A wrapper around selenium webdriver and some tools
Project DescriptionRelease History
This package provides tools and wrappers around selenium.webdriver.
We specially care about selenium.webdriver.PhantomJS, because:
- it’s easy to deploy, it’s a single executable, gp.recipe.phantomjs works
- it’s built on webkit
- it can be debugged with a Chromium / Chrome browser, incl. breakpoints
Things to watch out for:
- any single instance of PhantomJS acts as a single browser instance that means cookies and whatnot are shared if you intantiate more browsers for a single driver. Workaround could be to start more drivers.
- the headless browser is truly async, that means an AJAX click does NOT wait for the AJAX request to complete, you explicitely need to wait for it
- any single call to PhantomJS via selenium takes TIME
- zope.testbrowser supporting methods like getControl are slow now
- there are 2 options for setUp/tearDown, either the driver is started and torn down with the layer or with each test. Starting and stopping takes around 1.5-2 secs, so you decide whether you need separation or speed.
This is WORK IN PROGRESS
