I am currently using Selenium to run instances of Chrome to test web pages. Each time my script runs, a clean instance of Chrome starts up (clean of extensions, bookmarks, browsing history, etc). I was wondering if it’s possible to run my script with Chrome extensions. I’ve tried searching for a Python example, but nothing came up when I googled this.
You should use Chrome WebDriver options to set a list of extensions to load. Here’s an example:
import os from selenium import webdriver from selenium.webdriver.chrome.options import Options executable_path = "path_to_webdriver" os.environ["webdriver.chrome.driver"] = executable_path chrome_options = Options() chrome_options.add_extension('path_to_extension') driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path=executable_path, chrome_options=chrome_options) driver.get("http://stackoverflow.com") driver.quit()
Hope that helps.
