Selenium WebDriver is an open source project that exposes an API
for browser automation, among other things.
is a set of Perl bindings to that API that allow you to write
automated browser tests in Perl, taking advantage of Selenium's strong
$ cpanm Selenium::Remote::Driver
To install from this repository, clone it, get
$ dzil installdeps --missing | cpanm $ dzil install
use Selenium::Remote::Driver; my $driver = Selenium::Remote::Driver->new; $driver->get('http://www.google.com'); print $driver->get_title(); $driver->quit();
This module uses
LWP::Protocol::PSGI to facilitate unit
LWP::Protocol::PSGI overrides the LWP HTTP/HTTPS & this allows
us to "mock" the interaction with WebDriver Server. In regular
instances you should be running the tests against the mocked
recording, which are stored in t/mock-recordings. If you want to run
the tests live against the WebDriver server, set an environment
variable WD_MOCKING_RECORD to 1. This will force the unit tests to run
tests against the WebDriver server & also save the traffic
There is a short script that will handle the environment variable and generate recordings for you:
$ perl t/bin/generate-recordings.pl
After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command.
$ perldoc Selenium::Remote::Driver $ perldoc Selenium::Remote::WebElement
