autobrowse

A simple browser automation helper, given you know where you want to run your browsers from. There is no automatic browser discovery (as per what browser-launcher does).

NPM

Why?

Unfortunately I require some functionality that differs from the way browser-launcher works at it's core. Chances are that for most people's use cases, browser-launcher is probably a better choice.

Reference

autobrowse

autobrowse(browserExecutable, uri, opts?, callback?)

Launch the specified browser executable targeting the specified uri. The opts arg can be used to specify particular option packs that you wish to enable when running the browser.

Acknowledgements

This module uses many tricks that browser-launcher does for creating profiles, etc. So massive thanks to @substack and other browser-launcher contributors for their efforts.

Automator

cleanup()

Placeholder cleanup method.

kill()

Close the process, run the cleanup method

Firefox Compatibility Layer

This is the compatibility layer for firefox.

Option Packs

Option Packs are used to modify browser functionality when being automated.

In most cases an option pack is enabled by simply calling autobrowse making use of the options argument. For instance, the following is code that you might use to launch a url in firefox nightly with the webrtc option pack enabled.

autobrowse('~/ff/nightly/firefox', 'http://google.com', { webrtc: true });

Firefox

webrtc

Make firefox simpler to automate when working with WebRTC. Specifically:

  • disable the permission dialog for media capture
  • enable the media source flag so we can load files for testing
