git clone https://github.com/raphaelcruzeiro/webimage.git

sudo aptitude install -y xvfb

sudo aptitude install -y libqtwebkit-dev

cd webimage

qmake webimage.pro

make all Makefile

xvfb-run --server-args="-screen 0, 1024x768x24" ./webimage http://news.ycombinator.com/ output.jpg 1024

Webimage will generate the file on the appropriate format for the output file name. Current supported formats are: jpg and pdf.

Note: xvfb is only necessary for running webimage on a headless server (i.e. a server without a GUI or even a graphics card)
