NuGet package - Selenium WebDriver GeckoDriver

NuGet Package

What's this?

This NuGet package install Gecko Driver for Selenium WebDriver into your Unit Test Project.

"geckodriver(.exe)" does not appear in Solution Explorer, but it is copied to the output folder from the package folder when the build process.

NuGet package restoring ready, and no need to commit "geckodriver(.exe)" binary into source code control repository.

How to install?

For example, at the package manager console on Visual Studio, enter the following command.

PM> Install-Package Selenium.WebDriver.GeckoDriver

Cross-platform building and publishing

By default - it depends on the OS running the build process

By default, the platform type of the web driver file copied to the output folder depends on the OS running the build process.

  • When you build the project which references the NuGet package of geckodriver on 32bit Windows OS, win32 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.
  • When you build the project which references the NuGet package of geckodriver on 64bit Windows OS, win64 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.
  • When you build it on macOS, macOS x64 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.
  • When you build it on any Linux distributions, Linux x64 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.

Method 1 - Specify "Runtime Identifier"

When you specify the "Runtime Identifier (RID)" explicitly, the platform type of the driver file is the same to the RID which you specified. (it doesn't depends on the which OS to use for build process.)

You can specify RID as a MSBuild property in a project file,

<PropertyGroup>
  <RuntimeIdentifier>win-x64</RuntimeIdentifier>
</PropertyGroup>

or, as a command-line -r option for dotnet build command.

> dotnet build -r:osx.10.12-x64
  • When the RID that starts with "win" and contains "x86" is specified, win32 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.
  • When the RID that starts with "win" and contains "x64" is specified, win64 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.
  • When the RID that starts with "osx" is specified, macOS x64 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.
  • When the RID that starts with "linux" is specified, Linux x64 version of geckodriver will be copied to the output folder.

If you specify another pattern of RID like "ubuntu.18.04-x64", the platform type of the web driver file which will be copied to the output folder depends on the OS running the build process. (default behavior.)

Method 2 - Specify "GeckoDriverPlatform" msbuild property

You can control which platform version of geckodriver will be copied by specifying "GeckoDriverPlatform" MSBuild property.

"GeckoDriverPlatform" MSBuild property can take one of the following values:

  • "win32"
  • "win64"
  • "mac64"
  • "linux64"

You can specify "GeckoDriverPlatform" MSBuild property in a project file,

<PropertyGroup>
  <GeckoDriverPlatform>win32</GeckoDriverPlatform>
</PropertyGroup>

or, command-line -p option for dotnet build command.

> dotnet build -p:GeckoDriverPlatform=mac64

The specifying "GeckoDriverPlatform" MSBuild property is the highest priority method to control which platform version of geckodriver will be copied.

If you run the following command on Windows OS,

> dotnet build -r:ubuntu.18.04-x64 -p:GeckoDriverPlatform=mac64

The driver file of macOS x64 version will be copied to the output folder.

How to include the driver file into published files?

"geckodriver(.exe)" isn't included in published files on default configuration. This behavior is by design.

If you want to include "geckodriver(.exe)" into published files, please define _PUBLISH_GECKODRIVER compilation symbol.

define _PUBLISH_GECKODRIVER compilation symbol

Another way, you can define PublishGeckoDriver property with value is "true" in MSBuild file (.csproj, .vbproj, etc...) to publish the driver file instead of define compilation symbol.

  <Project ...>
    ...
    <PropertyGroup>
      ...
      <PublishGeckoDriver>true</PublishGeckoDriver>
      ...
    </PropertyGroup>
...
</Project>

You can also define PublishGeckoDriver property from the command line -p option for dotnet publish command.

> dotnet publish -p:PublishGeckoDriver=true
Note

PublishGeckoDriver MSBuild property always override the condition of define _PUBLISH_GECKODRIVER compilation symbol or not. If you define PublishGeckoDriver MSBuild property with false, then the driver file isn't included in publish files whenever define _PUBLISH_GECKODRIVER compilation symbol or not.

Appendix

Where is geckodriver.exe saved to?

geckodriver(.exe) exists at
" {solution folder} /packages/Selenium.WebDriver.GeckoDriver. {ver} /driver/ {platform}"
folder.

 {Solution folder}/
  +-- packages/
  |   +-- Selenium.WebDriver.GeckoDriver.{version}/
  |       +-- driver/

          +-- Release/
              +-- geckodriver(.exe) (copy from above by build process)

And package installer configure MSBuild task such as .csproj to copy geckodriver(.exe) into the output folder during the build process.
