A Gwen interpreter that enables teams to quickly automate front end web tests and robotic online processes with Gherkin feature specifications. A web DSL interacts with Selenium under the covers for you so you don't have to do any of that programming or technical development work. It supports all the standard web element locators provided by Selenium and additionally allows you to inject JavaScript in places where dynamically locating web elements or running functions on pages may be necessary.

Why Gwen-web?

So you can drive automation with Gherkin features like this..

   Feature: Google search

  Scenario: Perform a google search
      Given I have Google in my browser
       When I do a search for "Gwen automation"
       Then the first result should open a Gwen page writing Gwen Meta features like this..

   Feature: Google search meta

  Scenario: I have Google in my browser
      Given I start a new browser
       When I navigate to ""
       Then the page title should be "Google"

  Scenario: I do a search for "<query>"
      Given the search field can be located by name "q"
       When I enter "$<query>" in the search field
       Then the page title should contain "$<query>"

  Scenario: the first result should open a Gwen page
      Given the first match can be located by css selector ".r > a"
       When I click the first match
       Then the current URL should contain "gwen-interpreter"

..with no Page Objects or Selenium coding required!
