A simple tool to visdiff two web pages.

Project description


Make a quick visualdiff between two pages.


Currently Quickshot only uses the Geckodriver webdriver. Downloading and installing Firefox should be sufficient to get you set up. Ensure Firefox is in your path after installing.

You should also have ImageMagick installed. Test if you already have ImageMagick installed by running, convert -version in your terminal.

Installing ImageMagick


Via Pip

  • Run pip install quickshot

From source

  • Set up a virtuanenv in some fashion, vex --python /usr/local/bin/python3 -m quickshot
  • Install dependencies pip3 install -r requirements.txt

ini files

You can add credentials to sign in to a web form in a file called 'quickshot.ini'.

Since the .ini is included in the .gitignore file, (To help prevent you from committing your credentials to the cloud), you'll first need to create it.

Each block can contain an email and password items.

Quickshot will attempt to use webdriver.find_element_by_name() to locate elements on the page that correspond to these values.

An example configuration block might look like;

email =
password = foobar


Quickshot takes two required arguments being the urls of the two pages you want to compare. python "" ""

There are also two optional arguments;

  • -w, --wait, length in seconds to wait after loading a page before taking a screenshot.
  • -i, --ini, named section to load from quickshot.ini configuration file.
