Using SeleniumLibrary with the Robotframework Plugin

ExtraPathDirectories parameter can be used to add extra test libraries to your build.

By default, you should add them to ${project.basedir}/src/test/resources/robotframework/libraries.

Configuration and Installation

Download the tarball from the Selenium Library download page, e.g. robotframework-seleniumlibrary-2.6.tar.gz

Extract the file and move the SeleniumLibrary directory from robotframework-seleniumLibrary/src to $project.basedir/src/test/resources/robotframework/libraries.

So your project will have a folder ${project.basedir}/src/test/resources/robotframework/libraries/SeleniumLibrary

Example

Now, you can import SeleniumLibrary and use its keywords in your tests.

Below you see a test case that uses the Open Browser keyword. The Selenium server is started during suite setup.

*** Settings ***
