Nightwatchjs vs Selenium: What are the differences?
Developers describe Nightwatchjs as "Automated testing and continous integration framework based on node.js and selenium webdriver". Nightwatch.js is an easy to use Node.js based End-to-End (E2E) testing solution for browser based apps and websites. It uses the powerful Selenium WebDriver API to perform commands and assertions on DOM elements. On the other hand, Selenium is detailed as "Web Browser Automation". Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
Nightwatchjs and Selenium can be primarily classified as "Browser Testing" tools.
Nightwatchjs and Selenium are both open source tools. Selenium with 14.7K GitHub stars and 4.92K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Nightwatchjs with 9.38K GitHub stars and 917 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Selenium has a broader approval, being mentioned in 770 company stacks & 425 developers stacks; compared to Nightwatchjs, which is listed in 16 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

가장 강력한 웹 UI / UX 테스트 툴 이지만, 문제도 많다. iframe 안에 있는 건 잘 select 가 안되기도 하고, 화면이 작아 컴포넌트가 화면에 보이지 않으면 또 select 할 수 없다. 하지만 브라우저를 있는 그대로 제어 할 수 있다는 게 가장 큰 매력이다.
ps. selenide 와 같이 쓰면 코드가 많이 개선된다.
Maintaining and expanding automated regression tests is one of my primary responsibilities at CrowdTwist. We use Selenium to test the front-end parts of our platform.
Used Selenium web-driver for automated QA testing in continuous integration and continuous deployment.
