Re-Blog: JavaScript Multi Module Project – Continuous Integration

Our friend Lubos Krnac describes how to integrate Sauce with Protractor in a quest to implement continuous integration in his JavaScript multi module project with Grunt. Below is a quote from his most recent blog post along side some code.

Read the rest of his post to get the full how-to here.

An important part of this setup is Protractor integration with Sauce Labs. Sauce Labs provides a Selenium server with WebDiver API for testing. Protractor uses Sauce Labs by default when you specify their credentials. Credentials are the only special configuration in test/protractor/protractorConf.js (bottom of the snippet). The other configuration was taken from the grunt-protractor-coverage example. I am using this Grunt plug-in for running Protractor tests and measuring code coverage.

// A reference configuration file.
exports.config = {
  // ----- What tests to run -----
  //
  // Spec patterns are relative to the location of this config.
  specs: [
    'test/protractor/*Spec.js'
  ],
  // ----- Capabilities to be passed to the webdriver instance ----
  //
  // For a full list of available capabilities, see
  // and
  capabilities: {
    'browserName': 'chrome'
    //  'browserName': 'firefox'
    //  'browserName': 'phantomjs'
  },
  params: {
  },
  // ----- More information for your tests ----
  //
  // A base URL for your application under test. Calls to protractor.get()
  // with relative paths will be prepended with this.
  baseUrl: 'http://localhost:3000/',
  // Options to be passed to Jasmine-node.
  jasmineNodeOpts: {
    showColors: true, // Use colors in the command line report.
    isVerbose: true, // List all tests in the console
    includeStackTrace: true,
    defaultTimeoutInterval: 90000
  },
  
  sauceUser: process.env.SAUCE_USERNAME,
  sauceKey: process.env.SAUCE_ACCESS_KEY
};

You may ask "how can I use localhost in the configuration, when a remote selenium server is used for testing?" Good question. Sauce Labs provides a very useful feature called Sauce Connect. It is a tunnel that emulates access to your machine from a Selenium server. This is super useful when you need to bypass company firewall. It will be used later in main project CI configuration.
