    n8n node for requesting webpages using Puppeteer, a Node library which provides a high-level API to control Chrome or Chromium over the DevTools Protocol.

    How to install

    Community Nodes (Recommended)

    For users on n8n v0.187+, your instance owner can install this node from Community Nodes.

    1. Go to Settings > Community Nodes.
    2. Select Install.
    3. Enter n8n-nodes-puppeteer in Enter npm package name.
    4. Agree to the risks of using community nodes: select I understand the risks of installing unverified code from a public source.
    5. Select Install.

    After installing the node, you can use it like any other node. n8n displays the node in search results in the Nodes panel.

    Manual installation

    To get started install the package in your n8n root directory:

    npm install n8n-nodes-puppeteer

    For Docker-based deployments, you'll need to make sure puppeteer is installed first. Then, add the following line before the font installation command in your n8n Dockerfile:

    RUN cd /usr/local/lib/node_modules/n8n && npm install n8n-nodes-puppeteer

    Check out this gist or Marcus' example repo for a working example.

    Note: If you've having issues running puppeteer, please check their Troubleshooting guide before opening an issue here.

        • Launch Arguments: Allows you to specify additional command line arguments passed to the browser instance.

        • Proxy Server: Allows Puppeteer to use a custom proxy configuration. You can specify a custom proxy configuration in three ways: By providing a semi-colon-separated mapping of list scheme to url/port pairs. For example, you can specify:

            http=foopy:80;ftp=foopy2
          

          to use HTTP proxy "foopy:80" for http URLs and HTTP proxy "foopy2:80" for ftp URLs.

          By providing a single uri with optional port to use for all URLs. For example:

            foopy:8080
          

          will use the proxy at foopy:8080 for all traffic.

          By using the special "direct://" value.

            direct://" will cause all connections to not use a proxy.
