Stand Alone Geb Utility

We needed a way for resources to get into automated testing quicker, and the biggest issue we have found with the majority of our resources is fear of the selector… What we wanted to give them was a quick and easy way to test out selectors and get a bit more immediate feedback. To do so we created the following:

Geb Command Practice Utility

This allows new resources to get in and immediately play with geb. You can basically do anything on the browser or a currently selected navigator. There are a couple of nuissances though:

  1. You must input a new url as go ‘’ (The initial command expects you to input a full url)
  2. Working off of the current navigator doesn’t always do what you’d expect. I found issues when I attempted to filter off of a Navigator which had previously been located

Beyond that you can do anything you would expect off of the browser / navigator objects.
