gulp-protractor-burked

gulp-protractor NPM version Build Status Dependency Status

Run your angular protractor tests with gulp

Usage

First, install gulp-protractor AND protractor as a development dependency:

npm install --save-dev gulp-protractor protractor

Then, add it to your gulpfile.js:

var protractor = require("gulp-protractor").protractor;
 
gulp.src(["./src/tests/*.js"])
    .pipe(protractor({
        configFile: "test/protractor.config.js",
        args: ['--baseUrl', 'http://127.0.0.1:8000']
    }))
    .on('error', function(e) { throw e })

Protractor Webdriver

You have to update and start a standalone selenium server. Please read the offical instructions.

You can also ensure that the driver is installed by using the webdriver_update task. Have a look at the example folder.

You have 2 options to start the selenium server.

The first one is to let Protractor handle it automatically, including stopping it once your tests are done.
To do that, simply point to the selenium jar in the protractor config file (you will need to update the version number accordingly) instead of the address:

  // The file path to the selenium server jar () 
  seleniumServerJar: './node_modules/protractor/selenium/selenium-server-standalone-2.39.0.jar',
  // seleniumAddress: 'http://localhost:4444/wd/hub', 

The second option is to let the gulp task handle it with the built-in webdriver snippet.
If you decide to start it that way, the task will keep running indefintely.

var webdriver_standalone = require("gulp-protractor").webdriver_standalone;
gulp.task('webdriver_standalone', webdriver_standalone);
