    rURL

    Like cURL but uses jsdom to download and execute the JavaScript. Useful for parsing webpages that use JavaScript for rendering to the DOM.

    Warning: This doesn't work that well; jsdom doesn't exhaustively cover all DOM api's.

    Warning: This command executes external code that could escape the jsdom sandbox.

    Getting Started

    npm install -g rurl

    Example

    Here's what you get when you curl a typical React application:

    ❯❯❯ curl http://www.chetcorcos.com/cube/
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
      <meta charset="UTF-8">
      <title>Cube</title>
    </head>
    <body>
      <div id="index"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="index.js"></script></body>
    </html>
    

    And here's what you get when you rurl:

    ❯❯❯ rurl http://www.chetcorcos.com/cube/
    <!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head>
      <meta charset="UTF-8">
      <title>Cube</title>
    <style type="text/css" data-glamor=""></style></head>
    <body>
      <div id="index"><div data-reactroot="" class="css-to2mjy"><div class="css-1q7e42a"><div class="css-1x02yr6" id="front" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"></div><div class="css-1x02yr6" id="back" style="background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"></div><div class="css-1x02yr6" id="left" style="background-color: rgb(252, 157, 157);"></div><div class="css-1x02yr6" id="right" style="background-color: rgb(239, 158, 252);"></div><div class="css-1x02yr6" id="bottom" style="background-color: rgb(248, 252, 158);"></div><div class="css-1x02yr6" id="top" style="background-color: rgb(182, 252, 158);"></div></div></div></div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="index.js"></script>
    
    </body></html>
    

    Notice how the JavaScript was executed and rendered into the div#index.
