MozTrap Tests

Automated tests for the MozTrap web application. The following contributors have submitted pull requests to moztrap-tests:

Running Tests


You will need a version of the Java Runtime Environment installed


Before you will be able to run these tests you will need to have Python 2.6 installed.


The below instructions will install the required Python libraries into your global Python installation. If you work on multiple Python projects that might end up needing different versions of the same libraries, you might want to follow sudo easy_install pip with sudo pip install virtualenv, and then create and activate a virtualenv (e.g. virtualenv moztrap-tests-env; source moztrap-tests-env/bin/activate) to create a clean "virtual environment" for just this project. Then you can pip install -r requiremenst/mozwebqa.txt in your virtual environment without needing to use sudo.

If you don't mind installing globally, just run

sudo easy_install pip

followed by

sudo pip install -r requirements/mozwebqa.txt


If you are running on Ubuntu/Debian you will need to first do

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

to install the required Python libraries.


Once this is all set up you will need to download and start a Selenium server. You can download the latest Selenium server from here. The filename will be something like 'selenium-server-standalone-2.5.0.jar'

To start the Selenium server run the following command:

java -jar ~/Downloads/selenium-server-standalone-2.5.0.jar

Change the path/name to the downloaded Selenium server file.

Running tests locally

To run tests locally it's a simple case of calling py.test from the moztrap-tests directory. You should specify the following argument for Selenium RC: --api=rc

The base URL should be a valid instance of MozTrap: the staging env is currently

py.test --api=rc --baseurl=

For other possible options, type py.test --help .

Writing Tests

If you want to get involved and add more tests then there's just a few things we'd like to ask you to do:

  1. Use the template files for all new tests and page objects
  2. Follow our simple style guide
  3. Fork this project with your own GitHub account
  4. Make sure all tests are passing, and submit a pull request with your changes
