new ( %opts )

This will create a new Test::WebDriver object, which subclasses Selenium::Remote::Driver. This subclass provides useful testing functions. It is modeled on Test::WWW::Selenium.

Environment vars can be used to specify options to pass to Selenium::Remote::Driver. ENV vars are prefixed with TWD_.

Set the Selenium server address with $TWD_HOST and $TWD_PORT.

Pick which browser is used using the $TWD_BROWSER, $TWD_VERSION, $TWD_PLATFORM, $TWD_JAVASCRIPT, $TWD_EXTRA_CAPABILITIES.

See Selenium::Driver::Remote for the meanings of these options.

server_is_running( $host, $port )

Returns true if a Selenium server is running. The host and port parameters are optional, and default to localhost:4444.

Environment vars TWD_HOST and TWD_PORT can also be used to determine the server to check.

Glue Code

Below here are some methods that make things less easier or less wordy.

get_text

Get the text of a particular element. Wrapper around find_element()

get_body

Get the current text for the whole body.

get_location

Get the current URL.

get_location

Get the path part of the current browser location.

NOTES ^

For Best Practice - I recommend subclassing Test::WebDriver for your application, and then refactoring common or app specific methods into MyApp::WebDriver so that your test files do not have much duplication. As your app changes, you can update MyApp::WebDriver rather than all the individual test files.
