    Node.js Selenium Standalone Test

    A node based CLI library for launching Selenium with WebDriver support.

    Supported Drivers:

    Install & Run

    As Global NPM Package

    npm install selenium-standalone -g
    selenium-standalone install && selenium-standalone start

    As a Local NPM Package

    npm install selenium-standalone --save-dev
    npx selenium-standalone install && npx selenium-standalone start

    As a Docker Service

    docker run -it -p 4444:4444 webdriverio/selenium-standalone

    If you run Chrome or Firefox tests within a Docker container make sure you set capabilities so that the session is headless, e.g.:

    capabilities: {
      browserName: 'chrome',
      'goog:chromeOptions': {
        args: ['--no-sandbox', '--headless']

    or Firefox:

    capabilities: {
      browserName: 'firefox',
      'moz:firefoxOptions': {
        args: ['-headless']

    If you are looking for more sophisticated Docker container that allows you to run browser, check out the Docker Selenium project.
