Today I will talk about Chropath which is a FREE XPath Tool for Developers & Testers!!!
Recently I started a community for my QA friends & colleagues as Facebook Group(QA Talks @ WeTesterr) & We invited my friend Sanjay Kumar (Inventor & Creator of ChroPath) for our Tech Podcast series event.

We discussed about all silent features of #Chropath & I was really surprised by myself after end of the session.
Chropath has evolved a lot since its inception days, from that point I decided to write this post many thanks to Sanjay Kumar for inventing such amazing tool.

And here we are, let's discuss about all silent features of this amazing tool, which is helping so many automation guys & making impact in community.

ChroPath is Developer tool which we can leverage to generate our unique xpath & all other selectors while we write UI automation scripts.

for e.g. id/class/cssSelectors in just a single click.

All excellent features of Chropath are listed below.

  • It supports SVG elements, iframe.
  • It can generate xpath based on our custom given attribute such as data-testId (which is mostly being used now a days to avoid failures in test automation).
  • Single click locators generation in a single shot
  • Verify and modify locators of page object file.
  • Chropath supports dynamic locators be it CSS/XPATH.
  • Automatic saving of all configuration in local
  • It can generate complete page automation scripts now.
  • It can generate plan English test cases scripts & saves lot of time for us.

I believe the last feature is just so powerful,which would be very handy during exploratory testing, for any project different testing phases such as Regression/Sanity/UAT etc.. now we have power to generate the test cases even for monkey/exploratory testing.

by this way feedback loop will be short among DEV & QA, you don't need to spend much time in reproducing the bug again with Dev, you can just pass this auto generate script to DEV.
