Mac OS X Selenium testing. Webdriver and Selenium RC testing with Apple.

2012-03-21
We will make a lot of people happy with this announcement: today we start providing our customers with Mac OS X testing on-demand. Next to testing on Windows (2008/2003), Linux and Android we now finally provide testing on Apple's OS. We provide a video and screenshots of your test running on OS X, just like we do with all the other platforms we support. An example in Ruby of running a test on the mac would be:
require "rubygems" require 'testingbot' gem "selenium-client" gem "selenium-webdriver" require "selenium-webdriver" require "selenium/client" caps = { :browserName => "firefox", :platform => "MAC" } urlhub = "http://key:secret@hub.testingbot.com:4444/wd/hub" client = Selenium::WebDriver::Remote::Http::Default.new client.timeout = 120 webdriver = Selenium::WebDriver.for :remote,:url => urlhub , :desired_capabilities => caps, :http_client => client webdriver.navigate.to "http://www.testingbot.com/" puts webdriver.title webdriver.quit
The browsers we currently support on MAC are:
  • Firefox 11
  • Safari 5
  • Google Chrome
List of all browsers/OS versions we support: browsers OS X testing is available in beta to our customers (excluding free trials). Enjoy!
