npm install protractor --save-dev

To use it with Nightmare install nightmare and nightmare-upload packages:

npm install nightmare nightmare-upload --save-dev

To use it with Puppeteer install puppeteer package:

npm install puppeteer --save-dev

Meta Packages

By default it doesn't install any backends like Webdriverio, Protractor, or Nightmare, so you need to install corresponding packages manually, or install one of the provided meta-packages:

Install them using NPM:

[sudo] npm install codeceptjs-webdriverio
# or
[sudo] npm install codeceptjs-protractor
# or
[sudo] npm install codeceptjs-puppeteer
# or
[sudo] npm install codeceptjs-nightmare

They can be installed either globally or locally

WebDriver

WebDriver based helpers like WebDriverIO, Protractor, Selenium WebDriver will require Selenium Server or PhantomJS installed. They will also require ChromeDriver or GeckoDriver to run corresponding browsers.

We recommend to install them manually or use NPM packages:

  • Selenium Standalone to install and run Selenium, ChromeDriver, Firefox Driver with one package.
  • Phantomjs: to install and execute Phantomjs

or use Docker for headless browser testing.

Launch Selenium with Chrome browser inside a Docker container:

docker run --net=host selenium/standalone-chrome

Global

CodeceptJS can be installed via NPM globally, in this case it is recommended to use meta-packages for installation:

[sudo] npm install -g codeceptjs-webdriverio
# or
[sudo] npm install -g codeceptjs-protractor
# or
[sudo] npm install -g codeceptjs-puppeteer
# or
[sudo] npm install -g codeceptjs-nightmare

then it can be started as

codeceptjs
