In this section, we will not look in such detail, this is going to be a summary of sorts. By the way, this command queue example can be found in Loadero’s public GitHub examples repository here.

  • Properly Configuring Nightwatch to Run Geckodriver

    For Firefox-specific options (like command-line args and browser about:config prefs), the property to use is moz:firefoxOptions. That is shipping in the latest default nightwatch.conf.js file, as is the parallel goog:chromeOptions for chromedriver. But if you've got a legacy configuration file—like I did—you'll want to update the old chromeOptions property, too.

    I’ll get right to it: both the stock Nightwatch configuration file (as of at least Nightwatch v. 2.0.9) and the Nightwatch docs are inaccurate for using the geckodriver web driver (specifically, v. 0.30.0) to run tests. Here is what you need to do, isolated to the firefox environment portion of the test_settings object in a nightwatch.conf.js file:

  • Visual Regression Test with Nigthwatch VRT
    4 projects | | 3 Nov 2021
    The definition of nightwatch-vrt is quite clear from its name. It is a VRT tool that works as an extension to nightwatch.js. Using nightwatch-vrt is pretty straightforward. You only need to invoke the screenshotIdenticalToBaseline function to make a comparison of the current screenshot with the respective baseline image. And if you look at the internal logic of this function then you will find that all it does is wait for an element to be present, then capture the screenshot of that element, compare it with the baseline, and finally return the comparison result. And if you look further into the image comparison logic then you will notice that nightwatch-vrt actually uses JIMP (JavaScript Image Manipulation Program) which is built with Javascript with no native dependencies.
