Did you know that Protractor has a handy interactive mode to help with writing/debugging your end-to-end (e2e) tests?

It looks like elementexplorer has changed significantly since this lesson was recorded. I searched for some more up-to-date help on the topic, and came across elementor instead, which is pretty good.

Thanks John, I added a little note on the lesson.

When I try to run elementexplorer, I get

Hi Joel
I wasted about 10 minutes trying to debug the issue mentioned above. I'm getting the impression this lesson is 100% useless now. If that's the case, why not delete/ archive it?

Hi Raphi If you install protractor 2.5.1, you'll find this works. Paul
