Simplechrome

An fork of pypuppeteer used by Webrecorder for automation that has been modified to meet our needs.

Notable Additions to the API / code base per our own use-case:

  • Changes to allow control of latests revisions of both Chrome and Chromium
  • Changes to facilitate using the uvloop event loop
  • Changes to input handling for evaluateOnNewDocument
  • Tracking child frame life cyles individually
  • Less strict application defaults
  • Keeps to date with puppeteer

Installation

Simplechrome requires python 3.6+.

Install latest version from github:

pip install -U git+https://github.com/webrecorder/[email protected]

Usage

Note: When you run simplechrome first time (if you do not supply an executablePath), it will download a recent version of Chromium (~100MB).

Example: Go to a web page and take a screenshot.

import asyncio
import uvloop
from simplechrome import launch

asyncio.set_event_loop_policy(uvloop.EventLoopPolicy())


async def main():
    browser = await launch()
    page = await browser.newPage()
    await page.goto('http://example.com')
    await page.screenshot({'path': 'example.png'})
    await browser.close()

if __name__ == '__main__':
    asyncio.get_event_loop().run_until_complete(main())
