Does anyone know of any alternative to Selenium Grid's console?


We are thinking about building our own console. What I was asking was, are there any alternatives out there for the default Selenium console?

What functions of the console should it provide? – Niels van Reijmersdal Jun 11 '14 at 15:13
There is an API and a protocol. You can build your alternative. – user246 Jun 12 '14 at 12:33
I'd agree with Niels, it's probably worth giving some idea of what functionality you need or you'll either get no answers, or pretty random ones. I'll put this on hold for new answers to give you the time to add a bit more information. – testerab Jun 14 '14 at 5:15

I think the easiest way is to parse Grid Console's JSON response and then output it in your format.

You could look at selenium-grid-status project as an example.
