With Mobile Web Browser Emulator, it is easy test mobile web applications using the Selenium WebDriver API.

var MobileBrowser = require('mobile-web-browser-emulator').MobileBrowser;
var mobileBrowser = new MobileBrowser();
 
mobileBrowser.emulate(
  // Parameters such as dimensions for tablets, smartphones or desktops.
  {
    url: 'https://www.google.com/', // URL to load. **required**
    width: 300, // Width of the device. **optional** (300 by default)
    height: 700 // Height of the device. **optional** (300 by default)
  },
    // The second parameter is a callback that takes a browser instance as an argument
    function(browser) { /* ... */ }
);

Methods on the browser object:

browser.do(function(driver) {
  // The driver object can then be used with Selenium WebDriver
});
browser.takeScreenshot('example.png');

var MobileBrowser = require('../lib/index.js').MobileBrowser;
var mobileBrowser = new MobileBrowser();
 
mobileBrowser.emulate({
  url: 'https://www.google.com',
  width: 300,
  height: 700
}, function(browser) {
  browser.do(function(driver) {
    driver.getTitle().then(function(title) { // Selenium Webdriver Method
      console.log(title);
    });
  });
});

var MobileBrowser = require('../lib/index.js').MobileBrowser;
var mobileBrowser = new MobileBrowser();
