Atspi App Driver

Test driver for the Atspi-enabled applications using GirFFI. Takes care of boot and shutdown, and provides a handle on the GUI's main UI frame.

Usage

This driver assumes your application lives in bin/ and uses additional ruby code in lib/.

Say, your application is called foo. Then, in your tests, do something like this:

require 'atspi_app_driver'

describe 'The application' do
  before do
    @driver = AtspiAppDriver.new('foo')

    # This will boot `ruby -Ilib bin/foo`, wait for its main window to appear,
    # and focus it.
    @driver.boot
  end

  it 'does stuff' do
    # Fetch the main window's atspi object
    frame = @driver.frame

    # You can now interact with the window's objects

    # Select item matching /bar/ from combo box:
    box = frame.find_role :combo_box
    item = box.find_role :menu_item, /bar/
    box.get_action_name(0).must_equal 'press'
    box.do_action 0
    item.get_action_name(0).must_equal 'click'
    item.do_action 0

    # Fetch contents of a text box
    textbox = frame.find_role :text
    textbox.get_text(0, 100).must_equal 'Foo bar baz'

    # Quit application
    menu_item = frame.find_role :menu_item, /Quit/
    menu_item.do_action 0

    # Check exit status
    status = @driver.cleanup
    status.exitstatus.must_equal 0
  end

  after do
    # Ensure application is cleaned up
    @driver.cleanup
  end
end

Installation

gem install atspi_app_driver

Dependencies

Atspi App Driver needs atspi's GIR data, and needs to be able to interact with the application via atspi and atk. The below are suggested packages to install. Corrections are welcome, of course.

Debian

This should work on Debian unstable.

sudo apt-get install dbus
sudo apt-get install libgirepository1.0-dev gobject-introspection
sudo apt-get install gir1.2-atspi-2.0 libatk-adaptor

Ubuntu

Please try the instructions for Debian. This will probably not work on Ubuntu 12.04. Again, corrections and additions are welcome.

Other OS

To be determined. Please contribute back your experience in getting Atspi App Driver working on your favorite operation system.
