    About

    This package will take pdf snapshots of rendered web pages in bulk using Puppeteer (aka headless Chromium).

    Why?

    Using the chrome cli over many URLs is way CPU expensive and slow, because you must open a new browser per URL. This app opens and re-uses a single browser instance, thereby limiting to a single CPU AND with less CPU effort.

    Caveats

    1. Takes about 2 seconds per snapshot per screen
    2. Not quite pixel perfect.

    Requirements

    1. Requires Node v7.x or higher

    Installation

    npm install -g chrome-bulk-screenshot
    or
    yarn global add chrome-bulk-screenshot
    

    Note: Yarn isn't working right now for me because install hangs on a dependency (Puppeteer). If you have trouble with yarn, please try npm. Suggestions are also appreciated!

    Usage

    chrome-bulk-screenshot [options]
    
    Options
      --rainbow, -r  Include a rainbow
      --init, -i  Copy demo config to your current working directory
    
    Examples
      $ chrome-bulk-screenshot --init
      🌈 unicorns 🌈
      $ chrome-bulk-screenshot --config=config.yml
      ...
    

    Then check the 'out' folders.

    Roadmap

    1. Upload direct to cloud, like S3
    2. Easy sharing
    3. Get in the cloud -- web portal, cloud processing and scheduling
    4. Desktop app
    Queued
    1. None right now
    In-Process
    1. Upkeep, bugfixes and maintenance
