API feedback #1
this is a new module i'm working on that wraps electron in an API suitable for scraping, automation etc.
I'm interested in getting early feedback on the JS API + semantics I have so far:
I looked at phantom.js and casper.js for some inspiration, but I'd be open to other suggestions on APIs that get this kind of thing 'right'
edit: currently you have to
@AutomatedTester Browsing the docs for WebDriver it looks like if we wanted to implement that API it would take quite a bit of work, since all the calls would have to be done with RPC and we would likely have to make major contributions to Electron to let us implement the WebDriver APIs. There are some cool ideas in there though, thanks for sharing.
@maxogden You wouldn't have to do any implementations since there are already a number that do that.
While I am all for people scratching their own itch I do wonder if colloborating with the other projects would help you reach your end goal quicker.
