Balin is a browser automation library for Kotlin. It's basically a Selenium-WebDriver wrapper inspired by Geb.

Status: Abandonware

Since I wrote Balin a couple of years ago, I have not had the opportunity to work under Kotlin's umbrella, much less use Balin itself. Thus, time has passed and the library has gotten dust, cobwebs and the like. Be aware of the fact the dependencies are already quite outdated and it's quite probable I'm not gonna be around updating dependencies or fixing unit tests. You're more than welcome to peek around and even use Balin, but there's no garantes of this library keeping up-to-date for modern developing/use. Heck, even JCenter doesn't exist anymore at this point.

Rationale

Geb is a wonderful library that allows its users exploit the power of the Selenium-WebDriver API with incredible ease. As a software developer who spends a lot of time working with browser automation, I've been lucky enough to work with Geb and am now learning Kotlin. I'm taking this chance to learn this new JVM-based language and to contribute to its ecosystem a tool that's very useful to me.

Usage

If you're curious about how to use this library, you can check out the following examples

Templates

The Balin-Cucumber-TestNg-Allure template can be of help in order to avoid the boilerplate required for Balin's integration with the most common frameworks used in software testing.

Documentation

JavaDoc and KDoc versions of Balin's API documentation can be found in the following locations:

Build system & framework integrations

Maven

<dependencies>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.github.epadronu</groupId>
    <artifactId>balin</artifactId>

</dependencies>

Gradle

dependencies {
  compile 'com.github.epadronu:balin:0.4.2'

Note

This project has been conceived for research purposes but I don't dismiss the possibility of making it a production-ready library if it gets to that point.
