Google invented Protractor over WebDriverJs Protocol with crispy designs on real world testing scenarios. It’s originally for AngularJS and people like it.
But what if you want to use it as an E2E framework for Non-Angular websites?
Say Paul is working on a project over Microsfot KnockoutJs. And I would like to have my team get the most out of Google’s hard and smart work.
That is the reason why I made this Protractor-jQuery, the utility to have Protractor running over jQuery-based websites (Non-Angular), as an End-To-End testing framework.
git clone https://github.com/lanshunfang/protractor-jquery.git cd protractor-jquery npm install
npm run serve
npm run e2e
Create new suite under test/spec-e2e/pages/, refer them in test/cfg/protractor-config.js,#under “suites:”
I have already provided a demo suites “test/spec-e2e/pages/home” for you to get started. Just duplicate the folder and tweak it.
# CASE_TITLE_SUBSTRING is the title of your case, could be substring of your case. # Say npm run e2e "tech" is going to only run test cases that has title including string "tech" npm run e2e "CASE_TITLE_SUBSTRING"
The main idea to tweak Protractor for Non-Angular websites, is to rewrite
Which is how Protractor handle all asynchronised requests. If any jQuery.ajax request is pending, then we wait until it’s done.
