Page Objects for Python
Page Objects are a testing pattern for websites. Page Objects model a page on your site to provide accessors and methods for interacting with this page, both to reduce boilerplate and provide a single place for element locators.
This project is an implementation of this pattern for Python using Selenium webdriver. It is agnostic to test harnesses and designed to help you build up libraries of code to test your sites.
>>> from page_objects import PageObject, PageElement >>> from selenium import webdriver >>> >>> class LoginPage(PageObject): username = PageElement(id_='username') password = PageElement(name='password') login = PageElement(css='input[type="submit"]') >>> >>> driver = webdriver.PhantomJS() >>> driver.root_uri = "http://example.com" >>> page = LoginPage(driver) >>> page.get("/login") >>> page.username = 'secret' >>> page.password = 'squirrel' >>> assert page.username.text == 'secret' >>> page.login.click()
$ pip install page_objects
This was originally part of the pkglib project at http://github.com/ahlmss/pkglib, it has been forked to retain history.
- Added feature: PageElements can now be contructed with context
- Deprecated page_element and mutli_page_element factory methods
- Added PageObject.get(uri) method, based off of the page’s root_uri attribute.
- Initial export from http://github.com/ahlmss/pkglib
