node-browserstack

A node.js JavaScript client for working with BrowserStack through its API.

Installation

npm install browserstack

Usage

var BrowserStack = require( "browserstack" );
var client = BrowserStack.createClient({
    username: "foo",
    password: "p455w0rd!!1"
});

client.getBrowsers(function( error, browsers ) {
    console.log( "The following browsers are available for testing" );
    console.log( browsers );
});

API

browser objects

A common pattern in the API is a "browser object" which is just a plain object with the following properties:

  • os: The operating system.
  • browser: The browser name.
  • device: The device name.
  • version: The browser or device version.

A browser object may only have one of browser or device set; which property is set will depend on os.

V1 does not support multiple operating systems. As such, there is no os version, and browser objects will always use browser.

worker objects

Worker objects are extended browser objects which contain the following additional properties:

  • id: The worker id.
  • status: A string representing the current status of the worker.
    • Possible statuses: "running", "queue".

BrowserStack.createClient( settings )

Creates a new client instance.

  • settings: A hash of settings that apply to all requests for the new client.
    • username: The username for the BrowserStack account.
    • password: The password for the BrowserStack account.
    • version (optional; default: 2): Which version of the BrowserStack API to use.

client.getBrowsers( callback )

Gets the list of available browsers.

  • callback (function( error, browsers )): A callback to invoke when the API call is complete.

client.createWorker( settings, callback )

Creates a worker.

  • settings: A hash of settings for the worker (an extended browser object).
    • os: Which OS to use for the new worker.
    • browser/device: Which browser/device to use in the new worker. Which property to use depends on the OS.
    • version: Which version of the specified browser to use.
    • url (optional): Which URL to navigate to upon creation.
    • timeout (optional): Maximum life of the worker (in seconds). Use 0 for "forever" (BrowserStack will kill the worker after 1,800 seconds).
  • callback (function( error, worker )): A callback to invoke when the API call is complete.

Note: A special value of "latest" is supported for version, which will use the latest stable version.

client.getWorker( id, callback )

Gets the status of a worker.

  • id: The id of the worker.
  • callback (function( error, worker )): A callback to invoke when the API call is complete.

client.terminateWorker( id, callback )

Terminates an active worker.

  • id: The id of the worker to terminate.
  • callback (function( error, data )): A callback to invoke when the API call is complete.
    • data: An object with a time property indicating how long the worker was alive.

client.getWorkers( callback )

Gets the status of all workers.

  • callback (function( error, workers )): A callback to invoke when the API call is complete.

client.getLatest( browser, callback )

Gets the latest version of a browser.

  • browser: Which browser to get the latest version for.
  • callback (function( error, version )): A callback to invoke when the version is determined.
    • version: The latest version of the browser.

client.getLatest( callback )

Gets the latest version of all browsers.

  • callback (function( error, versions )): A callback to invoke when the versions are determined.
    • versions: A hash of browser names and versions.
