Project description

# Django Spectacles

![Django Spectacles](

![pip install django-spectacles](
[![Build Status](](

Write **end-to-end** tests in **YAML**, run them with **Python** and output your results in **Markdown**

# Installation

pip install django-spectacles

# Running spectals:

python spectacles/ --help

--driver TEXT Select the browser driver you would like to use
(phantomjs, chrome, firefox)
--spec-location TEXT A glob for finding spec files
--out-location TEXT path to the directory where we will output the
spec results
--screenshot-location TEXT path where we will save screenshots
--help Show this message and exit.


### Quickstart

The default project layout is like this:

|_ specs/ # put your yaml specs here
|_ reports/
|_ screenshots # any screenshots you take will be saved here
|_ specs # spec reports will be saved here

Let's create a quick spec:



- scenario: I'm feeling lucky
- goto: /
- screenshot: {}

- expect_elements :
- "#lst-ib": "search input"
- fill_fields:
- q: "testing"
- wait: 1
- click: "[name='btnG']"
- wait: 5
- wait_for_element : "#rcnt"
- screenshot:
widths: [375, 768, 990, 1200, 1600]


**Run your spec:**

python spectacles/


1. You should find a collection of screenshots at: `./reports/screenshots`


##I'm feeling lucky

* Go to: /
* ✓ Check that search input exists
* enter django-spectacles into field:q
* ✓ Check that [name='btnG'] exists
* Click button:
* waiting for #rcnt to load
* ✓ Element has loaded: #rcnt
* Click the first link
* ✓ Check that h3.r a exists
* Click button: GitHub - toast38coza/django-spectacles: Write Integration tests in ...



Some improvements I would like to ship in the near future:

[*] Remove dependency on Django
[] Print results
[*] Take arguments (e.g: domain, output directory, glob for yml files)
[*] Maybe we don't need to run this as a test?

**Note to self: deploying to pypi:**

1. Update version in
2. Upload to pypi:

python sdist upload -r pypi
