se-runner-browserstack-example

Ready to run example using se-runner with grunt-se-runner and se-runner-framework-jasmine towards BrowserStack

Installation

Fork and/or clone, run npm install and make changes as needed.

NPM package

Overview

Gruntfile.js

The grunt file will begin by starting a tunnel to BrowserStack (using the BrowserStackLocal binary) and then start executing the specified tests.

In the beginning of the file there are two placeholders; [BrowserStackUser] and [BrowserStackApiKey]. There you will have to input your BrowserStack credentials.

Config folder

Contains the BrowserStack capabilities configurations, i.e. which browsers & devices to test against.

Server folder

The server folder is what is being exposed through BrowserStackLocal. Files in here will be made available in BrowserStack over HTTP (using the address: http://[BrowserStackUser].browserstack.com/).

For instance, this example has a simple test harness (harness.html) which sets up a simple HTML5 video that the tests can check against.

Test folder

Holds a few simple sample tests that load up the test harness and checks that a few things occurred.

Notes

  • This example is made to be run on a Windows machine. To use something else you have to download the appropriate BrowserStackLocal binary and place it in the server/ folder.
  • If you don't need to test local files but a page accessible over the internet you can remove the steps that start the BrowserStack tunnel.
  • If you need to test an internal page that you don't have locally the tunnel can be set up as a proxy. Check the BrowserStackLocal binary's help section for command syntaxt to do this.

Contributing

In lieu of a formal style guide, take care to maintain the existing coding style.
