PhantomJS support depreciated in Selenium- Remove support? #14
PhantomJS does not function correctly in the bundled version, or current version of Selenium in a Linux environment. It is still working on windows, but I suggest removing support for it entirely to keep version conflicts between OS at a minimum. A timeout occurs when called, as well as a warning.
By default myusps.get_session is passing ('driver='phantomjs') unless otherwise specified by invocation. I believe we should remove support for PhantomJS entirley but defaulting to Chrome, and removing the check in
PhantomJS is a web driver that Selenium can use. In the current setup, Selenium is used for authentication and cookie creation regardless of web driver (Chrome or PhantomJS). It appears with the current build of Selenium PhantomJS support is not working at all, plus we have an official note from the deverloper of PhantomJS that he is stepping down -- https://groups.google.com/forum/m/#!topic/phantomjs/9aI5d-LDuNE
There's also a note when you run Selenium about the same thing.
There's no reason we shouldn't be able to use headless chrome on any Rasberry pi running Rasbian. There's a quick start here on how to use it - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=194176
