Karma and Protractor in a docker container

This image allows to run javascript tests in a headless machine like a CI server.

This image support karma and protractor test under chromium.

Unfortunately, chromium doesn't support container (, you need to start chromium with --no-sandbox argument to avoid this.

To configure karma and protractor, use this snippets:


browsers: ['Chromium_no_sandbox'],
customLaunchers: {
  Chromium_no_sandbox: {
    base: 'ChromiumHeadless',
    flags: ['--no-sandbox']

ChromiumHeadless is available since karma-chrome-launcher@2.2.0, on previous versions use:

base: 'Chromium',
flags: ['--no-sandbox', '--headless', '--disable-gpu', '--remote-debugging-port=9222']


capabilities: {
  'browserName': 'chrome',
  'chromeOptions': {
    'args': ['no-sandbox', 'headless', 'disable-gpu']

Headless mode

Chromium recently added headless support.

If you don't want to use the headless mode, use

Alpine Headless

To use alpine instead of debian, follow headless instructions and add this to protractor config :

chromeDriver: '/usr/bin/chromedriver',

Gitlab CI
