selenium-wire. Really useful scraping tool: enhances the Python Selenium bindings to run against a proxy which then allows Python scraping code to look at captured requests—great for if a site you are working with triggers Ajax requests and you want to extract data from the raw JSON that came back. # 2nd November 2020, 6:58 pm
selenium-demoscraper (via) Really useful minimal example of a Binder project. Click the button to launch a Jupyter notebook in Binder that can take screenshots of URLs using Selenium-controlled headless Firefox. The binder/ folder uses an apt.txt file to install Firefox, requirements.txt to get some Python dependencies and a postBuild Python script to download the Gecko Selenium driver. # 4th November 2019, 3:05 pm
Cypress (via) Promising looking new open source testing framework for full-blown web integration testing—a modern alternative to Selenium. I spent five minutes playing with the demo and was really impressed by it—especially their “time travel” feature which lets you hover over a passed test and see the state of the browser when each of those assertions was executed. # 11th October 2017, 4:14 pm

I am writing this blog post to tell you that not only is it possible, it’s just one part of my day job.
