Why should you learn WebdriverIO?

WebdriverIO is a powerful test automation framework for Node.js. It provides a simple and easy to use API for writing automated tests for web applications. WebdriverIO makes it easy to run tests in parallel, which helps to drastically speed up the process of running a regression suite. It also has an extensive library of tools and features that make writing automated tests a breeze. WebdriverIO also allows for integration with a variety of other testing frameworks and tools, making it a great choice for a wide range of testing needs.

This course will teach how to use WebdriverIO main components from scratch.

  1. Test Runner: This component is responsible for running the tests. It provides the ability to execute tests in parallel, execute tests in different browsers, as well as many other features.

  2. Assertion Library: This component is responsible for writing the assertions in the tests. By default, it uses the Chai assertion library, but can be configured to use any assertion library.

  3. Command Line Interface (CLI): This component provides an easy way to execute tests from the command line. It also provides a way to configure the test runner, so you can set up the environment for your tests.

  4. Browser Drivers: This component is responsible for communicating with the browser. It provides the ability to navigate to a page, click on elements, and perform other actions in the browser.

  5. Test Reporter: This component is responsible for reporting the results of the tests. It can be configured to print the results to the console, or write the results to a file.

WebdriverIO includes the following sections:

  1. Setting up the Environment: This section covers the installation and configuration of WebdriverIO, as well as the setup of the necessary dependencies.

  2. Writing Your First Test: This section takes you through the process of writing your first test using WebdriverIO.

  3. Locating Elements: This section covers the various methods of locating elements on a web page so that you can interact with them.

  4. Working with the Browser: This section covers the API for controlling the browser, such as opening and closing windows and tabs, navigating, etc.

  5. Working with the DOM: This section covers the API for interacting with the DOM, such as retrieving text, attributes, etc.

  6. Debugging: This section covers techniques for debugging WebdriverIO scripts, such as using the built-in logging capabilities.

  7. Advanced Topics: This section covers more advanced topics, such as using custom commands, using the WDIO testrunner, etc.
