Description: This is the web interface for the garðr validator project.

The main purpose is to find possible errors or regressions in display ads. Its intended to grow over time to a set of rules based on best practices for performance ( although displayads not necessarily can avoid document.write atm ).

The validator takes input as a scripturl or zipfile, html,css and javascript, and produces in 3 steps harvested data and a report.

How does the validator work?

It uses phantomJS as a browser, loads in a shim on top of the PhantomJS api, runs for a 10 seconds after all hooks have been innjected and data colelcted. After phantomjs run, the preoprocessors and validators/rules runs in a series to generate a report(info, warn, debug, error...).
