Thread: Accessing the file system

  1. #1

    Default Accessing the file system

    I have a screen on my app that downloads a file from the server. Is there currently functionality that would allow sencha test to access the file system to read the file and delete it when it is done? I also may need to test file uploads in the future so being able to access the file system through sencha test would be great. Is this possible or planned currently?

    In WebDriver scenarios, your test code is actually running in an Electron child process, so you can simply use the Node.js API. Suppose you want to read a JSON file:

    var fs = require('fs'),
        people = JSON.parse(fs.readFileSync('/home/jvoorhees/people.json', 'utf8'));
    console.log(people); // hope I don't see my name here #badjokeeel
    For in-browser scenarios, you can easily serve a directory from the local filesystem via HTTP using Sencha Cmd. Then just request the files via HTTP:
