Provide support for spoffing the physical geolocation on QA tests
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

If7a0d4e873fcecbe12a972a7b9e21a8d1b35c9be introduced a test for nearby on mobile but this will not always work as it uses the users current location and there may or may not be articles near that user.

Ideally we should create a dummy article with a known location and hard code the browser location so that it always reports a given location to take this element of uncertainty out of tests.

Can we get something in the selenium gem to support this.

As Jon pointed out to me, Chrome has an "Override Geolocation" under Settings/Overrides. So we just need to figure out how to get WebDriver tests to implement the same sort of override, and then we can set values for which we know matching content exists in our test environments.
