For Selenium 2.0 (and above), I think we just need to
pip install selenium. No need to install the stuff below.
Note: I think the FireFox extension is mainly useful for building the XPath selectors. I don’t think the FireFox extension will build python scripts for use with version 2 of Selenium. Currently the version 2 scripts for python will need to be hand-coded. For a sample script see python.
Open the Selenium IDE by selecting Tools, Selenium IDE. Note: The record button will already be selected.
Record your actions in the browser.
To add a test, select some text and right click… The IDE will present a list of test outlines…
To finish the test, click the record button.
To replay the test, click the play button.
To save the File, Export Test Case As…, Python 2 (Remote Control) or (for WebDriver, JUnit 4 WebDriver Backed).
