Sauce Labs is a cloud platform for executing automated and manual mobile and web tests. Sauce Labs supports running automated tests with Selenium WebDriver (for web applications) and Appium (for native and mobile web applications). This topic will provide you with an example of how to get your Python tests up and running on Sauce.
The explicit wait method tells the browser to wait a set amount of time (in seconds) for elements to appear on the page before giving up. Using explicit waits is one of our recommended best practices.
Analyzing the Code
If you look at the code closely, you'll see that basics for setting up a test to run on sauce are very straightforward, and really only require two elements.
Running the Test
- Copy the example code and save it into a file called
Make sure your username and access key are included in the URL passed through to the command_executor.
- Open a command line terminal and navigate to the directory where the file is located.
Execute the test:
Check your dashboard and you will see that your test has just run on Sauce!
