Watir implementation built on WebDriver's Ruby bindings. See

Build Status

API docs


require 'watir-webdriver'

browser = :firefox
browser.goto ""
browser.text_field(:name => 'q').set("WebDriver rocks!")
browser.button(:name => 'btnG').click
puts browser.url


The file in lib/watir/elements/generated.rb is autogenerated from the HTML5 spec. This is done by extracting the IDL parts from the spec and processing them with the WebIDL gem (link below).


watir-webdriver uses watirspec for testing. After cloning, you should fetch the submodule:

git submodule init && git submodule update

Specs specific to watir-webdriver are found in spec/*_spec.rb, with watirspec in spec/watirspec.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
