Announcing ChromeWatir release 1.0.0

I am happy to announce that the first version of ChromeWatir has been released today. ChromeWatir gives a way to test web applications in Google Chrome browser. It follows a Watir like API though there are a few differences we are trying to iron out. Please visit the ChromeWatir Google code website for more details

We are in the process of making it better by stabilizing it as well adding more functionality like containers and elements support. Details about the next release will be put into the wiki once finalized.

The first release is available as gem in the downloads page.
As well the source can be checked out through SVN. Please see the source tab of the project for more information.

I'm having problems running the ChromeWatir:

c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/chrome_watir-1.0.0/lib/chrome_watir/launcher.rb:18:in `exist?': can't convert nil into String (TypeError)
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/chrome_watir-1.0.0/lib/chrome_watir/launcher.rb:18:in `start'

I think the problem is the Google Chrome path is not on the PATH variable on Vista.

Another thing... are you going to implement the methods: links, hiddens, text_fields, radios... to get all the controls like in watir and firewatir.

Thanks a lot for your work.

Sorry for the late reply... Yes we are looking for compatibility with Watir API but it may take sometime for us to reach.

Let us know if you face any problems.

Sai
