Socorro Tests

Automated tests for the Socorro web application.

Running Tests


You will need a version of the Java Runtime Environment installed


Before you're able to run these tests, you'll need to have Python 2.6 installed.


easy_install pip

followed by:

sudo pip install -r requirements.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.x.x.jar', where "2.x.x" is the latest shipping version #.

To start the Selenium server run the following command:

java -jar ~/Downloads/selenium-server-standalone-2.x.x.jar

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

Running tests locally

  1. To run tests locally, simply call py.test from the Socorro-tests directory

  2. You should specify the following argument for Selenium RC: --api=rc

  3. The base URL should be a valid instance of crash-stats-dev: --baseurl=

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

For other instructions, type py.test --help.

If you want to get involved and add more tests, then there are just a few things we'd like to ask that you 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
