    The Mechanize module is used for automating interaction with websites. Mechanize automatically stores and sends cookies, follows redirects, can follow links, and submit forms. Form fields can be populated and submitted. Mechanize also keeps track of the sites that you have visited as a history.

    Getting Started

    From the root folder, you can run the get_page example:

    node examples/get_page.js

    To load from a specific URL:

    node examples/get_page.js "http://www.cnn.com"

    The example gets the page and then performs a console.log() on all of the returned object data.

    Posting a form

    For form posting, you can run the submit_form example:

    node examples/submit_form.js "http://localhost/"

    The example POSTs a username and password to the /login path at the specificied URL.

    Chaining page accesses

    For an example of chaining requests, you can run the submit_form_chain example:

    node examples/submit_form_chain.js

    Installation

    From the mechanize directory, run npm install:

    npm install
