grunt-moonwalker

grunt-moonwalker

Executes Selenium IDE (selenese) tests and get a report of the execution.

This tool needs a Selenium standalone or grid server to be executed.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-moonwalker --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-moonwalker');

The "moonwalker" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named moonwalker to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  moonwalker: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here. 
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here. 
    },
  },
})

Options

options.selenium

type: Object Default value: { host: 'localhost', port: 4444 }

Determine the host and port where the selenium server (standalone or grid) is reachable.

options.desiredCapabilities

type: Array Default value: [ { browserName: 'firefox' } ]

Determine the desired capabilities where the test will be executed.

options.phantomjs

type: Object Default value: { host: 'localhost', port: 8910 }

Determine the host and port where the Ghostdriver is reachable.

options.reporter

type: Array||Function Default value: console.log

Determine the reporter to show the messages of execution. This version uses by default console.log but a junit reporter has been provided aswell. Reporters could be a function or an array, where the first element of the array is the name of the reporter and the rest of elements are the arguments used by the reporter.

options.saucelabs

type: Object Default value: { host: 'ondemand.saucelabs.com', port: 80 } Requires to define :

  • accesskey
  • username

Determine the connection data to access to your account of saucelabs. Is required to add the accesskey and username.

Usage Examples

Default Config

In this example, the default config is used to execute the selenese test.

grunt.initConfig({
  moonwalker: {
    success: {
      src: [
        'path/to/the/selenese/test'
      ]
    }
  }
})

When this code is executed it will try to connect to a Selenium server in localhost port 4444 if the server is not reachable it will throw an error else it will execute the tests using Firefox so it's important to have Firefox installed aswell. We encourage to use the filter isFile using wildcards. This test will execute one test in one browser.

Extended Config without junit report

In this example, we are adding more specific configuration to execute the selenese tests inside seleneseTests folder in two different browsers, Chrome and PhantomJS.

grunt.initConfig({
  moonwalker: {
    success: {
      src: [
        'path/to/the/seleneseTests/**'
      ],
      filter: 'isFile',
      options: {
        desiredCapabilities: [
          {
            browserName: 'chrome'
          },
          {
            browserName: 'phantomjs'
          }
        ]
      }
    }
  }
})
 
When this code is executed it will try to connect to a Selenium server in localhost port 4444 if the server is not reachable
it will throw an error, it will also will try to connect to the GhostDriver in localhost port 8910 if GhostDriever is not reachable
it will throw an error else it will execute the tests using Chrome and Phantomjs so it's important to have Chrome and Phantomjs installed aswell.
We use the [filter `isFile`](http://gruntjs.com/configuring-tasks) using wildcards to avoid iterate over folders.
This test will execute all the tests inside the folder in two browsers.
 
#### Extended Config with junit report
In this example, we are adding more specific configuration to execute the selenese tests inside `seleneseTests` folder in two different browsers, Chrome and PhantomJS and get a junit compatible report.
 
```js
grunt.initConfig({
  moonwalker: {
    success: {
      src: [
        'path/to/the/seleneseTests/**'
      ],
      filter: 'isFile',
      options: {
        desiredCapabilities: [
          {
            browserName: 'chrome'
          },
          {
            browserName: 'phantomjs'
          }
        ],
        reporter: ['junit', 'path/where/save/the/report.xml']
      }
    }
  }
})
 
When this code is executed it will try to connect to a Selenium server in localhost port 4444 if the server is not reachable
it will throw an error, it will also will try to connect to the GhostDriver in localhost port 8910 if GhostDriever is not reachable
it will throw an error else it will execute the tests using Chrome and Phantomjs so it's important to have Chrome and Phantomjs installed aswell.
We use the [filter `isFile`](http://gruntjs.com/configuring-tasks) using wildcards to avoid iterate over folders.
The reporter will save all the information about the execution of tests in junit compatible report.
This test will execute all the tests inside the folder in two browsers and creates a junit xml compatible report.
 
## Contributing
In lieu of a formal style guide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using [Grunt](http://gruntjs.com/).
