#Taiko #TrendInTaiko #NaveenAutomationLabs

In this video, I have explained about Taiko – a new web automation tool for chrome.

What’s Taiko?
Taiko is a free and open source browser automation tool built by the team behind Gauge from ThoughtWorks. Taiko is a node library with a clear and concise API to automate the chrome browser. Tests written in Taiko are highly readable and maintainable.

With Taiko it’s easy to

Get Started
Record/Write/Run tests
Taiko’s smart selectors make tests reliable by adapting to changes in the structure of your web application. With Taiko there’s no need for id/css/xpath selectors or adding explicit waits (for XHR requests) in test scripts.

Features
Taiko is built ground up to test modern web applications. Here’s a list of a few unique features that sets it apart from other browser automation tools.

Easy Installation
Interactive Recorder
Smart Selectors
Handle XHR and dynamic content
Request/Response stubbing and mocking

Great start on Taiko, I have two questions below.

appreciate if you share your expertise thoughts which adds value to QA automation community.

Can Taiko has control outside of Browser? Say file downloaded at specific location, you may need to verify with location path in your computer and see content exists or not

How different is with CodeceptJS? (https://codecept.io/)Codeceptjs is also On javascript and supports variety of plugins as

What is the need of Taiko when community of supports are only less than 6months 50 contributors per Git(https://github.com/getgauge/taiko)

Thanks for sharing! 🙂
