Setting up pipelines with selenium

Hi, I am attempting to use Bitbucket pipelines to run our Ruby Rspec/capaybara based specs.

 

I have the configuration working to the point where the tests are run, but I am having issues running chromedriver.

 

Selenium::WebDriver::Error::UnknownError: unknown error: Chrome failed to start: exited abnormally

 

Those are the kinds of errors I am seeing.

 

I have seen this question posted:

 

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Bitbucket-questions/BitBucket-Pipelines-Selenium/qaq-p/641852

 

But I do not want to set up browserstack in this instance, - but simply run the tests with chromedriver.

 

My yml file looks as follows:

 

image: ruby:2.4.0

pipelines:
    default:
           - step:
              services:
                 - mysql
                     caches:
                        - bundler
                           script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository.
                             - bundle install
                             - apt-get update
                             - curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_8.x | bash -
                             - apt-get install -y nodejs
                             - npm install
                             - npm install chromedriver
                             - rails db:migrate RAILS_ENV=test
                             - rspec

Hi @hugh

It is possible to run webdriver tests in Pipelines. This article provides some details using firefox but a similar approach can be taken with chrome: https://medium.com/@yiquanzhou/run-selenium-ui-tests-in-docker-container-78be98e1b52d

In fact we test pipelines using this method ;)

Thank you, that did help - I ended up setting it up using Firefox and Geckodriver, I kept running into issues with Chrome and Chromedriver.
