browserstack-cli

Awesome command line interface for the browserstack api.

Installation

npm install -g browserstack-cli

Usage

Setup

Setup your credentials and API key. This will prompt for your BrowserStack username/password and your tunneling API keys, which you can get from their automated browser testing page and local testing page while you are logged in.

browserstack setup

Available Browsers

Get a list of available browsers:

browserstack browsers

Launch a Browser

Launch firefox 3.6 and point it to google.com:

browserstack launch firefox:3.6 http://google.com

Launch will use the latest version if none is specified:

browserstack launch firefox http://google.com

Using the --attach option keeps the program running until it receives a SIGTERM or a SIGINT (CTRL-C) signal, at which point it kills the remote browser and then exits.

browserstack launch --attach firefox http://google.com

Can you launch mobile browsers? Yes.

browserstack launch "iPhone 5" http://google.com
