BrowserOverflow

An all-in-one library for launching BrowserStack browsers.

Install

npm install browseroverflow

This library has a companion command line utility: browserstack-cli. Install browserstack-cli globally and run

browserstack setup

which will walk you through setting up your credentials and api keys for BrowserStack and download the jar required for tunneling. Once this is done, browseroverflow is ready to use.

API Walkthrough

Require it and create an instance

var BrowserStack = require('browseroverflow');
var bs = BrowserStack();

Get the list of available browsers on BrowserStack.

bs.browsers(function(err, browsers){
  if (!err){
    console.log('These are all the browsers', browsers);
  }
});

Launch a browser

bs.launch({
  browser: 'firefox', 
  browser_version: '14.0', 
  os: 'OS X',
  os_version: 'Mountain Lion',
  url: 'http://test.com'
}, function(err, job){
  if (!err){
    console.log('Created job ' + job.id);
  }
});

If you don't care about the OS and all that, you can omit most of them. The only settings that are required are browser, and url

bs.launch({
  browser: 'firefox', 
  url: 'http://test.com'
}, function(err, job){
  if (!err){
    console.log('Created job ' + job.id);
  }
});

List all launched browsers

bs.jobs(function(err, jobs){
  if (!err){
    console.log('These are all the active jobs', jobs);
  }
});

Kill a launched browser

bs.kill(aJobId, function(err, info){
  if (!err){
    console.log('Kill job ' + aJobId + ' which ran for ' + info.time);
  }
});

Kill all launched browsers

bs.killAll(function(err){
  if (!err){
    console.log('Killed all the jobs');
  }
});

Get the current API status

bs.status(function(err, status){
  if (!err){
    console.log('The status is: ', status);
  }
});

Setup a tunnel

bs.tunnel('localhost:7357', function(err){
  if (!err){
    console.log('Tunnel is running!');
  }
});
