WebdriverIO + Allure reporter + TypeScript

Build Status Open issues Version

Util that blends WebdriverIO , TypeScript and Allure Reporter in to end-to-end UI testing solution. It wraps the most common WebdriverIO actions, generating intuitive error messages in case of failure, custom logs for the Allure Reporter, more validations for enhanced stability, and last, but not least, IntelliSense.

Getting Started

You need to install Java JDK 8 or above, NodeJS

Supported browsers Chrome


Install this package together with helper packages

npm i -D wdio-allure-ts typescript start-server-and-test chai http-server

Setting last Chromedriver version to .env file

pnpm setChromeDriverVersion

Add example test

See Examples

or use your own

// specs/example_test.spec.ts
import { expect } from 'chai';
import { describeCommon } from '../TestHelper';
import { BrowserUtils } from 'wdio-allure-ts';

const { click, getAttribute, isDisplayed, waitForDisplayed, waitUntil } = BrowserUtils;
const getImgSrc = () => getAttribute('#myimage', 'src');

describeCommon('Test Example', () => {
  beforeEach(async () => {
    // runs before each test in the block
    await click('#displayImage'); //for example
    await waitForDisplayed('#myimage'); //for example

  it('Should display the image', async () => {
    expect(await isDisplayed('#myimage')).to.equal(true);

  it('Image should have some src eventually', async () => {
    const testImgSrc = () => getImgSrc() === '';
    await waitUntil(testImgSrc, 'Error message for failing test', 2000);

Add tsconfig.json

  "include": ["specs/**/*.ts"]


Install and run tests

pnpm install all dependencies

pnpm start:sampleApp spin up the sample app page for testing

pnpm test executes all tests

pnpm spec <spec name> executes specific spec file

Environment variables

PRINT_LOGS_TO_CONSOLE - false by default. only enabled in dev configuration, since parallel tests execution will log to same terminal

DEFAULT_TIME_OUT - timeout for webdriverIO actions. Default value 60 seconds

CHROME_DRIVER_VERSION- version of chromedriver

Project Structure


Logs to both terminal and allure report


webdriverIO actions wrapper


Common utils for tests such as getRandomString()


Holds keyboard special keys


Common utils for git like get the last merged files


Common utils for testrail api like update tests field


Common utils for managing test files

Example for TestRailUtils

//Update the Automation field for the last merged tests to Automated

try {
  const lastMergedTestsIds = GitUtils.getLastMergedTestsIds();
} catch (error) {

Example With Pure WebdriverIO

Now take a look at an example of an action that, after validating that a particular element is visible, clicks it, logs every step to the Reporter, and throws meaningful errors for failures, if any.

const selector: string = 'someSelector';
await logger(`Click an element with selector: ${selector}`);
try {
  await logger(`Validate element with selector ${selector} is displayed`);
  await browser.isDisplayed(selector);
} catch (error) {
  throw new Error(`Tried to click not visible element, ${error}`);

try {
  await logger('Perform click action');
} catch (error) {
  throw new Error(`Failed to click an element by given selector ${selector}. ${error}`);

Example with wdio-allure-ts:

const selector: string = 'someSelector';

You can see that wdio-allure-ts offers the same capabilities with much cleaner code. Because it automatically handles logging and error reporting, developers can focus on testing the business logic. You can add more report logs with a simple Reporter API for log levels: step, debug, error, info, and warning. The logs are displayed on the terminal and reflected in the report. Example:

import { Reporter } from 'wdio-allure-ts';
await Reporter.step('Step log entry');
await Reporter.error('Error log entry');

Terminal Output

Terminal Output Note the difference in the highlighted areas between the original report and the one created with wdio-allure-ts. Original Report

Original Report

wdio-allure-ts Report(live report example):

wdio-allure-ts Report

CLI execution

Added an option to execute tests with cli.


node ./lib/helpers/runner.js

That uses default wdio configuration wdio.default.conf.js if no parameters passed.

Additional available cli inputs:

--specs "test1.js" "test2.js - tests path separated by space

--config "customConfig.js" - path to custom config for wdio execution

CLI example:

node ./lib/helpers/runner.js --specs 'specs/TEST1.js' 'specs/TEST2.js' --config 'customConf.js'


In our package we're using following services:

Devtools selenium-standalone

How to write commit message

We use Conventional Commits For commit message, please use a template:

<type>[optional scope]: <description>

[optional body]

[optional footer(s)]

We use several types:

fix: a commit of the type fix patches a bug in your codebase (this correlates with PATCH in semantic versioning) fix: correct minor typos in code

feat: a commit of the type feat introduces a new feature to the codebase (this correlates with MINOR in semantic versioning) feat: add new random function

test: a commit of the type test introduces a new test or correcting existing tests (this correlates with MINOR in semantic versioning) test: add new test for random function

docs: commit of the type docs introduces adding/fixing documentation (this correlates with MINOR in semantic versioning) docs: correct spelling in README

BREAKING CHANGE: a commit that has a footer BREAKING CHANGE:, or appends a ! after the type/scope, introduces a breaking API change (correlating with MAJOR in Semantic Versioning).

Commit message with description and breaking change footer

feat: bump WDIO version to 7
BREAKING CHANGE: bumping new WDIO version to 7

or Commit message with ! to draw attention to breaking change feat!: bump WDIO version

Note: A BREAKING CHANGE can be part of commits of any type
