I am working with an automation tool which has to be deployed inside an ubuntu server, my wonder is if is possible to use chrome in a silent way with Selenium Webdriver.
I’ve tried the following code so far, but it keeps opening the browser (I’m doing the tests in a Windows 10):
var webdriver = require('selenium-webdriver'), chrome = require('selenium-webdriver/chrome') By = webdriver.By, until = webdriver.until, options = new chrome.Options(); options.addArguments('--headless'); var path = require('chromedriver').path; var service = new chrome.ServiceBuilder(path).build(); chrome.setDefaultService(service); var driver = new webdriver.Builder().forBrowser('chrome').withCapabilities(options.toCapabilities()).build(); driver.get('https://www.google.com');
Note that the addArguments(’–headless’) is the parameter that should make the navigation silent, but apparently it’s not working or I am missing something I am not aware of.
If there is something I am missing, please tell me because I don’t know if what I want to do is possible, as It is the frist time I work with this kind of technology.
