FlynnID registers Selenium nodes to a running Selenium Grid hub.


From PyPI:

$ pip install flynnid

From source:

$ python install

Running FlynnID

FlynnID requires either a configuration file in JSON format or command line arguments. Using a configuration file allows for registration of one or more multiple nodes, whereas the command line arguments only allow for registration of a single node.

For full usage details run the following command:

$ flynnid --help

Usage: flynnid config [options]

  --version          show program's version number and exit
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  -v, --verbose      increase verbosity
  --force            force registration of node(s)
  --hubhost=str      host selenium grid is listening on [default: localhost]
  --hubport=num      port selenium grid is listening on [default: 4444]
  --nodeconfig=path  configuration file for nodes to register.
  --nodehost=str     host selenium node is listening on [default: localhost]
  --nodeport=num     port selenium node is listening on [default: 5555]
  --browsername=str  name of browser available on node
  --browserver=str   version of browser available on node
  --platform=str     platform of node

Example: Registering a single node from the command line

flynnid --nodeport=8080 --browsername=android --browserver=2.3.3 --platform=ANDROID

Example: Registering multiple nodes from a configuration file

The following would register two AndroidDriver nodes on a local Selenium Grid hub:

flynnid config.json

Where config.json contains:

    "hub": {
        "host": "localhost",
        "port": 4444
    "nodes": [{
        "host": "",
        "port": 8080,
        "browser": {
            "name": "android",
            "version": "4"
        "platform": "ANDROID"
        "host": "",
        "port": 8080,
        "browser": {
            "name": "android",
            "version": "4"
        "platform": "ANDROID"
