Python bindings for Selenium

Project description


Miki Tebeka <>

Selenium Python Client Driver is a Python language binding for Selenium Remote Control (version 1.0 and 2.0).

Currently the remote protocol, Firefox and Chrome for Selenium 2.0 are supported, as well as the Selenium 1.0 bindings. As work will progresses we’ll add more “native” drivers.

See here for more information.


Python Client

pip install -U selenium

Java Server

Download the server from

java -jar selenium-server-standalone-2.0a4.jar


from selenium.remote import connect
from selenium import FIREFOX
from selenium.common.exceptions import NoSuchElementException
from time import sleep

browser = connect(FIREFOX) # Get local session of firefox
browser.get("") # Load page
assert browser.get_title() == "Yahoo!"
elem = browser.find_element_by_name("p") # Find the query box
sleep(0.2) # Let the page load, will be added to the API
except NoSuchElementException:
    assert 0, "can't find seleniumhq"


Coming soon, in the meantime - “Use the source Luke”
