I'm trying to get Chromedriver to work with my cucumber BDD/watir-webdriver setup. 1) Cucumber+ firefox: works fine 2) irb + chromedriver: works fine 3) cucumber + chromedriver : doesn't work

Here's the setup I have: Mac OSX: 10.9.5

chromedriver location:

$ which chromedriver
/usr/local/bin/chromedriver
$ ls -lart /usr/local/bin/chromedriver
lrwxr-xr-x  1 user  admin  44 Dec 11 18:08 /usr/local/bin/chromedriver -> ../Cellar/chromedriver/2.12/bin/chromedriver

Here's my env.rb entries for chrome and firefox (firefox works):

case ENV['BROWSER']
  when 'chrome'
    browser = Watir::Browser.new :chrome
  when 'firefox'
    browser = Watir::Browser.new :firefox
end

command line I use to run tests, from project directory:

"cucumber features"

Error:

Unable to find the chromedriver executable. Please download the server from http://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/index.html and place it somewhere on your PATH. More info at http://code.google.com/p/selenium/wiki/ChromeDriver. (Selenium::WebDriver::Error::WebDriverError)

Process finished with exit code 1

I've also done the following:

  1. I added the chromedriver binary to a directory in the test suite project, then added the path to the binary, to the LOAD PATH; didn't fix the issue
  2. added the chromedriver path to the env.rb by adding the following: Selenium::WebDriver::Chrome.path = '/usr/local/bin/chromedriver'

This also didn't work, with exactly the same error above.

Anyone have any ideas?

After much searching, I found the solution, or at least got pointed in the right direction.

I edited my env.rb to include the following:

Selenium::WebDriver::Chrome::Service.executable_path = '/usr/local/bin/chromedriver' 

Cucumber now runs fine.
