Using Extensions with Selenium (Python)

0
0

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.
