Python bindings for Selenium

Project description

Author: David Burns

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.

assert "Yahoo!" in browser.title
elem = browser.find_element_by_name("p") # Find the query box
elem.send_keys("seleniumhq" + Keys.RETURN)
time.sleep(0.2) # Let the page load, will be added to the API
