n8n-nodes-browserless

This is an n8n community node. It lets you interact with browserless instance in your n8n workflows.

browserless is a web-service that allows for remote clients to connect, drive, and execute headless work; all inside of docker. It offers first-class integrations for puppeteer, playwright, selenium's webdriver, and a slew of handy REST APIs for doing more common work. On top of all that it takes care of other common issues such as missing system-fonts, missing external libraries, and performance improvements. We even handle edge-cases like downloading files, managing sessions, and have a fully-fledged documentation site.

If you've been struggling to get Chrome up and running docker, or scaling out your headless workloads, then browserless was built for you.

You've been tried to do browser related tasks with n8n for example web scraping, browser automation, e2e test. pdf generation and dont want't to care much about the browser infrastructure and interaction then n8n-node-borowserless will make your life much easier.

n8n is a fair-code licensed workflow automation platform.
