Practising Webdriver: recommend good apps?
I don't use Selenium in my workplace so I have to practice outside of work. Can anyone recommend some good applications with which to practice? There are obviously many websites, but I could do with some app's that allow me to practice such testing as:
1. Loging in with different users / user access levels
2. Creating assets (e.g. articles within a CMS)
3. Uploading and downloading files
Usually it's better to practice against something you have control over like a webserver running on your localhost than some one else's website.
You can install a LAMP or WAMP stack (Linux/Windows Apache MySQL PHP) on your own machine, or cloud server. And install some sort of popular CMS system like Wordpress on top of that. That should probably give you a good mix of different situations you can deal with.
You can install Mantis, Test link on your local (if you follow the instruction how to install software then it is really very easy, needs just LAMP and software - mantis, test link, etc) and perform research with selenium. Both application has different logins, roles, permissions, upload files ,etc.
