Remote file uploads with Selenium & PHP
Posted by Isaac Murchie in Selenium ResourcesSoftware Development & TestingUncategorized

When testing file uploading functionality we have to consider two scenarios... running browsers locally and running them remotely. Locally there is no problem: test browsers have access to the files the tests specify. When running the same tests remotely, with the browser running on a different machine than the test programs, we run into a significant problem: the files we specify to upload are [...]

Posted by Dylan in RubySelenium Resources

(This post is a little code journey. If you just want to know how to enable remote uploads in Capybara, skip to the end) Usually a file upload is for a file on the same computer as the browser you're uploading with: User on System 1: Upload C:/files/selfie.jpg to Facebook Browser on System 1: Opening C:/files/selfie.jpg, Uploading....

Sauce Labs and Yes, the BrowserMob Proxy
Posted by Adam Goucher in Selenium Resources

As a consultant, I hear all too often, 'Our scripts are slow, how do we speed them up?'  Part of the solution is to use the BrowserMob proxy to Get Rid of the 3rd Party Crap. Another situation where the BrowserMob proxy comes in handy is if you are accessing a site that uses Basic Authentication with WebDriver. But until now, making use of these tricks with Sauce wasn't an easy task. (Well, [...]

Thankfully, when this happens while running a test, we have measures built into our system that reboot the browser and rerun your test for you. This happens without you even knowing, and helps to make your testing life easier. [...]
