node-browserstack

A node.js JavaScript client for working with BrowserStack through its REST API (aka Javascript Testing API), Automate API, App Automate API, and Screenshots API.

Installation

npm install browserstack

Usage

var BrowserStack = require("browserstack");
var browserStackCredentials = {
	username: "foo",
	password: "p455w0rd!!1"
};

// REST API
var client = BrowserStack.createClient(browserStackCredentials);

client.getBrowsers(function(error, browsers) {
	console.log("The following browsers are available for testing");
	console.log(browsers);
});

// Automate API
var automateClient = BrowserStack.createAutomateClient(browserStackCredentials);

automateClient.getBrowsers(function(error, browsers) {
	console.log("The following browsers are available for automated testing");
	console.log(browsers);
});

// App Automate API
// Show the upload builds for mobile app automation
var appAutomateClient = BrowserStack.createAppAutomateClient(browserStackCredentials);

appAutomateClient.getBuilds(function(error, builds) {
	console.log("The following builds are available for app automated testing");
	console.log(builds);
});

// Screenshots API
var screenshotClient = BrowserStack.createScreenshotClient(browserStackCredentials);

screenshotClient.getBrowsers(function(error, browsers) {
	console.log("The following browsers are available for screenshots");
	console.log(browsers);
});

API

Objects

browser objects

A common pattern in the APIs is a "browser object" which is just a plain object with the following properties:

  • os: The operating system.
  • os_version: The operating system version.
  • browser: The browser name.
  • browser_version: The browser version.
  • device: The device name.

A browser object may only have one of browser or device set; which property is set will depend on os.

worker objects

Worker objects are extended browser objects which contain the following additional properties:

  • id: The worker id.
  • status: A string representing the current status of the worker.
    • Possible statuses: "running", "queue".

project objects

Project objects are plain objects which contain the following properties:

  • id: The id of the project.
  • name: The name of the project.
  • created_at: When the project was created.
  • updated_at: When the project was most recently updated.
  • user_id
  • group_id

build objects

Build objects are plain objects which contain the following properties:

  • hashed_id: The hashed if of the build.
  • name: The name of the build.
  • status: The status of the build.
  • duration

extended build objects

Extended build objects are build objects with the following additional properties:

  • id: The id of the build.
  • automation_project_id: The id of the project this build belongs to.
  • updated_at: When the build was created.
