dToday’s post is about a few error messages I countered while developing a framework with Selenium Web Driver with chrome. I have been seeing the messageDevTools listening on ws://127.0.0.1:65055/devtools/browser/83f5addd-aadf-4882-839c-13f0d75604ac For quite some time, but could not find any clue, and since it was not preventing my tests from running, I decided to leave it. I later learnt it might be… Read more →
I have been working with Selenium Web Driver directly with Chrome and Firefox. And one of the things I have encountered when tests are run against my development server is the ‘Connection Is Not Private’ page, which is due to lack of ssl certificate. And this created a problem in my automation scripts as it prevents the scripts from interacting… Read more →
Often times, Selenium/Protactor action(s) will work on one browser but not on another browser. As in my case, the Scroll action and DoubleClick action are both accepted by Chrome, however not by Firefox Gecko driver. Some research find it to be a known issue with Firefox Gecko Driver not implementing the moveTo() action in selenium WebDriver. If run with the… Read more →
In my earlier posts here and here, I discussed how to configure protractor for single capabilities and multi-capabilities. In this post I will talk about how to detect the type of browser(s) that the tests are running against (ex. Chrome, Firefox etc.). The reason for doing so, because often times we are facing problems where we want to define certain… Read more →
In my earlier post, I talked about how to configure protractor to run on Firefox with single capabilities. however what if one needs to run on multiple browsers (whether if it is sequentiallly or parallely). That will be the topic of this post. So follow the conventions from the earlier post, we will use a separate file that contains the… Read more →
I have been developing tests using SerenityJS, which has Protractor running underneath it, to perform UI testing in a BDD fashion. The tests have been developed initially on MacOS with Chrome, as the tests mature, we wanted to extends our tests to run Firefox on MacOS.. Firefox uses the Gecko Driver. After some trial and error as well as extended… Read more →
Using SSH Key Pairs when working with a remote git repository (ex. GitHub) could save a lot of trouble and it is more secure. We will show you how to config GitHub using key pair you have generated today. (To see how to generate a key pair, you can see how to do it in Windows using PuttyGen here, or… Read more →
Today we will go through the steps to generate SSH Key pair using PuttyGen on Windows.

Recently I have been upgrading my windows systems to Windows 10 as the deadline for free upgrade was approaching. I first tried to upgrading my HP laptop which has Windows 8 installed, the upgrade went smoothly without a glitch. However when upgrading from Windows 7 I encountered the error: api-ms-win-core-libraryloader-l1-1-1.dll Is missing The information is rather vague, it simply… Read more →
I have a set of code which worked on before but never version controlled. I was trying to push it to Github by creating a new repo on Github with some git ignore config files and README.md, then initialize, add and commit the local repo with:
git add .
git commt -m "some message"
However when I try to pull from the remote repo on Github, an… Read more →
