Steps for web testing using selenium and planterbox

Project description

https://api.travis-ci.org/npilon/planterbox-webdriver.png?branch=master

A suite of steps for planterbox for web testing with Selenium

Usage

  1. Install planterbox and planterbox-webdriver: pip install planterbox planterbox-webdriver

  2. Add a unittest.cfg to your project that enables planterbox:

    [unittest]
    plugins = planterbox
    
    [planterbox]
    always-on = True
    

3. Create a package containing your tests; its __init__.py defines the steps you will have available in your .feature files. This package must be detected by nose2 as containing tests; see nose2’s docs for details.

  1. Add a “before” hook that sets up a webdriver for your tests:

    @hook('before', 'feature')
    def create_webdriver(test):
        from selenium import webdriver
        test.browser = webdriver.Firefox()
    
  2. from planterbox_webdriver.webdriver import * if you want steps that let you find elements in your tests with XPath

  3. from planterbox_webdriver.css_selector_steps import * for steps that let you find elements in your tests with jQuery-style CSS selectors

  4. Add a .feature file in this package containing tests specified using Gherkin. planterbox will turn these into appropriate test case objects and give them to nose to run.

  5. Run your tests: nose2
