Automate chrome apps

Chrome apps written using webview are different than iFrames because webview is a separate process.

With Selenium 2.20 it is possible to automate chrome apps written using webview.

driver = webdriver.Chrome(desired_capabilities={'chromeOptions':{'windowTypes':['webview']}})

driver.get('chrome://apps')

wait_for_new_window_to_appear()

driver.switch_to.window(driver.window_handles[1])

self.driver.find_element_by_id('Email').send_keys('[email protected]')

driver.find_element_by_id('Passwd').send_keys(getpass.getpass())

driver.find_element_by_id('signIn').click()
