External Tools Settings

Expecco may use external programs to provide additional functionality. This dialog allows for the configuration of which executable is used in particular.

Shell (Win32 only)

Specify the program which is used to execute shell scripts. Notice, that under the Windows operating system, a UNIX bourne/korn-shell compatible shell has to be installed (for example as part of the cygwin package). This is only needed if your test suite includes script actions which are written in the UNIX shell command language AND your test suites are required to run unchanged under both Windows and UNIX operating systems.

Therefore, in most cases, this setting is not required.

Ruby Path

Specify which ruby interpreter to use for Ruby Elementary blocks. By default, the ruby command which is found along your PATH setting is used (i.e. the same as found when executing "ruby" on the command line). Of course, you have to have ruby installed on your machine.

This setting is not needed if you do not use any Ruby Elementary blocks.

Python Path

Specify which python interpreter to use for Python Elementary blocks. By default, the python command which is found along your PATH setting is used (i.e. the same as found when executing "python" on the command line). Of course, you have to have python installed on your machine.

This setting is not needed if you do not use any Python Elementary blocks.

Node.js Path

Specify which node.js interpreter to use for Node Elementary blocks. By default, the node command which is found along your PATH setting is used (i.e. the same as found when executing "node" on the command line). Of course, you have to have ruby installed on your machine.

This setting is not needed if you do not use any Python Elementary blocks.

HTML Viewer

Specify the program which is used to display online help documents. By default (if left blank), the configured web-browser (typically: Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer) is used. For security reasons, it is recommended to use Firefox or Safari as opposed to Internet Explorer.

PDF Viewer

Specify the program which is used to display generated report documents. By default, the configured PDF viewer (typically: acrobat reader) is used.


Wiki Folder

Should point to this Wiki (and obviously, it does already, otherwise you would probably not read this document)

External Text Editor

Specify the program to edit text attachments. Useful Linux/Unix settings are "xterm -e vi %1" or "xterm -e emacs %1". By default, a built in text editor (FileBrowser) is used.

External CSV Editor

Specify the program to edit CSV attachments. A useful Linux/Unix setting is "/opt/libreoffice/bin/office %1" or another excel-alike calculator which can read and write CSV files. By default, a built in text editor (FileBrowser) is used.
