npm install sauce-connect-launcher

If you wish to also download Sauce Connect at this stage, rather than on first run, use the SAUCE_CONNECT_DOWNLOAD_ON_INSTALL environment variable.

SAUCE_CONNECT_DOWNLOAD_ON_INSTALL=true npm install
var sauceConnectLauncher = require('sauce-connect-launcher');
 
sauceConnectLauncher({
  username: 'bermi',
  accessKey: '12345678-1234-1234-1234-1234567890ab'
}, function (errsauceConnectProcess) {
  if (err) {
    console.error(err.message);
    return;
  }
  console.log("Sauce Connect ready");
 
  sauceConnectProcess.close(function () {
    console.log("Closed Sauce Connect process");
  })
});
 
var sauceConnectLauncher = require('sauce-connect-launcher'),
  options = {
 
    // Sauce Labs username.  You can also pass this through the 
    // SAUCE_USERNAME environment variable 
    username: 'bermi',
 
    // Sauce Labs access key.  You can also pass this through the 
    // SAUCE_ACCESS_KEY environment variable 
    accessKey: '12345678-1234-1234-1234-1234567890ab',
 
    // Log output from the `sc` process to stdout? 
    verbose: false,
 
    // Enable verbose debugging (optional) 
    verboseDebugging: false,
 
    // Port on which Sauce Connect's Selenium relay will listen for 
    // requests. Default 4445. (optional) 
    port: null,
 
    // Proxy host and port that Sauce Connect should use to connect to 
    // the Sauce Labs cloud. e.g. "localhost:1234" (optional) 
    proxy: null,
 
    // Change sauce connect logfile location (optional) 
    logfile: null,
 
    // Period to log statistics about HTTP traffic in seconds (optional) 
    logStats: null,
 
    // Maximum size before which the logfile is rotated (optional) 
    maxLogsize: null,
 
    // Set to true to perform checks to detect possible misconfiguration or problems (optional) 
    doctor: null,
 
    // Identity the tunnel for concurrent tunnels (optional) 
    tunnelIdentifier: null,
 
    // an array or comma-separated list of regexes whose matches 
    // will not go through the tunnel. (optional) 
    fastFailRexegps: null,
 
    // an array or comma-separated list of domains that will not go 
    // through the tunnel. (optional) 
    directDomains: null,
 
    // A function to optionally write sauce-connect-launcher log messages. 
    // e.g. `console.log`.  (optional) 
    loggerfunction (message) {},
 
    // an optional suffix to be appended to the `readyFile` name. 
    // useful when running multiple tunnels on the same machine, 
    // such as in a continuous integration environment. (optional) 
    readyFileId: null
  };
 
sauceConnectLauncher(options, function (errsauceConnectProcess) {
  console.log("Started Sauce Connect Process");
  sauceConnectProcess.close(function () {
    console.log("Closed Sauce Connect process");
  });
});
 

Additional Sauce Connect options not specified above can still be passed. additionalArg: "foo" options will be converted to --addtional-arg foo args (camelCase to kebeb-case). Arrays will be join()ed (like directDomains) and boolean options will be passed as flags. See Sauce Connect's docs for a full list of arguments.

You can pass the Sauce Labs credentials as SAUCE_USERNAME and SAUCE_ACCESS_KEY environment variables. (reccommended)

You can also create a user.json file in your current working directory with the username and key

user.json

{"username": "bermi", "accessKey": "12345678-1234-1234-1234-1234567890ab"}

You can override the default Sauce Connect version with the SAUCE_CONNECT_VERSION environment variable.

$ SAUCE_CONNECT_VERSION=4.2 node myTestApp.js

Clone the repository and run

make setup

You will be prompted for Sauce Labs credentials (used for testing). Run

make dev

to start the watcher.

npm test

or

make test
