Readme for webdriver-0.3

[back to package description]


hs-webdriver is a Selenium WebDriver client for the Haskell programming language. You can use it to automate browser sessions for testing, system administration, etc.

For more information about Selenium itself, see


hs-webdriver uses the Cabal build system to configure, build, install, and generate documentation on multiple platforms.

For more information on using Cabal and its various installation options, see the Cabal User's Guide at

Installation from Hackage

hs-webdriver is hosted on Hackage under the name webdriver. Thus, the simplest way to download and install the most recent version of hs-webdriver is to run:

cabal install webdriver

There are also options to do system-wide installation, version selection, and other build options; see cabal-install documentation.

Installation from this repository

To build and install a git revision for a single user on your system, run these commands from within the repository directory

Using cabal-install

cabal install

Using Cabal

For systems without cabal-install available, you can also run the Setup.hs script, as such:

runhaskell Setup.hs configure --user
runhaskell Setup.hs build
runhaskell Setup.hs install

For more build options, please refer to the Cabal documentation.


Documentation for hs-webdriver is available on Hackage at However, here's how to generate local HTML documentation from this source revision:

runhaskell Setup.hs haddock

Haddock will generate documentation and save it in dist/doc/html/webdriver
