Quick example

Start server

$ wdm start // open selenium webdriver server

You could run xx.config.js file.

// build_prod.config.js
'use strict'

module.exports = {
  seleniumHost: 'http://localhost:4444/wd/hub',
  browsers: ['firefox'/*, 'chrome', 'safari', 'opera'*/],
  envHosts: {
    build: 'http://localhost:4000',
    prod: 'http://www.ishouldbeageek.me'
  },
  paths: [
    '/404.html',
    '/',
    '/page2',
    '/page3',
    '/page4',
    '/page5',
    '/strict-mode',
    ['/', function clickLink(browser) {
      // need to return a promise
      return browser.elementByPartialLinkText('viff').click();
    }],
    ['/', '#main-content'/*, function (browser) { } */],
    { 'this is a testcase description' : ['/', '#main-content', function(browser) {
      return browser.maximize();
    }]}
  ],
  reportFormat: 'file'
};

Then, you could run

viff ./build_prod.config.js

Programmable

Use viff in your own project.

var Viff = require('viff');
var viff = new Viff('http://localhost:4444/wd/hub');

viff.takeScreenshot('firefox', 'http://localhost:3000', '/path1', function (bufferImg) {
  /* buffer of images */  
});

// partial of web pages
viff.takeScreenshot('firefox', 'http://localhost:3000', ['path1', '#css-selecor'], function (bufferPartialImg) {});

// responsive of web pages
function size(width) {
  return function (driver) {
    driver.setWindowSize(width, 600 /* any height*/);
  };
}

viff.takeScreenshot('firefox', 'http://localhost:3000', ['path', size(1024)], function (bufferImg) {});

// Q promise
viff.takeScreenshot('firefox', 'http://localhost:3000', ['path', size(1024)])
  .done(function (bufferImg) {
    /* generate image here */
  })
  .catch(function (err) {
    /* handle err here */
  })

// using browserstack
viff = new Viff('http://hub.browserstack.com/wd/hub');
viff.takeScreenshot({
  'browserName' : 'iPhone',
  'platform' : 'MAC',
  'device' : 'iPhone 5',
  'browserstack.user': /* your name */,
  'browserstack.key': /* your key */
}, 'http://www.google.com', 'path1', function (bufferImg) {});
