Any idea how we can identify based on some simple criteria(element attr, some meta info etc that need to be generic ) the hosted/deployed/running web-app is made of using react.
By looking / inspect / analyze we can say that the application running based on react application partially or fully.
e.g. like every angular app is identified using ng-version attribute ?
Vivek krishna Varma
one way i found window.REACT_DEVTOOLS_APPEND_COMPONENT_STACK var . looks like this is available only in case of react apps is this the good criteria ?

Hi it's been a while since I logged into Gitter
Just wanted to say hi. I will have
Hi @cnishina :) As you're most likely aware - a lot of the questions I see lately are wondering about the future of protractor (maintainers, v6, jasmine3, etc). Any updates on your end? Or is there a good thread to follow? Thanks!!
Craig Nishina
Yup sorry I went on an airplane.
We also are trying to figure that out with the angular team.
We will keep everyone posted
Alright well I need to catch another flight soon. Happy testing.
IE browser is not working with protractor e2e

I get this error when compiling my TypeScript. I followed the repo's Typescript example, but to no avail. What is going wrong ?
node_modules/protractor/built/index.d.ts:5:10 - error TS2440: Import declaration conflicts with local declaration of 'PluginConfig'.

5 import { PluginConfig, ProtractorPlugin } from './plugins';

node_modules/protractor/built/index.d.ts:5:24 - error TS2440: Import declaration conflicts with local declaration of 'ProtractorPlugin'.

Hi guys, I don't know if anyone can help me, I want to run protractor against differents browser but I want to send the browser by command line, I can't find documentation or examples about that can you help me?
Bastien Michaux Bellomo
Regarding my previous post, this is caused by a breaking TypeScript change, fix your project by compiling TS using npx tsc and downgrading your TS version to ~3.6
Hi All, anyone able to point me at some documentation that works for a JS project that calls protractor and cucumber. We have been using allure but can't seem to get it top output to allure.

Hi @mourasman / @All , It would be very grateful if you help me in this

// Every test case structure

describe("Login Suite", () => {
beforeEach(async function () {

//browser instance initialization & application navigation is happening here


it('Test case name', async function () {
    try {

    // Include test steps        

    } catch (e) {"Test SWM-2019065 failed with exception: " + e)
        expect(true).toBe(false, e)

afterEach(async function () {
    //await browser.restart();
//await browser.close();




//Programming language used is javascript (promises flow disabled) : using async await to disable the asynchronous nature of javascript

My evrery test case in test suite has strcuture like above. Now, How can i want every test case belonging to test suite to be run in a sequence following the trend like

  1. Opening of browser instance for a first test case & running the whole test case which is happening
  2. then closing the above instance of first test case irrespective of the failure/success run.
  3. Now opening the new browser instance for 2nd test case-->>running whole test case--->>closing the browser instance of this particular test case--->>
  4. Now opening the new browser instance for 3rd test case-->>running whole test case--->>closing the browser instance of this particular test case--->>

Is this advisable to run the test suite in this way ? If yes, then how should i manage with the commands like browser.close() or whatever your approach is. I have tried this but getting such errors like "AfterAll Failed: invalid session id" . Kindly provide your inputs.

Does anybody have knowledge about this ???????????????????????

Not sure what issue is as I've ran webdriver-manager update and webdriver-manager start before running protractor command.
I'm starting to implementing e2e tests on a project and i'll be using protractor/jasmine (the setup that comes from the cli). Can someone share a project with a decent organization of the tests?
Brandon Gibbons
@nunofreitasbotelho I don't have any full examples of test structure, but there are some resources to help out on the website:,
Rick van der Meij
supports angular 8 and angular 9 RC11
Thank you both @GibbsB & @rickvandermey , i'll take a look on that

Hey guys, I have a problem with running my script. For some reason node_modules folder in my App Data folder is being targeted instead of the one in my project folder when using VS Code terminal. Also it keeps saying my chromedriver is outdated even though i updated it globally and locally.
Using Protractor with Jasmine

Any help would be appreciated

Brandon Gibbons
@Dzanan91 That error is a mismatch between the chromedriver (v74.0.3729.6) and the chrome browser, which are different things. Try to see which version your chrome browser is in Help -> About Google Chrome. If you have multiple versions of Chrome Browser in your project, you will have to target the right one to match your chromedriver. Your chromedriver version only supports Chrome Browser v74. The latest of chromedriver should 80.x.x.x, so you might not be getting the latest with your webdriver-manager update command.
I have latest version of chrome browser
And have installed latest chromedriver stable version ( 79 )
still for some reason doesnt read the latest chromedriver version
and returns error as shown in screenshot above
so weird
Brandon Gibbons
First thing I would do is remove that global install from that roaming/npm/node_modules directory. Chromedriver 79 definitely shouldn't be returning an error related to Chrome 74
okay let me try that

Hi, Would like to know that, can we automate a PDF loaded in browser using Protractor?
Hello guys, I need some debugging tips. I am using Angular 8, and Google Chrome 80.x.x.x.x
I have a test that logs in the system, by sendKeys for login and password, press a button, and then try to fill 2 more form fields, name and description also with sendKeys.
The script goes well until the last description field, when it freezes.
I have switched the order, filling description first, and the system freezes at the name. So, it seems that my finder is correctly designed.
I am using async and await pattern
@hfsoares could you post snippet of code
navBarGrupos = new NavBarGrupos();
await navBarGrupos.clickOnCrieNovoGrupo();
grupoUpdatePage = new GrupoUpdatePage();
grupoCabecalhoPage = new GrupoCabecalhoPage();
await grupoUpdatePage.setNomeInput('nome'),
await grupoUpdatePage.setDescricaoInput('descricao')
this is the test.spec (the names are in portuguese)
this is the page finder elements
editForm = element('editForm'));
nomeInput = this.editForm.element('field_nome'));
descricaoInput = this.editForm.element('field_descricao'));
I have tried whitout the editForm, and it behaves the same way
async setNomeInput(nome: string): Promise<void> {
await this.nomeInput.sendKeys(nome);
this is the "typer"
async setNomeInput(nome: string): Promise<boolean> { await this.nomeInput.sendKeys(nome).then(()=>{ }); }
await grupoUpdatePage.setNomeInput('nome').then(async (value)=>{ await expect(value).toBe(true) });
I will try that... but why would work?
