Using methods from the "common" folder.
Use these Python decorators with your test methods as needed:
@retry_on_exception(tries=6, delay=1, backoff=2, max_delay=32)
Example demonstrating a rate-limited printing functionality:
import unittest from seleniumbase import decorators class MyTestClass(unittest.TestCase): @decorators.rate_limited(3.5) # The arg is max calls per second def print_item(self, item): print(item) def test_rate_limited_printing(self): print("\nRunning rate-limited print test:") for item in range(1, 11): self.print_item(item)
Part 2: String/Password Obfuscation, Encryption, and Decryption
Often in your tests, you may need to login to a website to perform testing. This generally means storing passwords in plaintext formats. For security reasons, that may not be an optimal solution. For this reason, encryption/obfuscation tools have been built here to help you mask your passwords in your tests. It's not a bulletproof solution, but it can keep anyone looking over your shoulder during test creation from getting your login passwords if they don't have your encryption key, which is stored in a separate file.
First, set your custom encryption/decryption key in your local clone of settings.py. (If you modify they key later, you'll need to encrypt all your passwords again.)
Next, use obfuscate.py to obfuscate/encrypt passwords into coded strings:
python obfuscate.py Enter password to obfuscate: (CTRL-C to exit) Password: ********* Verify password: Password: ********* Here is the obfuscated password: $^*ENCRYPT=RXlYMSJWTz8HSwM=?&#$
(You can also use unobfuscate.py to encrypt passwords without having them masked while typing them. Or you can use it to decrypt an obfuscated pasword.)
- Finally, in your tests you can now decrypt obfuscated passwords for use in login methods like this:
from seleniumbase.common import encryption ... password = encryption.decrypt('$^*ENCRYPT=RXlYMSJWTz8HSwM=?&#$')
(You'll notice that encrypted strings have a common start token and end token. This is to help tell them apart from non-encrypted strings. You can customize these tokens in settings.py. The current default setting is
$^*ENCRYPT= for the start token and
?&#$ for the end token.)
