This is a demo on how to setup selenium tests with the official selenium-webdriver library from scratch. The package also provide an nodejs executable runner for those who just want to try it out. This example includes the following:
There are many examples about how to write a few lines of code to get selenium webdriverjs working. Usually they show you how to get the code, create a driver, go to some website and grab the title to prove it works. However, in real applications we want to have something more organized and scalable, that's when the selenium based test frameworks come to help.
Despite the good parts, the problem with using these frameworks, say webdriverio or nightwatch, is they can be too complicated or overkill for a specific projects. They also have a lot dependencies that may not be well maintained, which could cause unstable test outcomes. More and more people went from using the test frameworks, to finally built one that best fit their requirements.
I want to show you it's actually not that hard to create a test runner that works well, with just a few dependencies besides selenium-webdriver, and highly customizable to fit your own needs.
For fork and customize the code, checkout the test.default.config.js for more details on available configurations. In the todo app, you can create your own test.config.js to overwrite the default one.
For direct download and use the test runner, simply run
npm install selenium-webdriver-runner
And you will be able to run the test by
selenium-webdriver-runner --config [your config file path]
