Description: Web validator interface for the pasties project.
The main purpose is to find possible errors or regressions in display ads. Its intended to grow over time to a set of rules based on best practices for performance ( although displayads not necessarily can avoid document.write atm ).
Hooks / Harvesters (runs inside phantomJS context):
- har,logs,errors (default)
- pasties (based on advertsspec)
Validators / Rules (runs in node.js context):
- errors (default)
How does the validator work?
It uses phantomJS as a browser, loads in a shim on top of the phanomjs api, runs for a 10 seconds after all hooks/harvesters has been injected. After phantomjs run, the validators/rules runs in a series to generate a report(info, warn, debug, error).
