A client which calls remote web browser debugger methods

Project description

browser-debugger-tools Build Status


The purpose is to provide a python client to connect to the debugger tools of a web-browser.

Currently supports connecting to Google-Chrome/Chromium over the devtools protocol, via a wrapped websockets client. Feel free to extend and add support for other browsers as required.

Example Usage

Start Google-Chrome, passing a remote debugger port argument, for example on Ubuntu:

$ google-chrome-stable --remote-debugging-port=9899

In a python console, you can connect to the remote debugging port and enable the Page domain.

>> self.devtools_client = ChromeInterface(9899, domains=["Page"])

The client provides some devtools interface methods, for example:

>> with self.devtools_client.set_timeout(10):
   ... self.devtools_client.take_screenshot("/tmp/screenshot.png")

Or more generally you can call remote methods according to the devtools protocol spec (, for example

>> self.devtools_client.execute(domain="Emulation", method="enable")
>> self.devtools_client.execute("Emulation", "setGeolocationOverride", args={"latitude": 20, "longitude": 35})
