Ariya Hidayat: "PhantomJS for Web Page Automation"


6:30: Dinner and networking

7:00: Announcements

7:10: Speaker + Q&A

9:00: Lights out!


PhantomJS, the scriptable headless WebKit-based automation tool, has gained a lot of traction in its first 3 years. It is a popular choice for continuous integration, whether to run basic tests or to catch rendering regressions. Many JavaScript test frameworks work well with PhantomJS and even Selenium-based tests can be integrated thanks to the support for WebDriver via Ghost Driver. In addition, because PhantomJS permits the inspection of network traffic, it is suitable to run various analysis on the network behavior and performance. This talk will highlight the basic usages of PhantomJS and explore various PhantomJS-tools for the purpose of headless testing of web applications, screen capture, and network monitoring.


Ariya Hidayat is an engineer/technical lead/FOSS fan/blogger/speaker. These days, his activities are mostly on software craftsmanship around HTML5, JavaScript, and other web technologies. Follow him via his blog or Twitter (@ariyahidayat).

    I enjoyed the PhatomJS presentation. Thank you, Ariya and Linkedin. I did not have a chance to make an announcement. My team at Skyfire is hiring a Java automation engineer. We are automating tests for an Android app using Robotium. Robotium programming is very similar to Selenium. If you are a strong Java programmer and want to get into the Android automation field, please feel free to send me a resume at [masked]

      I changed the video resolution default from High to lowest possible and almost fixed it.
