When we inspect elements of sites that are not developed using AngularJS and sites which are developed using AngularJS, there are very fewer similarities between them. This turned as a challenge to find a tool that can find elements of AngularJS. Few of the challenges encountered are mentioned below:

How to automate the elements which are not findable by selenium (AngularJS elements)

Find a freeware/open-source tool that can locate AngularJS elements

Find such a tool which do not require very deep knowledge of coding languages

Install-Configure-Run the tool for the first time

Our Solution

To overcome such a challenge, we have used a very fine tool named as Protractor. Protractor is an end-to-end test framework for AngularJS applications developed by Angular Team.

Protractor is a Node.js program and runs end-to-end tests that are also written in JavaScript and run with node

Protractor uses WebDriver to control browsers and simulate user actions

Protractor uses Jasmine for its test syntax. As in unit testing, a test file is comprised of one or more it blocks that describe the requirements of your application. It blocks are made of commands and expectations.

Commands tell Protractor to do something with the application such as navigate to a page or click on a button. Expectations tell Protractor to assert something about the application’s state, such as the value of a field or the current URL

If any expectation within it block fails, the runner marks it as “failed” and continues on to the next block.

Our Take on This Project

Implementation To install Protractor first we need to install Node JS

With the help of small command: “npm install -g protractor” we can install Protractor

Than we need to update web driver manager by following command: “webdriver-manager update” That’s it, now just write code in any editor (notepad/notepad++ etc) and save it with .js extension. Open the conf.js file from Protractor folder and give the name of the code file in specs section.

Use the following command to run the test: “protractor conf.js”

Outcome Using Protractor, QA Team of SPEC India are able to automate AngularJS flawlessly

Also we have found that we can use Protractor in non-angular sites as well

Comparison with Other Tool - Karma As Protractor is developed by Angular team, they are recommending Protractor

The Small tests for the logic of your individual controllers, directives, and services should be run using Karma. Big tests in which you have a running instance of your entire application should be run using Protractor

Protractor and Karma cover different aspects of testing – Karma is intended mostly for unit tests, while Protractor should be used for end to end testing
