Running a server

var TestCafeRemote = require('testcafe-rpc');

//Options for TestCafé instance
var opt = {
        controlPanelPort: 1337,
        servicePort: 1338,
        testsDir: 'YOUR_TESTS_DIR',
        browsers: {
            'Mozilla Firefox': {
                path: "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe",
                icon: "ff",
                cmd: "-new-window"
            }
        }
    },
    rpcPort = 1339;

//Create TestCafé server instance with given options which can be accessed via RPC on port 1339.
var testCafeServer = new TestCafeRemote.Server(opt, rpcPort);

//Returned object exposes standard TestCafé API, so you can use it as a regular TestCafé instance.
testCafeServer.runTests({ browsers: testCafeServer.listAvailableBrowsers() }, function (errors, taskUid, workers) {
    //do smthg...
});

Running a client

var TestCafeRemote = require('testcafe-rpc');

var rpcHostname = 'myhostname',
    rpcPort = 1339;

//Connect to the existent TestCafé server (if you running both client and server on the same machine
//hostname-parameter can be ommited).
var testCafeClient = new TestCafeRemote.Client(rpcPort, rpcHostname);

//Client can be used as a regular TestCafé instance with exception that listAvailableBrowsers() and listConnectedWorkers()
//are asynchronous methods.
testCafeClient.listAvailableBrowsers(function(browsers) {
    testCafeClient.runTests({ browsers: browsers }, function (errors, taskUid, workers) {
      //do smthg...
    });
});
