capybara-webkit

A capybara driver that uses WebKit via QtWebKit.

Qt Dependency

capybara-webkit depends on a WebKit implementation from Qt, a cross-platform development toolkit. You'll need to download the Qt libraries to build and install the gem. You can find instructions for downloading and installing QT on the capybara-webkit wiki

CI

If you're like us, you'll be using capybara-webkit on CI.

On Linux platforms, capybara-webkit requires an X server to run, although it doesn't create any visible windows. Xvfb works fine for this. You can setup Xvfb yourself and set a DISPLAY variable, or try out the headless gem.

Usage

Add the capybara-webkit gem to your Gemfile:

gem "capybara-webkit"

Set your Capybara Javascript driver to webkit:

Capybara.javascript_driver = :webkit

Tag scenarios with @javascript to run them using a headless WebKit browser.

Contributing

See the CONTRIBUTING document.

About
