My code: const selenium = require("selenium-webdriver"); const By = selenium.By;

const driver = new selenium.Builder() .forBrowser("chrome") .build();

driver.get(URL); const locators = { inviteeForm: By.id("registrar") inviteeNameField: By.name("name") };

function addInvitee(name) { driver.findElement(locators.inviteeNameField) .sendKeys(name); driver.findElement(locators.inviteeForm).submit(); }

addInvitee("Bla Bla"); addInvitee("Bla Bla Bla");

const selenium = require('selenium-webdriver'); const chrome = require('selenium-webdriver/chrome'); const chromedriver = require('chromedriver');

const By = selenium.By;

chrome.setDefaultService(new chrome.ServiceBuilder(chromedriver.path).build()); const driver = new selenium.Builder().forBrowser('chrome').build(); const url = 'https://port-80TEST/';


const locators = { inviteeForm: By.id('registrar'), inviteeNameField: By.name('name') };

const addInvitee = (name) => { driver.findElement(locators.inviteeNameField).sendKeys(name); driver.findElement(locators.inviteeForm).submit(); };

addInvitee('Julian'); addInvitee('Mohamed'); addInvitee('Chris');

=====> type "node index.js" or whatever your script file is into the terminal. Only downside is pressing ctrl + c twice, to clear terminal after each time you run the script and not influencing the script dynamically through REPL.
