Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:

Url to download phantomjs
If phantomjs-url is not specified, this recipe downloads phantomjs from phantomjs-url-base. Defaults to Set this if you want to use your own mirror for phantomjs.

If phantomjs-url and phantomjs-url-template are not specified, you can set a template which will populate various variables. The variables should be wrapped in {}, and the following values are supported:

  • arch: the architecture. x86_64 or i686
  • phantom_platform: the platform, following the format dictated by the standard phantomjs url (e.g. linux, macosx)
  • phantom_extension: the extension, as specified by the format dictated by the standard phantomjs url (e.g. tar.bz2, zip)
  • platform: the platform, which is one of: linux, darwin, or windows
  • version: the version of phantomjs

The default template is:{version}-{phantom_platform}.{phantom_extension}

Example usage

We’ll start by creating a buildout that uses the recipe:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',

... [buildout]
... parts = casperjs
... [casperjs]
... recipe = gp.recipe.phantomjs
... """)

>>> system('buildout')

>>> ls('bin')
-  buildout
-  casperjs
-  phantomjs
