A lightweight wrapper around Selenium python repo.

Project description

A lightweight wrapper around Selenium Python.
It's a simple extension to standard Selenium. The Philosophy is "Use standard Selenium, when it works, and use additional methods, when Selenium annoys, mainly with waits".

Short Features Overview:

  • It is easy integrated with your existing Selenium code and
  • It is compatible with any standard Selenium methods.
    For instance:
# Your Selenium code
browser = webdriver.Chrome()
browser.get("https://www.seleniumhq.org/")

# with `selen-kaa`
from se_wrapper.browser_driver import BrowserDriver

browser = BrowserDriver(webdriver.Chrome())
browser.get("https://www.seleniumhq.org/")
# any methods from the WebDriver works!
element = browser.find_element_by_css(".test-class")

Besides standard Selenium, selen-kaa introduces more convenient way to interact with a web page and web elements through init_web_element() and init_web_elements():

  • you can freely create the web element in __init__(), as the WebDriver would search this element only at the time of interaction with it:
browser = BrowserDriver(webdriver.Chrome())

class MyPage:

    def __init__():
        # lazy creation of a web element
        self.element1 = browser.init_web_element("#test")
    
page = MyPage()
# even if `self.element1` has not been rendered yet on the web page, 
# it's safe, you would have no NoSuchElementException
browser.get("www.some.com")
page.element1.click() # WebDriver would `find_element` and click it only on this step

init_web_element() returns SeWebElement object, which has attributes of standard WebElement but with additional logic of lazy initialization, custom waits and conditions. init_web_elements() returns SeElementsArray - a collection of SeWebElement objects with the same lazy initialization logic.

element1 = browser.init_web_element("#test")
element1.should.be_visible(timeout=4) # wait 4 seconds until element becomes visible

elements = browser.init_web_elements(".test-class")
elements[0].should.have_exact_text(text="first element", timeout=4)
