Exposes 3 tasks:

browserstack_list

Lists the available browsers to the console

browserstack_list: {
  dev: {
    username: 'USERNAME',
    password: 'PASSWORD'
  }
}

browserstack

Starts the requested workers with BrowserStack. Optionally starts a BrowserStack tunnel to expose a local server to the workers.

This task does not exit untli the user presses a key at which time the workers are stopped again. Errors may occur when stopping the workers if they have timed out in the intervening period.

browserstack: {
  dev: {
    credentials: {
      username: 'USERNAME',
      password: 'PASSWORD'
    },
    // optional tunnel configuration - if omitted a tunnel is not started
    tunnel: {
      // your BrowserStack API key
      key: 'KEY',
      // a list of hostnames and ports to expose
      hosts: [{
        name: 'HOSTNAME',
        port: PORT,
        sslFlag: 0
      }]
    },
    // required worker start configuration
    start: {
      // time to wait for workers to start running
      queueTimeout: QUEUE_TIMEOUT,
      // default URL for started workers
      url: 'URL',
      // default timeout for started workers
      timeout: TIMEOUT,
      // list of browser types to start, as returned from the list function
      browsers: [{
        os: 'OS',
        browser: 'BROWSER',
        version: 'VERSION',
        // override the default URL
        url: 'URL',
        // override the default worker timeout
        timeout: TIMEOUT
      }, {
        os: 'OS',
        browser: 'BROWSER',
        version: 'VERSION',
        // override the default URL
        url: 'URL',
        // override the default worker timeout
        timeout: TIMEOUT
      }]
    }
  }
}

    username: 'USERNAME',
