Node.js API to control Firefox.

logo

At this point Foxr is more a proof of concept, work is pretty much in progress.

Example

Run a locally installed Firefox:

/path/to/firefox -headless -marionette -safe-mode

Or a dockerized version:

docker run -it --rm --shm-size 2g -p 2828:2828 deepsweet/firefox-headless-remote:68
import foxr from 'foxr'
// const foxr = require('foxr').default

(async () => {
  try {
    const browser = await foxr.connect()
    const page = await browser.newPage()

    await page.goto('https://example.com')
    await page.screenshot({ path: 'example.png' })
    await browser.close()
  } catch (error) {
    console.error(error)
  }
})()

Install

yarn add --dev foxr
# or
npm install --save-dev foxr

API

Foxr

connect

Connect to the Marionette endpoint.

type TConnectOptions = {
  host?: string,
  port?: number,
  defaultViewport?: {
    width?: number,
    height?: number
  }
}

foxr.connect(options?: TConnectOptions): Promise<Browser>
  • host – 'localhost' by default
  • port – 2828 by default
  • defaultViewport
    • width – 800 by default
    • height – 600 by default

launch

type TLaunchOptions = {
  args?: string[],
  dumpio?: boolean,
  executablePath: string,
  headless?: boolean
} & TConnectOptions

foxr.launch(options?: TLaunchOptions): Promise<Browser>
  • args – array of additional args, ['-marionette', '-safe-mode', '-no-remote'] by default
  • dumpio – print browser process stdout and stderr, false by default
  • executablePath – path to Firefox executable, required
  • headless – whether to run browser in headless mode, true by default
