Provides a set of R bindings for the 'Selenium 2.0 WebDriver' (see < https://seleniumhq.github.io/docs/wd.html> for more information) using the 'JsonWireProtocol' (see < https://github.com/SeleniumHQ/selenium/wiki/JsonWireProtocol> for more information). 'Selenium 2.0 WebDriver' allows driving a web browser natively as a user would either locally or on a remote machine using the Selenium server it marks a leap forward in terms of web browser automation. Selenium automates web browsers (commonly referred to as browsers). Using RSelenium you can automate browsers locally or remotely.
This is a set of R Bindings for Selenium 2.0 Remote WebDriver, which you can download from http://selenium-release.storage.googleapis.com/index.html. This binding will not work with the 1.0 version of Selenium.
RSelenium from CRAN, run:
To install the development version from GitHub, run:
To get started using
RSelenium you can look at the introduction vignette located in
RSelenium is installed or run
vignette("basics", package = "RSelenium")
or the basic vignette can be viewed here.
There is a second vignette dealing with running RSelenium on different browsers/OS locally and remotely which can be viewed at Driving OS/Browsers Local and Remote. Finally, you can read all about running a headless browser or running a normal browser on a headless server at Headless Browsing.
