Running Selenium Hub and Node(s) Using Docker

  1. start hub (clients connect to this)

     $ docker run -d -P --name selenium-hub -e GRID_TIMEOUT=10000 selenium/hub
  2. start chrome node (hub delegates work to it)

     $ docker run -d --link selenium-hub:hub selenium/node-chrome

Get host and port for “selenium-hub” container and use them in your client.

Example client config

var options = {
	host: "",
	port: 32768,
	desiredCapabilities: {
		browserName: 'chrome'
