Testing Single Page Web App using CasperJS

Submitted by Akshay Mathur (@akshaymathur) on Wednesday, 25 December 2013

Section: Full talk Technical level: Beginner Status: Rejected


To introduce CasperJS as a testing tool. It is especially important for testing Single Page Web App where the DOM in browser changes dynamically and most of traditional tools fail.


During the session we shall try understanding the limitations of traditional testing automation tools are failing to test modern Single Page Web Apps.

Then we shall discuss how CasperJS overcome those limitations and becomes a good tool for testing modern web apps.

We shall also discuss putting a framework around CaserJS for making the test suite development data-driven, In this way all the team members will be able to contribute without learning CasperJS and testing automation will not run behind the UI development.


The attendees should have general understanding of software testing, web technologies like HTML, web browsers etc. and knowledge of Javascript.

    Akshay, I think this is better suited for Rootconf, which covers test automation. Rootconf is in April.
