python-parallel-wd -- Run selenium test in multiple browsers easily - Python flavor


Build Status


pip install python-wd-parallel



Writing a test !

Start by importing the module

import wd.parallel

The test should be implemented as a unittest TestCase. So go ahead and do that

class Selenium2OnSauce(unittest.TestCase):

In the set up you should create your browsers configurations. Or you could just load them from a json file.

    def setUp(self):
        self.drivers = wd.parallel.Remote()

Now just write your test as you would for a unique browser. Test should be run on the self.driver attribute. Just use the @multiply decoration to run the test in all the browser you set up. Check out the selenium documentation for available methods.

    def test_sauce(self):
        self.assertTrue("I am a page title - Sauce Labs" in self.driver.title);
        self.driver.find_element_by_id('comments').send_keys('Hello! I am some example comments. I should appear in the page after you submit the form')

        comments = self.driver.find_element_by_id('your_comments')
        self.assertTrue('Your comments: Hello! I am some example comments. I should appear in the page after you submit the form' in comments.text)
        body = self.driver.find_element_by_xpath('//body')
        self.assertFalse('I am some other page content' in body.text)
        self.driver.find_elements_by_link_text('i am a link')[0].click()
        body = self.driver.find_element_by_xpath('//body')
        self.assertTrue('I am some other page content' in body.text)

The tear down method works just like the test cases. Just work as if there was one browser and add the @multiply decorator.

    def tearDown(self):

if __name__ == '__main__':

Supported Methods

Check out the python wd implementation it has all the documentation about actual tests.
