A small library for simplifying a table object in selenium


If you have pip on your system, you can simply install or upgrade the Python bindings:

pip install selenium-datatable

Alternately, you can download the source code and run:

python install


A table object class implementation:

# -- FILE:
from import By
from selenium_datatable import DataTable, Column

class UsersTable(DataTable):
    rows_locator = (By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tbody > tr")
    headers_locator = (By.CSS_SELECTOR, "thead > tr > th")
    # columns
    last_name = Column(By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tr:nth-of-type({row}) td:nth-of-type(1)")
    first_name = Column(By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tr:nth-of-type({row}) td:nth-of-type(2)")
    email = Column(By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tr:nth-of-type({row}) td:nth-of-type(3)")
    due = Column(By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tr:nth-of-type({row}) td:nth-of-type(4)")
    web_site = Column(By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tr:nth-of-type({row}) td:nth-of-type(5)")
    delete_button = Column(By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tr:nth-of-type({row}) td:nth-of-type(6) a[href='#delete']")
    edit_button = Column(By.CSS_SELECTOR, "tr:nth-of-type({row}) td:nth-of-type(6) a[href='#edit']")

A page object class implementation:

# -- FILE:
from table import UsersTable

class HomePage:    
    items_list = UsersTable("id", "table1")

    def __init__(self, driver, url='http://localhost/tables'):
        self.driver = driver
        self.url = url           

    def open(self):


# -- FILE:
import unittest
from selenium.webdriver import Chrome
from home_page import HomePage

class TestTable(unittest.TestCase):

    def setUp(self):
        self.driver = Chrome() = HomePage(self.driver)

    def test_get_item_from_first_row(self):        
        item =        
        self.assertEqual(item.first_name.text, 'John')
        self.assertEqual(item.last_name.text, 'Smith')
        self.assertEqual(, '')

    def test_get_item_by_property(self):
        item ='Doe', first_name='Jason')    
        self.assertEqual(item.first_name.text, 'Jason')
        self.assertEqual(item.last_name.text, 'Doe')

    def test_number_of_rows(self):
        assert len( == 4

    def test_iterate_through_rows(self):
        for row in
            self.assertTrue(hasattr(row, 'last_name')) 

    def test_comprehension_list_slice(self):
        users = [row for row in[1:3]]
        self.assertEqual(len(users), 2)
        self.assertEqual(users[0].first_name.text, "Frank")
        self.assertEqual(users[1].first_name.text, "Jason")

    def tearDown(self):

The Container class is looking for a "driver" attribute in an owner class, but you can change that behaviour by overiding the attribute driver_attribute from the Container class.

class UserItems(Container):
    item = UserItem()
    rows_locator = ("css selector", "tbody > tr")
    headers_locator = ("css selector", "tbody > tr")    
    driver_attribute = "selenium"
