node package manager




Install the latest published version using npm:

npm install browserstack-webdriver

In addition to the npm package, you will to download the WebDriver implementations you wish to utilize. As of 2.34.0, browserstack-webdriver natively supports the ChromeDriver. Simply download a copy and make sure it can be found on your PATH. The other drivers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari), still require the standalone Selenium server.

Running the tests

To run the tests, you will need to download a copy of the ChromeDriver and make sure it can be found on your PATH.

npm test browserstack-webdriver

To run the tests against multiple browsers, download the Selenium server and specify its location through the SELENIUM_SERVER_JAR environment variable. You can use the SELENIUM_BROWSER environment variable to define a comma-separated list of browsers you wish to test against. For example:

export SELENIUM_SERVER_JAR=path/to/selenium-server-standalone-2.33.0.jar
SELENIUM_BROWSER=chrome,firefox npm test browserstack-webdriver


var webdriver = require('browserstack-webdriver');

var driver = new webdriver.Builder().

driver.wait(function() {
  return driver.getTitle().then(function(title) {
    return title === 'webdriver - Google Search';
}, 1000);
