node-xvfb

node-xvfb makes it easy to start and use Xvfb in node.

API

startXvfb()

startXvfb is inspired by xvfb-run - it searches for a free X display number and starts Xvfb on that.

var xvfb = require('xvfb');

xvfb.startXvfb(function(err, childProcess, servernum) {
  // childProcess is a ChildProcess, as returned from child_process.spawn()
  console.log('Xvfb running on server number', servernum);
  console.log('Xvfb pid', childProcess.pid);
  console.log('err should be null', err);
});

.startXvfb also support an optional number to start searching from.

var xvfb = require('xvfb');

xvfb.startXvfb(200, function(err, childProcess, servernum) {
  // servernum will be at least 200
  console.log('Xvfb running on server number', servernum);
  console.log('Xvfb pid', childProcess.pid);
});

install

With npm, do:

npm install xvfb
