Capture website screenshots


Capture website screenshots using pageres

Issues should be opened on the pageres issue tracker.

Using another task runner?

$ npm install --save-dev grunt-pageres

PhantomJS, which is used for generating the screenshots, is installed automagically, but in some rare cases it might fail to and you'll get an Error: spawn EACCES error. Download PhantomJS manually and reinstall this task if that happens.

require('load-grunt-tasks')(grunt); // npm install --save-dev load-grunt-tasks 
    pageres: {
        screenshot: {
            options: {
                urls: '',
                sizes: ['1200x800', '800x600'],
                dest: 'dist'
        multipleUrls: {
            options: {
                urls: ['', ''],
                sizes: ['800x1000', '400x1000'],
                dest: 'dist',
                crop: true
grunt.registerTask('default', ['pageres']);
