grunt-phantom

Start PhantomJS web driver.

Build Status Dependency Status Bitdeli Badge

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-phantom --save-dev

The plugin assumes you have PhantomJS installed globally. If you do not wish to have it installed globally, you can install it as an optional dependency:

# From your project's root directory
cd node_modules/grunt-phantom/
npm install --optional

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-phantom');

The "phantom" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named phantom to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  phantom: {
    options: {
      port: 4444
    },
    your_target: {
    },
    another_target: {
      options: {
        port: 5555
      }
    }
  }
})

Options

port

Type: Number Default value: 4444

The web driver port in PhantomJS. Effectively:

phantomjs --webdriver=4444

Usage Examples

Default Options

In case you want to use the default 4444 port, you can omit the port option. Otherwise, if you want to use a different web driver port, set it like this:

grunt.initConfig({
  phantom: {
    options: {
      port: 5555
    },
    cucumber: {
    }
  }
})

Multiple PhantomJS instances

If you need to run multiple web drivers, you can have multiple targets:

grunt.initConfig({
  phantom: {
    options: {
      port: 5555
    },
    cucumber: {
    },
    mocha: {
      options: {
        port: 6666
      }
    }
  },
})

Here, if you run grunt phantom, two web drivers will be launched, cucumber on port 5555 and mocha on port 6666.

PhantomJS Output

If you want to see the output of PhantomJS, pass --debug option to your grunt command:

  grunt phantom --debug
