A fixture for working with SauceLabs' services.

Project description

A Python fixture for working with SauceLabs’ services.

For more information see the Launchpad project page.

Getting started

Use like any other fixture:

from saucelabsfixture import (

capabilities = {...}

def test_something(self):
    connect = self.useFixture(SauceConnectFixture())
    on_demand = SauceOnDemandFixture(
        capabilities, connect.control_url)
    driver = on_demand.driver

This will start up a Connect service using your credentials (see below). It will also download Sauce-Connect.jar if it’s not already available. The driver will be set up to send commands via the secure tunnel that the Connect service provides.

Credentials for the Connect service

Credentials for the Connect service can be passed into the SauceConnectFixture constructor, but otherwise they can be put into a file in your home directory:

$ mkdir -p ~/.saucelabs/connect
$ touch ~/.saucelabs/connect/credentials
$ chmod go-rwx ~/.saucelabs/connect/credentials
$ echo "$username $api_key" > ~/.saucelabs/connect/credentials
