Jenkins ChromeDriver plugin

December 28th, 2011

I released Jenkins ChromeDriver plugin that auto-installs chromedriver on all slaves. Here is why this is useful.

ChromeDriver is needed to run WebDriver-based tests with Chrome. Unfortunately this is a native program, so in a heterogenous Jenkins, you need to make sure you have the right binary available on each of the slaves. While that’s not hard, it’s awfully tedious. This plugin fixes that by automating it.

This plugin would be a nice companion to the recently upgraded Selenium Grid plugin that automatically runs Selenium Grid on top of your Jenkins slaves. When you combined, you just install two plugins to the Jenkins master, and without touching slaves at all, you got the whole cluster instantly ready for Selenium2 WebDriver testing. How is that?
