  • Migrating Selenium system tests to Cuprite
    10 projects | | 4 Oct 2021
    In our project, we’ve been running system tests (then called rather "Feature tests") since around 2016. System tests use a real browser in the background and test all layers of a Rails application at once: from the database all the way up to the nuances of JavaScript loaded together with the web pages. Back then, we wrote our system tests using Capybara with Poltergeist, a driver that ran a headless Phantom JS browser. Since this browser stopped being actively developed, we migrated our test suite to the Selenium / Webdriver wrapper around Chrome browser around ~2018. Chrome was itself fine for tests automation but the Selenium API was quite limited and we had to rewrite several Poltergeist features using 3rd party gems and tools.

    Selenium HQ is a framework and ecosystem that encapsulates a variety of tools and libraries for browser automation to provide an infrastructure for the W3C WebDriver specification—a platform and language-neutral coding interface compatible with all major web browsers. Nik_Tesla explains, "I recently got tasked with changing settings on hundreds of printers, and they have no central management or API. [Selenium] uses a chrome or firefox driver to automate browser actions. It works with several programming languages, but I'm using python to look at a csv of printer IPs and run through them all. Rather than something like AutoHotKey, which relies mostly on the position of the mouse and can get thrown off easily, this is scripted to look for the specific web element you point it at. You can even record it like a macro and view what the code would be for that part if you aren't sure what you need to interact with that element."
  • Automated Dapps Scrapping with Selenium and Metamask
    2 projects | | 28 Jul 2021
    To access Dapps users need to use a crypto wallet to connect with, this creates a new challenge for developers who want to scrap and/or test Dapps using tools like Selenium. In this post we will cover the basics on how to solve this using Python and Chromium, however, the principles described here can be applied using any programming language and web browser automation tool.

    Check out the GUI automation chapter of Automate the Boring Stuff with Python. Another option would be to use a web driver like Selenium to control your web browser.

  • A Look at End-to-end Testing in Nightwatch v2.0
    4 projects | | 28 Jun 2021
    Meanwhile, the Selenium json-wire protocol has transition into the W3C Webdriver standard which is now implemented by all major browsers. As far as Nightwatch is concerned, the strategy hasn’t changed that much. In fact, I personally am even more confident to say that, as an open-source project, Nightwatch has now entered the next major phase in its development and maturity.
    4 projects | | 28 Jun 2021
    The task of interacting with browser internals was already handled by the Selenium project and working with the Selenium server via an HTTP based api was a straightforward task. And so Nightwatch was born by bringing together various existing tools and techniques into one easy-to-use integrated solution.
