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


CodeceptJS can be installed via NPM globally:

[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
