    Protractor is an end-to-end test framework for Angular and AngularJS applications. Protractor is a Node.js program built on top of WebDriverJS. Protractor runs tests against your application running in a real browser, interacting with it as a user would.


    Protractor 5 is compatible with nodejs v6 and newer.

    Protractor works with AngularJS versions greater than 1.0.6/1.1.4, and is compatible with Angular applications. Note that for Angular apps, the binding and model locators are not supported. We recommend using by.css.

    Getting Started

    See the Protractor Website for most documentation.

    Once you are familiar with the tutorial, you’re ready to move on. To modify your environment, see the Protractor Setup docs. To start writing tests, see the Protractor Tests docs.

    To better understand how Protractor works with the Selenium WebDriver and Selenium Server see the reference materials.
