I think it would be good to provide a link to the following if no further maintenance is planned. Chrome Headless has been out for all major platforms for some time now and is already seeing major adaption, as predicted by the original maintainer.

It was an amazing time! You can be sure that Google DevTools can handle and develop puppeteer further with regular updates which we, unfortunately, unable to deliver. Thank you!

With this message, no more commits will be pushed here. The development has been stopped for good and all.

PhantomJS has been crucial in projects I have been involved in over the years. We still have it in production for some systems and it is likely to be spinning there for quite some time..

Thank you @Vitallium and all the contributors for your work, it has made a difference for thousands of devs.

@Vitallium @ariya

Thank you very much for all the work you have done in recent years. You have contributed to the evolution of the use of web browsers in a considerable way (in terms of application tests, scrapping, supervision ...)

I have only one regret is that version 2.5 which led to the management of "promises" will never come out in stable version.

My adminstration will continue to use PhantomJS version 2.1.1 for a long time with all possible javascript patches (without having ever contributed to the project).

Thank you and congratulations.

For things like promises, we use this ES6 shim:

https://github.com/paulmillr/es6-shim

We use Phantom for headless unit testing of Jasmine tests, so we have control of what assets can be added to the page.

@Vitallium Since this issue is still open and there is no notice on either github or phantomjs.org, is the abandonment uncertain?

@bughit I stopped working on PhantomJS two months ago.

@Vitallium I understand that your stepping down is certain, it was unclear if there was some significance to this being open and the absence of notice.

@bughit We decided to not do that. Anyone can catch up and continue developing the project ;-)

We used PhantomJS for several years. Was instrumental in getting us where we are today. RIP

I see there are quite a few new commits by @pixiuPL recently. Does that mean PhantomJS is living again? ;)

Adding on to @yan12125's comment, did you guys see that PhantomJS homepage now shows v2.1.3 latest release instead of v2.1.1 ?! - @pixiuPL's commits are still coming in 😱
