selenium webdriver wrapper to make manipulation easier.

Project description

About this module
selenium webdriver wrapper to make manipulation easier.

.. image::


* Support Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera, Firefox, PhantomJS
* Support remote webdriver.
* Easy to type aliases. (find_element_by_xpath => xpath, etc.)
* Wrapped WebdriverWait( ... ).until( ... ) pattern.
* Polling at the time of clicking or selecting.
* Wrapping chaining.

How to install
Requires python2.6 or later.
You need *pip* or *distribute* or *setuptools*::

$ pip install seleniumwrapper

or use easy_install::

$ easy_install seleniumwrapper

also you need selenium::

$ pip install selenium

Example to use

**create** function helps you to init webdriver and wrap it easily::

>>> import seleniumwrapper as selwrap
>>> br = selwrap.create("chrome")

**connect** function helps you to use remote webdriver and wrap it::

>>> br = connect("android", "http://localhost:9999", {"acceptSslCerts": True})

SeleniumWrapper delegate to its wrapped webdriver::

>>> br.get("")
<seleniumwrapper.wrapper.SeleniumWrapper object at 0x...>
>>> br.xpath("//div[@class='main'])
<seleniumwrapper.wrapper.SeleniumWrapper object at 0x...>

Setting **eager=True** to invoke find_elements::

>>> br.xpath("//a", eager=True)
<seleniumwrapper.wrapper.SeleniumContainerWrapper object at 0x...>

SeleniumContainerWrapper also delegate to its wrapped container::

>>> links = [i.get_attribute("href") for i in br.xpath("//a", eager=True)]

Each contents in SeleniumContainerWrapper also SeleniumWrapper::

>>> tds = [tr.xpath("//td", eager=True) for tr in br.xpath("//tr", eager=True)]

Basic API
* seleniumwrapper.create(drivername)
* seleniumwrapper.connect(drivername, executor, custom_capabilities)
Create webdriver instance and wrap it with SeleniumWrapper.

* unwrap
Retrieves WebDriver or WebElement from wrapped object::

>>> isinstance(br.unwrap, WebElement)

* parent

>>> price = br.by_tag("th", "Price").parent.by_tag("td").text

* performance
Returns window.performance wrapped object::

>>> performance = br.performance
>>> timing = performance.timing
>>> navigation = performance.navigation
>>> timing.loadEventEnd

* to_select
Convert wrapped WebElement to raw Select object::

>>> br.by_id('select_button').to_select.select_by_visible_text("hoge")

select method returns the same as below::

>>> = 'select_button').select_by_visible_text("hoge")

* alert
Returns Alert(switch_to_alert()) object::

>>> br.alert.accept()

* current_url
Returns current_url after loading page body::

>>> br.current_url

* timeout
Accessor for _timeout property.

>>> br.timeout
>>> br.timeout = 10
>>> br.timeout

* silent
Accessor for _silent property.

# default
>>> br.by_id("Hoge")
Traceback (most recent call last):
>>> br.silent = True
>>> br.by_id("Hoge") is None

* attr(name)
Shortcut to get_attribute::

>>> br.attr('href')

* click(timeout=3, presleep=0, postsleep=0)
Continue to polling until timeout or element is displayed and clickable::

>>> br.button("Send").click()

* scroll_to(x, y)
equivalent to javascript's scrollTo::

>>> br.scrollTo(0, 100)

* scroll_by(x, y)
equivalent to javascript's scrollBy::

>>> br.scrollBy(10, 10)

* scroll_into_view(jq_identifier, align_with_top=True)
find elements by jq_identifier and retrieve its first element and invoke scrollIntoView to it::

>>> var element = $('#hoge');
>>> element && element.scrollIntoView(true)

second argument is passed as javascript's boolean to scrollIntoView::

>>> br.scrollIntoView('#hoge', False)

* waitfor(type, target, eager=False, timeout=3)
See source::

>>> br.waitfor("xpath", "//input[@type='submit']")

* xpath(target, eager=False, timeout=3)
find_element_by_xpath(target, timeout)::

>>> buttons = br.xpath("//input[@type='submit' or @type='button']", eager=True)

* css(target, eager=False, timeout=3)
find_element_by_css_selector(target, timeout)::

>>> [li.text for li in br.css("ul li")]

* by_tag(self, tag, eager=False, timeout=3, \*\*attributes)
Returns specified tagged element with specified attributes optionally.::

>>> br.by_tag("link", rel="stylesheet")

* by_text(text, tag='*', partial=False, eager=False, timeout=3)
similar to find_element_by_link_text or find_element_by_partial_link_text, but this method can be applicable to any tag::

>>> br.by_text("Go back to Top Page", "a")

* by_class(target, eager=False, timeout=3)
find_element_by_class_name(target, timeout)::

>>> br.by_class("colored")

* by_id(target, eager=False, timeout=3)
find_element_by_id(target, timeout)::

>>> br.by_id("main_contents")

* by_name(target, eager=False, timeout=3)
find_element_by_name(target, timeout)::

>>> br.by_name("page_password")

* by_linktxt(target, eager=False, timeout=3, partial=False)
find_element_by_link_text(target, timeout). if partial=True, then find_element_by_partial_link_text::

>>> br.by_linktxt("Go back to", partial=True)

* href(partialurl=None, eager=False, timeout=3):
find_element_by_xpath("//a", timeout). if partialurl was given, search 'a' tag which href contains partialurl::

>>> phplinks = br.href(".php", eager=True)

* img(alt=None, ext=None, eager=False, timeout=3)
find_elements_by_xpath("//img", timeout)::

>>> br.img(alt="I am sorry", ext="sorry.gif")

* button(value, eager=False, timeout=3)
find_element_by_xpath("//input[@type='submit' or @type='button' and @value='{}']".format(value), timeout)::

>>> br.button("Send this form").click()

* checkbox(self, eager=False, timeout=3, \*\*attributes)
Returns 'input' element type='checkbox'::

>>> br.checkbox(name='checked_value', id='hoge')

* radio(self, eager=False, timeout=3, \*\*attributes)
Retuns 'input' element type='radio'.::

>>>'hoge', id='fuga').click()

* select(self, eager=False, timeout=3, \*\*attributes)
Returns Select(self.by_tag("select", eager, timeout, \*\*attributes) or their wrapped SeleniumContainerWrapper::

>>> [select.is_multiple for select in, name="hoge")]


* size
Returns length of wrapped iterable::

>>> br.img(eager=True).size

* sample(size)
Returns random.sample(self._iterable, size)::

>>> br.img(eager=True).sample(10)

* choice()
Returns random.choice(self._iterable)::

>>> br.img(eager=True).choice()
