    Launcher for Google Chrome, Google Chrome Canary and Google Chromium.

    Installation

    The easiest way is to keep karma-chrome-launcher as a devDependency in your package.json, by running

    $ npm i -D karma-chrome-launcher

    Configuration

    // karma.conf.js
    module.exports = function(config) {
      config.set({
        browsers: ['Chrome', 'Chrome_without_security'], // You may use 'ChromeCanary', 'Chromium' or any other supported browser
     
        // you can define custom flags
        customLaunchers: {
          Chrome_without_security: {
            base: 'Chrome',
            flags: ['--disable-web-security', '--disable-site-isolation-trials']
          }
        }
      })
    }

    The --user-data-dir is set to a temporary directory but can be overridden on a custom launcher as shown below. One reason to do this is to have a permanent Chrome user data directory inside the project directory to be able to install plugins there (e.g. JetBrains IDE Support plugin).

    customLaunchers: {
      Chrome_with_debugging: {
        base: 'Chrome',
        chromeDataDir: path.resolve(__dirname, '.chrome')
      }
    }

    You can pass list of browsers as a CLI argument too:

    $ karma start --browsers Chrome,Chrome_without_security

    Headless Chromium with Puppeteer

    The Chrome DevTools team created Puppeteer - it will automatically install Chromium for all platforms and contains everything you need to run it from within your CI.

    Available Browsers

    Note: Headless mode requires a browser version >= 59

    • Chrome (CHROME_BIN)
    • ChromeHeadless (CHROME_BIN)
    • Chromium (CHROMIUM_BIN)
    • ChromiumHeadless (CHROMIUM_BIN)
    • ChromeCanary (CHROME_CANARY_BIN)
    • ChromeCanaryHeadless (CHROME_CANARY_BIN)
    • Dartium (DARTIUM_BIN)

    Usage

    $ npm i -D puppeteer karma-chrome-launcher
    // karma.conf.js
    process.env.CHROME_BIN = require('puppeteer').executablePath()
     
    module.exports = function(config) {
      config.set({
        browsers: ['ChromeHeadless']
      })
    }
