This is a set of R Bindings for Selenium 2.0 Remote WebDriver, which you can download from http://selenium-release.storage.googleapis.com/index.html .This binding will not work with the 1.0 version of Selenium.


To install RSelenium from CRAN run install.packages('RSelenium'). If you require the development version you will need the devtools package. If necessary (install.packages("devtools")) and run:

devtools::install_github("RSelenium", "johndharrison")

To get started using RSelenium you can look at the introduction vignette located in /doc/RSelenium-basics.html once RSelenium is installed or run


or the basic vignette can be viewed on Rpubs.

There is a second vignette dealing with running RSelenium on different browsers/OS locally and remotely which can be viewed at RSelenium: Driving OS/Browsers local and remote.

Test Shiny Apps

Use RSelenium to test your Shiny Apps.

Read the introductory tutorial on Rpubs.

Use Sauce Labs and BrowserStack

Sauce Labs

``` user <- "rselenium0" pass <- "*******************************" port <- 80 ip <- paste0(user, ':', pass, "@ondemand.saucelabs.com") browser <- "firefox" version <- "25" platform <- "OS X 10.9" extraCapabilities <- list(name = "Test RSelenium", username = user, accessKey = pass)

remDr <- remoteDriver$new(remoteServerAddr = ip, port = port, browserName = browser , version = version, platform = platform , extraCapabilities = extraCapabilities) ``` #### BrowserStack

user <- "johnharrison" 
pass <- "*******************"
port <- 80
ip <- paste0(user, ':', pass, "@hub.browserstack.com")
extraCapabilities <- list("browser" = "IE",
                          "browser_version" = "7.0",
                          "os" = "Windows",
                          "os_version" = "XP",
                          "browserstack.debug" = "true")
remDr <- remoteDriver$new(remoteServerAddr = ip, port = port
                          , extraCapabilities = extraCapabilities)
