Mozillians Tests

Automated tests for the Mozillians web application. The following contributors have submitted pull requests to Mozillians-tests:

Running Tests


You will need a version of the Java Runtime Environment installed


Before you will be able to run these tests, you will need to have Python 2.6 installed (or a newer, stable version).


easy_install pip

followed by

sudo pip install -r requirements/mozwebqa.txt


If you are running on Ubuntu/Debian you will need to do following first

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-x.x.x.jar'

To start the Selenium server run the following command:

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

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

Running tests locally

To run tests locally, it's a simple case of calling py.test from the Mozillians-tests directory
You should specify the following argument for the Selenium rc: --api=rc
The base URL should be a valid instance of mozillians-dev: --baseurl=

py.test --credentials=~/credentials.yaml

For other instructions type py.test --help .

Writing Tests

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