Sikuli integration with Selenium

This is supercool trick…


Sikuli – An introduction

SikuliXautomates anything you see on the screen of your desktop computer running on Windows/ Mac/Unix. It uses images patterns to identify and control GUI components.

This is useful when we try to automate a page developed using Flex, Adobe or Flash where the html DOM Structure is not defined easily.

That is why it is called as WYSIWYC – “what you see is what you script”

After reading the above introduction, my first impression as a selenium automation engg was “ May be sikuli is something very complex to learn and use in our day to day automation. Unless we spend some good amount of time in it, we can’t think of using Sikuli”

If your thoughts are similar to these, then you are the one to who is supposed to read this..

Let me give you quick step by step start on using sikuli…

What an idea Sirji!

Happy idea hunting…

The Pragmatist

Idea is something so obvious that after someone tells you about it you wonder why you didn’t think of it yourself 🙂

But an idea-prone would say “An idea is nothing more or less than a new combination of old elements” –James Webb Young

I know many who read lots of book and at the end just say “wow! That is an amazing read”, but what really matters is how you relate the information you read to the reality, analyzing and thinking about it, and then try to check if that will work to your context.
