Headless gecko driver using Selenium

0 votes

Can anybody help me how to make gecko driver headless?

I saw an example code for this:

from selenium import webdriver

from selenium.webdriver.firefox.options import Options

 

options = Options()

options.add_argument("--headless")

driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_options=options, 

executable_path="C:\\Utility\\BrowserDrivers\\geckodriver.exe")

print("Firefox Headless Browser Invoked")

driver.get('http://google.com/')

driver.quit()

 

It is showing download options under web driver unexpected.

Try the below steps. It works for me

·         Open a command prompt and navigate to the folder containing geckodriver.exe.

·         Then start the geckodriver.exe  from a command prompt.

·         Open another command prompt and type python and press the Return key.

·         Copy/paste the following code into your python session.

from selenium import webdriver

from selenium.webdriver.firefox.options import Options

from selenium.webdriver import Firefox


options = Options()

options.add_argument("--headless")

# Don't put the path to geckodriver in the following. But the firefox executable

# must be in the path. If not, include the path to firefox, not geckodriver below.

driver = Firefox(firefox_options=options)


print("Firefox Headless Browser Invoked")

driver.get('http://google.com/')


# Print the first 300 characters on the page.

print(driver.page_source[:300])

driver.quit()
