Headless Nightwatch Tests
Waltir | 2019-05-02
The Nightwatch documentation unfortunately does not cover how to run your tests in a headless mode so I thought it would be worth writing a small post about it. For those of you that are not familiar with the term ‘headless’ it simply means running a automated browser window that does not physically appear anywhere on your machine.
To enable headless this headless mode you’ll want to add
”headless” to your
”chromeOptions” like so:
|// The environment below is named 'headless' and is located in our nightwatch.conf.js file.|
|"headless", // This is the line that tells nightwatch to run in a headless mode|
That’s all it takes to initiate a headless mode in Nightwatch. Hopefully this is able to help some of my fellow Nightwatch users out.
