I have finally released a new version of my Favorites plugin for Selenium IDE.
The changes in version 2.0 are as follows:-
- Prompt before clearing favorites.
- Offer to remove a favorite if it no longer exists.
- Fix missing icon on the toolbar button for new versions of Firefox.
- Allow command+click on Mac from the toolbar button menu.
- High DPI images for retina displays.
- Favorite icon indicates if the current suite is a favorite.
- Removed support for Firefox below version 17.
- Removed support for Selenium IDE below 2.7.0.
It is awaiting a review before it is made public. Since many of you were eagerly waiting for this release, you can grab it right now from the versions page on the Firefox addons page on Mozilla website.
I have also created a Favorites plugin section with information and user guide.
Do you know of a way to export values from selenium into a text file? I would like to use selenium as an automated screen-scraping tool. Creating the script the pull data elements from the page has been the easy part. The more difficult parts for this Selenium newbie have been:
1. automating the output into a sensible format. I’m scraping table data and would like to write the results to a CSV file. Is there a plug-in, command, extension which does this?
2. replicating the test cases to only change 1 value (relative path in URL). For example, I expect to input a text file with either full URLs or relative paths (/property?q=1001; /property?q=1002) and have my test suite loop through the input file executing 1 test case per line in the input file until finished.
Do either of these make sense?
This sounds like a perfect task for using Selenium / Webdriver with a programming language like Ruby, Python, Perl, Java or others. A programming language would give you the flexibility of being able to use powerful constructs and reuse existing libraries. To answer your specific questions, I am not aware of an exact match for 1 and for 2, there are data driven plugins that you can use.
