Asynchronous WebDriver client


Asynchronous webdriver client built on asyncio.

Let's run a local Firefox instance.

from arsenic import get_session from arsenic.browsers import Firefox from import Geckodriver

async def example():
    # Runs geckodriver and starts a firefox session
    async with get_session(Geckodriver(), Firefox()) as session:
          # go to
          await session.get('')
          # wait up to 5 seconds to get the h1 element from the page
          h1 = await session.wait_for_element(5, 'h1')
          # print the text of the h1 element
          print(await h1.get_text())

Alternatively also other drivers can be run, e.g. Chromedriver or MSEdgeDriver
