Readme for webdriver-wrapper-0.2.0.0

[back to package description]

webdriver-wrapper

This package was created so end-users don't need to manually manage Selenium or their webdriver when dealing with the webdriver package.

This package is strongly inspired by sandwich-webdriver. My original use-case didn't require the sandwich test suite, though, so I made this package which focuses on being simpler and more minimalistic.

Extra dependencies

You must have Java installed, since Selenium is distributed as a .jar file. I'm running OpenJDK 17 on my machine, and it just works.

How to use

The wrappedRunSession function is a drop-in replacement for runSession. It will download, if needed, Selenium and a webdriver to ~/.local/haskell-webdriver-wrapper/{your_architecture} (on Linux) or %APPDATA%/haskell-webdriver-wrapper/{your_architecture} (on Windows). Then it starts Selenium and runs your WD a computation, closing Selenium whether WD succeeds or fails.

For runWD, there are two functions: wrappedFirefoxRunWD and wrappedChromeRunWD. They're also drop-in replacements for runWD, and will also handle everything related to Selenium - the only difference being, as you can imagine, wrappedFirefoxRunWD runs your session on Firefox and wrappedChromeRunWD runs your session on Chrome.
