Yes, Firepath and FireBug are dead! I am also so sorry for this. I loved both of them. They were very productive and handy tools for test automation engineers. But, The king is dead, long live the King! and the new King will be Ranorex Selocity! as I guess.
This tutorial will be one of the shortest ones. I will describe and announce to you the new chrome interrogation add-on Ranorex Selocity.
You can download and install it to chrome very easily. When you installed it, you will see its icon on chrome as shown below.
After this step, you can interrogate any web element with Ranorex Selocity (a.k.a Selocity).
1) You can right-click on any web element and go to “Copy Selector” and copy one of the selectors as you wish.
2) If you right-click on any web element and click “Inspect“, you will open Chrome Developer Tools and you will see Ranorex Selocity section at the right part of to tool.
3) When you click “Ranorex Selocity“, you will have many options to do as shown below figure.
4) You can also test your own selectors. Wow! This is great! :)
Hımmm, I think my CSS selector is better than the auto-generated one. What do you think? :)
That’s all guys! After Firebug’s and Firepath’s death, Selocity has been born and my first impressions are quite good. This tool is very promising!
See you in the next article!
