Date @ Ruby — In between dates during particular interval

Code:

require ‘date’

def check_weeks(dd1,dd2)
i=0
while dd1 <= dd2
dd1=dd1+0
if dd1+@interval < dd2
dd3=dd1+@interval
else
dd3=dd2
end
puts “Week from #{dd1} to #{dd3}”
dd1=dd3+1

i+=1
end
end

x=”2014/07/01″
y=”2014/07/30″

d1= Date.new(x.split(“/”)[0].to_i, x.split(“/”)[1].to_i,x.split(“/”)[2].to_i)
d2= Date.new(y.split(“/”)[0].to_i, y.split(“/”)[1].to_i,y.split(“/”)[2].to_i)

#Chnage the interval
@interval = 2

check_weeks(d1,d2)

 

Output:

 

>ruby helper.rb
Week from 2014-07-01 to 2014-07-03
Week from 2014-07-04 to 2014-07-06
Week from 2014-07-07 to 2014-07-09
Week from 2014-07-10 to 2014-07-12
Week from 2014-07-13 to 2014-07-15
Week from 2014-07-16 to 2014-07-18
Week from 2014-07-19 to 2014-07-21
Week from 2014-07-22 to 2014-07-24
Week from 2014-07-25 to 2014-07-27
Week from 2014-07-28 to 2014-07-30
>Exit code: 0

 

Change the @interval = 2 to any interval and implement it in your code

Running Watir webdriver scripts in Browser Stack Environment

Running Watir webdriver scripts in Browser Stack Environment

Why it is required?:

If we need to run the scripts in more than 5 machines with different OS and browser versions then we may need to invest more in infrasturure. To aviod this, we will have Test server in Browserstack.

 

1. Create trail account in http://www.browserstack.com/

2. Copy the Authentication URL from your acoutn page

3. Run the below code

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘watir-webdriver’

include Selenium

caps = WebDriver::Remote::Capabilities.htmlunit(:javascript_enabled => true)
caps.platform = :WINDOWS
caps[:name] = “Watir WebDriver”
caps[:browser] = “chrome”
caps.version = 20
caps[“browserstack.debug”] = “true”
caps[“browserstack.tunnel”] = true

browser = Watir::Browser.new(:remote,
:url => “PASTE BTASCK URL HERE”, # Sample http://raveendran:x6XqqrJzJ9gUZ7sr@hub.browserstack.com/wd/hub
:desired_capabilities => caps)

browser.goto “http://google.com/&#8221;

sleep 9 # You should use wait methods instead of sleep
puts browser.title
browser.quit

Pros:

Easy implementation with any exisitng framework

Cons:

The execution speed will be 2x~3x slow when comparing with your local machine execution.

Watir / Selenium Web Driver – Browser Downloads — Solution to download pdf files automatically in firefox 20+ version

 

Solution to download pdf files automatically in firefox 20+ version using Selenium webdriver or Watir webdriver

 

Description:

I have tried to save PDF files automatically using the below link — http://watirwebdriver.com/browser-downloads/  and I have followed the same as per the mentioned page and reference website. But still the firefox browser not downloaded PDF files automatically.

Reason:

In Firefox latest versions, They have added new function called as ‘Portable Document Format’ which causes the issue

Solution:

Please try the below code for latest firefox versions.

download_directory = "#{Dir.pwd}/downloads"

download_directory.gsub!("/", "\\") if Selenium::WebDriver::Platform.windows?
profile = Selenium::WebDriver::Firefox::Profile.new
profile['browser.download.folderList'] = 2 # custom location
profile['browser.download.dir'] = download_directory
profile['browser.helperApps.neverAsk.saveToDisk'] = "text/csv,application/pdf"

profile[‘pdfjs.disabled’] = true
profile[‘pdfjs.firstRun’] = false

b = Watir::Browser.new :firefox, :profile => profile
Note:
profile[‘pdfjs.disabled’] = true
profile[‘pdfjs.firstRun’] = false
These 2 lines are added. Thats it 🙂
