                                        "type": "page",
                                        "url": "",

                                                        "increment": 10,
                                                        "milli": 250,
                                                        "pause": 5,
                                                        "return": true
                                        "type": "view",
                                        "heigh": 200,
                                        "sub": {
                                                        "type": "page",
                                                        "url": "",
                                                        "type": "page",
                                                        "url": "",

Run it with:

divide config.json


  • Added return option on auto_scroll section, used to scroll in backwards when end of page is reached. Correct value is boolean (true or false).

  • Added pause option on auto_scroll section, used to make a pause when end (or start) of page is reached. Correct value is integer, corresponding to the number of “milli” value to wait (eg: milli is set to 2, pause is set to 1000, auto_scroll will wait 2*1000 millisecond).

  • Changed application title (from old name).

  • To note: Divide has been used for more than a one month at Smartjog without any problem, consequently, it developpement status is now “Stable”.

  • Initial release
