What is Puppeteer?
Who uses Puppeteer?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Puppeteer in their tech stack.
I work in a company building web apps with AngularJS. I started using Selenium for tests automation, as I am more familiar with Python. However, I found some difficulties, like the impossibility of using IDs and fixed lists of classes, ending up with using xpaths most, which unfortunately could change with fixes and modifications in the code.
Any comments on this comparison and also on comparisons with similar tools are welcome! :)
Currently, we are using Protractor in our project. Since Protractor isn't updated anymore, we are looking for a new tool. The strongest suggestions are WebdriverIO or Puppeteer. Please help me figure out what tool would make the transition fastest and easiest. Please note that Protractor uses its own locator system, and we want the switch to be as simple as possible. Thank you!
My main concern is:
- Browser support - Desktop - needs to support Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft Edge (minimum)
- Browser support - Mobile - Safari and Chrome (minimum)
- App - Android and iOS
If possible i would like to avoid using another tool for mobile (like Appium)
What do you use? What is the one you recommend (even another from the ones mentioned)
Thank you very much for your help!
