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 "don't reinvent a wheel and use standard Selenium, when it works and fix it, when Selenium annoys, mainly with waits and NoSuchElement exception".

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()

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

browser = BrowserDriver(webdriver.Chrome())
  • 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 # only here the WebDriver would `find_element`

init_web_element() returns a wrapper around Selenium WebElement, what has all standard WebElement's methods, but have two main advantages:

  1. Wrapped WebElement is going to be searched only when any method is called on it (as shown above).
  2. It has its own waits methods:
element1 = browser.init_web_element("#test")
element1.should.be_visible(timeout=4) # wait 4 seconds for element to be visible
  • selen-kaa is basically about next logic:
  1. It has BrowserDriver, which allows to use all standard Selenium methods and attributes to the WebDriver, but has additional logic for init_web_element() and init_web_element().
  2. init_web_element returns SeWebElement object, which has attributes of standard WebElement but with additional logic of lazy initialization, custom waits and conditions.
  3. init_web_element() returns SeElementsArray - a collection of SeWebElement objects with the same lazy initialization logic.
  • This library is highly customisable for extensions:
class MyElementWrapper(SeWebElement):
class MyElementsArray(SeElementsArray):

class Config(WebDriverConfig):

    WrappedElementType = MyElementWrapper
    WrappedElementArrayType = MyElementsArray

class MyDriverWrapper(BrowserDriver):

    def __init__(self, webdriver):
        self.config = Config()

So, you can add your own methods to selen-kaa main classes.
