Full Description


Out-of-the-box Selenium image with Chrome. Can be used as a standalone instance or as a node for Selenium Grid.


To download the latest version from Docker Hub, just execute the following command:

docker pull prowareness/selenium-node-chrome

To create the image prowareness/selenium-node-chrome, execute the following command on the containers/node-chrome/ folder:

docker build -t prowareness/selenium-node-chrome .

You can now push your new image to the registry:

docker push prowareness/selenium-node-chrome

Running your image as a stand-alone solution

Start a container using the Chrome image:

docker run -d --p 4444:4444 --name chrome-standalone prowareness/selenium-node-chrome

Thats it! You can now use it by providing your RemoteWebDriver class with the url http://localhost:4444/wd/hub

Running your image in combination with hub image

You can use the docker image prowareness/selenium-hub to create a grid with the hub and one or more nodes.
See the description of the hub image for more information.

To start a grid with a Chrome node, execute the following commands:

Start the hub and give it a name:

docker run -d -p 4444:4444 --name grid-hub prowareness/selenium-hub

Start the Chrome node and link it to the hub:

docker run -d --link grid-hub:hub --name grid-ff prowareness/selenium-node-chrome

How to setup RemoteWebDriver

Chrome uses the SetUID bit to create a sandbox in which in runs. Since Docker runs the container without privileges to
provide this, you have to set the argument no-sandbox on your ChromeOptions object and pass it to the RemoteWebDriver object.

Another option is to pass the --privileged flag to the docker run command, but this is not recommended.

Thats it! You can now use it by providing your RemoteWebDriver class with the url http://localhost:4444/wd/hub.
