How to Perform Angular Testing with Protractor?

How to Perform Angular Testing with ProtractorTesters often face a situation of delayed test times, especially while working with WebDriver.  This leads to frustration in crunch testing times. However, if you are working with Angular JS applications, Protractor proves to be the best tool.

It is an end-to-end testing framework built on top of WebDriver JS. It has been released as an open source and includes key enhancements meant for Angular JS applications.

Advantages with Protractor

Protractor can automatically communicate with the Angular JS application soon after executing the pending tasks and will perform the next step. This avoids the need to wait for the test and synchronization of the web page.

Angular JS locator strategies like binding, model, repeater along with native WebDriver locator strategies are supported. This helps in testing Angular-specific elements without any extra effort.

Protractor executes WebDriver command only when an action like get, click, etc. is required. This allows you to easily setup page objects and modify page elements without manipulating the HTML.

Same language can be used to write Angular JS unit tests, JavaScript, and Angular JS applications.

You can run the Protractor test by following the below mentioned points.

npm install -g protractor

webdriver-manager update & webdriver-manager start
