Tired of searching for chrome-driver installation files and setting it up in the path, Here is a solution for you.
ChromeDriverBinaryAuto can be used to automatically detect the latest chrome-driver version required for the installed Chrome/Chromium browser.
Please make sure to install Chrome or Chromium first and add the browser to the binary search path.
pip install chromedriver-binary-auto
To redetect the required version and install the newest suitable chromedriver after the first installation simply reinstall the package using
pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall chromedriver-binary-auto
pip install git+https://github.com/danielkaiser/python-chromedriver-binary.git#chromedriver-binary-auto
To use chromedriver just
import chromedriver_binary. This will add the executable to your PATH so it will be found. You can also get the absolute filename of the binary with
from selenium import webdriver
import chromedriver_binary # Adds chromedriver binary to path
driver = webdriver.Chrome()
assert "Python" in driver.title
How it works:
This package installs a small shell script
chromedriver-path to easily set and export the PATH variable:
$ export PATH=$PATH:`chromedriver-path`
