Watir

Watir, pronounced water, is an open-source (BSD) family of Ruby libraries for automating web browsers. It supports your app no matter what technology it is developed in. They support Internet Explorer on Windows, Firefox and Chrome on Windows, Mac and Linux.

About

This is the meta-gem for installing all necessary dependencies and having a convenient way to switch between different Watir drivers.

Currently supported drivers are: - watir-classic - watir-webdriver

Visit Watir website or refer to each gem's own README and documentation for better understanding of how to use these libraries.

Usage

Add it into your Gemfile:

ruby
gem "watir", "~>4.0"

Or install it manually with the following command:

gem install watir

Then in your test file:

ruby
require "watir"
browser = Watir::Browser.new

The command above will use watir-classic with Internet Explorer on Windows and watir-webdriver with Firefox on Linux/OS X by default.

Switching Between Drivers

There are multiple ways to specify a different driver.

By specifying different browser via

#initialize
: ````ruby
require "watir"

will use watir-webdriver with Chrome

browser = Watir::Browser.new :chrome ````

By specifying driver manually via

Watir.driver#=
: ````ruby
require "watir"

will use watir-webdriver with Internet Explorer

Watir.driver = :webdriver browser = Watir::Browser.new :ie ````

Or by using an environment variable

WATIR_DRIVER
: ````ruby require "watir"

will use watir-classic

ENV["WATIR_DRIVER"] = "classic" browser = Watir::Browser.new ````

Limitations

Currently it is possible to use only one driver per Ruby process. All the methods to switch between drivers won't have any effect after you've opened your first browser window.
