Geordi: Running headless Selenium tests

Geordi now supports our solution for running Selenium tests without having Firefox windows popping up all over your workspace.

This will stop Selenium windows from appearing on your desktop, but you can still inspect them when necessary.


Update geordi with gem install geordi.

Run geordi vnc --setup and follow the instructions.


geordi cucumber will automatically use VNC. Launchy will still open pages in the usual place.

geordi vnc will allow you to inspect the running features.

If "Then show me the page" stops working

Try updating launchy.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
