Test Google Homepage using Google
Over the past couple of years, I have been doing various automation programs. I have spent a lot of time using PyTest to test various websites and web objects.
If you are new to PyTest, here's a sample code that can help you get started. This piece of code will check to see if Google changed the text on the footer of the page.
The "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.9/bin/pytest" is the path to pytest, and makes this script easy to run from the command line.
#!/usr/bin/env /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.9/bin/pytest # Verify the Pytest was installed import pytest from selenium import webdriver from selenium.webdriver.chrome.service import Service from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By from webdriver_manager.chrome import ChromeDriverManager def test_google(): global chrome_driver chrome_driver = webdriver.Chrome(service=Service(ChromeDriverManager().install())) chrome_driver.get('https://www.google.com/') title = "Google" assert title == chrome_driver.title pageSource = chrome_driver.page_source gateway = "Our third decade of climate action" if not gateway in pageSource: pytest.fail( "Google Changed their Webpage") chrome_driver.close()
To get this to work, you need to install, PyTest, Selenium, and Webdriver. From the command line, run these commands:
pip3 install pytest pip3 install selenium pip3 install webdriver_manager
