C# XUnit Protractor Angular JS Testing
Protractor is an end-to-end test framework for AngularJS. The official version is built on Node.js and Selenium WebDriverJS. Protractor.NET, a .NET port of Protractor built on top of Selenium WebDriver for .NET. It allows us to write Angular UI tests using .NET testing frameworks such as NUnit, MSTest or XUnit. This post is about writing End to End tests for angular app with XUnit and Protractor.Net. Unlike WebDriver, Protractor understands Angular digest cycle and blocks until the digest cycle has finished, which helps us to write better test code. As I want to test my ASP.NET Core application, I choose XUnit, instead of NUnit or MS Test. Here is my project.json. Protractor is not available for DNX Core, so I had to remove that reference.
