.logger.assert_step_log("Clicked on [Show Message] Button.")                         # ****Writting step log
            # Checking whether the input text and output text are same using assertion.
            eleYourMsg = driver.find_element_by_id("display")
            assert "Test Python" in eleYourMsg.text
        except Exception as e:
            self.logger.assert_step_fail_log(driver, str(e))        # Capturing failure

    # Closing the browser.
    def tearDown(self):

# This line sets the variable “__name__” to have a value “__main__”.
# If this file is being imported from another module then “__name__” will be set to the other module's name.
if __name__ == "__main__":
