How can I use Selenium in the background

0 votes
I'm currently working on Selenium and I use chrome driver, but when I run the test scripts, it opens a window. Is there any way that it can access the internet without the window popup?

The code is:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys

driver = webdriver.Chrome()

driver.get("https://www.edureka.co/community")
elem = driver.find_element_by_name("account")
elem.send_keys("Username")
elem2 = driver.find_element_by_name("pass")
elem2.send_keys("Password")
elem.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)

driver.quit()

Here all I'll doing is put in a username and password, but I want to do this without the browser popup if it's possible.

Thanks in advance!

Hey there!

I would suggest you try using a headless PhantomJs GhostDriver, this is something new and this is the native Selenium Webdriver way of doing it.

You can download PhantomJs executables from http://phantomjs.org/download.html.

driver = webdriver.PhantomJS("./phantomjs") # path to phantomjs binary
driver.get("https://ps.rsd.edu/public/")

elem = driver.find_element_by_name("account")
elem.send_keys("Username")
elem2 = driver.find_element_by_name("pw")
elem2.send_keys("Password")
elem.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)

driver.quit()

Hope this helps:)
