Lettuce steps for Web Testing with Selenium 2

lettuce_webdriver provides a set of steps for use with the Cucumber BDD Python port lettuce using the selenium 2.8 or higher Python package.

The included matchers and syntax is inspired heavily by cucumber_watir.


Setting Up lettuce_webdriver

In your lettuce file, add an include statement for lettuce to learn about the additional step definitions provided by lettuce_webdriver and a setup that creates the selenium browser desired:

from lettuce import before, world
from selenium import webdriver
import lettuce_webdriver.webdriver

def setup_browser():
    world.browser = webdriver.Firefox()


lettuce stories are written in the standard Cucumber style of gherkin. For example:

Scenario: Filling out the signup form
  Given I go to ""
   When I fill in "Name" with "Foo Bar"
    And I fill in "Email" with ""
    And I fill in "City" with "San Jose"
    And I fill in "State" with "CA"
    And I uncheck "Send me spam!"
    And I select "Male" from "Gender"
    And I press "Sign up"
   Then I should see "Thank you for signing up!"
