Nightwatch chromedriver error

+1 vote

Unable to run nightwatch tests on chrome.

Below is the modified nightwatch.json that I downloaded from nightwatch example:

{
  "src_folders" : ["./examples/tests"],
  "output_folder" : "./examples/reports",
  "custom_commands_path" : "./examples/custom-commands",
  "custom_assertions_path" : "",
  "globals_path" : "./examples/globals.json",
  "live_output" : false,

  "selenium" : {
    "start_process" : false,
    "server_path" : "/lib/sel-serv.jar",
    "log_path" : "",
    "host" : "127.0.0.1",
    "port" : 4444,
    "cli_args" : {
      "webdriver.chrome.driver" : "/lib/chromedriver/chromedriver.exe",
      "webdriver.ie.driver" : "",
      "webdriver.firefox.profile" : ""
    }
  },

  "test_settings" : {
    "default" : {
      "launch_url" : "http://localhost",
      "selenium_host" : "127.0.0.1",
      "selenium_port" : 4444,
      "silent" : true,
      "disable_colors": false,
      "screenshots" : {
        "enabled" : false,
        "path" : ""
      },
      "chrome":{
      "desiredCapabilities" : {
        "browserName" : "chrome",
        "javascriptEnabled" : true,
        "acceptSslCerts" : true
      }
      }
    },

      "desiredCapabilities": {
        "name" : "test-example",
        "browserName": "chrome"
      },
      "globals" : {
        "myGlobal" : "some_sauce_global"
      },
      "selenium" : {
        "start_process" : false
      }
  }
}

The error I get is this:

ERROR There was an error while starting the test runner:

I also found an older post which says you have to create new file in root directory so give it a try and nothing happened

You should use a dot before lib:

"webdriver.chrome.driver" : "./lib/chromedriver/chromedriver.exe",

and also in the selenium.jar:

"server_path" : "./lib/sel-serv.jar",
