9. cbtr-testem-browserstack-init

This executable helps you generate testem.json - Testem’s settings - from cross-browser-tests-runner Settings that includes BrowserStack browsers.

NOTE: Please note that browsers from other platforms would not work even if they are included in the settings file.

9.2. Questions asked

The utility would ask you the following questions:

  • Are you using multiple tunnels with different identifiers? (y/n) [If unsure, choose "n"]
    • BrowserStack supports multiple tunnels with different identifiers as well as a single tunnel without any id. If your tests need multiple tunnels, choose ‘y’, or else ‘n’. The tool would generate tunnel IDs in case you chose ‘y’.
  • Do you need to take screenshots of your tests once completed? (y/n)
  • Do you need to take video of your test? (y/n)
    • Some browsers may not support taking a video, and this behavior is pretty dynamic. So you need to experiment and figure out for yourself.
  • Please provide a timeout value [60]
    • Minimum timeout on BrowserStack has to be 60 seconds.
