My puppeteer scripts now use deno.

No more need for npm in my personal stack! spawnSync + which returns the local browser’s path.

javascript
import puppeteer from "https://deno.land/x/puppeteer@16.2.0/mod.ts";

const chrome = "firefox";   /* Browser Chrome: "firefox" | "chromium" | "google-chrome" | ... */
const product = "firefox";  /* Product Base:   "firefox" | "chrome" */

const { status, stdout, stderr } = Deno.spawnSync("which", {
  args: [ chrome, ],
});

const executablePath = new TextDecoder().decode(stdout).trim();

const browser = await puppeteer.launch({
  headless: false,
  executablePath: executablePath,
  product: product,
});

const page = await browser.newPage();
await page.setViewport({ width: 1024, height: 768, });

const sites = [ "example.com", ];

for (const site of sites) {
  await page.goto("http://" + site);
  await page.screenshot({ path: site + ".png" });
}

await browser.close();
Basic Boilerplate: Captures a picture of example.com (main.ts)

Web servers can be spun up quickly on the command line but with gotchas.

Take the innocent web server .

shell
php -S 127.0.0.1:8080

Best not to use PHP’s web server cli (even for PHP) because routes with a dot (.) are assumed to be static files. Use a real web server or superior cli web servers with minor gotchas.

shell
python -m http.server --bind 127.0.0.1 8080
busybox httpd -f -p 127.0.0.1:8080
ruby -run -e httpd . -p 8080

One way to remove multi–page transition jank is to force a permanent scrollbar. Are there any kindred spirits? Yes — there’s a kindred spirit. Overflows may disable descending position: sticky behavior. Avoid that problem with other jank removal techniques.

css
html {
  overflow-y: scroll;
}

body {
  overflow-y: scroll;
}
