How to Run Capybara Tests for Ruby Applications in Remote Browsers

Eugene Melnikov


Do you have concerns about how your Ruby application works in Internet Explorer? Do you believe that checking for bugs by emulating previous versions with different modes is enough? Even if you skip some legacy versions, you can still face problems with lack of support for the JSON format, HTML5 tags, or ECMAScript, limitations for CSS selectors, and many other issues that cannot be detected by just changing browser mode. In fact, there are a lot of bugs that can only be reproduced on certain platforms and browsers.

To find such problems, I suggest you run your Capybara tests in remote browsers. Read this post on my GitHub page to find out how. I provide step-by-step instructions on how to use virtual machines and BrowserStack along with code that you can copy-paste to save time.
