Headless Testing Against Real Web Browsers with Xvfb - Mike Ball @clapexcitement (

How can headless, automated tests be run in continuous integration against technologies that require a real GUI web browser? Phantomjs is great, but doesn't support technologies like Google Polymer web-component-tester, NW.js, and Flash. X Virtual Frame Buffer provides an excellent solution towards lightweight, headless testing against real web browsers. In this talk, I'll offer some background on X Virtual Frame Buffer, and demo how to test a Google Polymer web component on a lightweight Ubuntu VM in continuous integration.
