How many times have you struggled to get Puppeteer or PhantomJs to render your page properly? PhantomJsCloud manages all that complexity, giving you the right results the first time. No crashing from memory leaks, and no blank pages from missing Fonts or AJAX requests.
Because PhantomJsCloud is a Browser as an API you are provided with total control of the input and resources loaded.
Each request is billed at $0.15/Hour and $0.25/GB Output. This is around $0.000095/Page, or about $1.00 for every 10,500 pages. Subscribers get a volume discount, making it even cheaper. See Pricing for details.
Using a proxy allows you to control the IP Address that your browser requests use. While you can use a custom proxy, we also have a built in proxy to handle common needs. Docs for the builtin proxy solution can be found here.
Built-in Proxy Choices:
Our service adds about 200ms to the overhead of a normal browser request. As PhantomJsCloud is geographically distributed (East Asia, USA, and Western Europe), this means that you'll always get fast results no matter where you or your target page are located. If you have a high number of pages to render (millions), PhantomJsCloud will automatically spin-up backend workers when demand increases. Please see the API Docs "Testing and Performance Optimization" Section for more details.
We support many different output formats to meet your needs:
For Web Content Scraping.
JPEG / PNG
For visual inspection.
If you need to generate page previews, archive screenshots, or create thumbnails, this renders the page sends the result as JPEG or PNG.
For Archiving and Reports.
Create a PDF of the page or uploaded HTML, including all images, svg graphics, headers and footers.
HTML / RAW
Returns the target page in it's "native" form, including all response headers intact.
Useful for generating static versions of your Single-Page-App / AJAX Data, or for proxied requests. Very useful for SEO of Facebook / Twitter / Yahoo / Bing web bots.
For access to page Metadata and greatest flexibility
When outputting in JSON, you not only get your HTML, PDF, IMAGE, or RAW result, but are also sent full details about sub-resource load times, page response codes, and even the exact settings you used to make the request.
A special JSON output for advanced users, allowing unparalleled control over the browser:
If you have ever tried to use open-source headless browsers like Slimer.js or Phantom.js, You'll know that simple things like "Did the page finish loading?" are difficult problems to solve. PhantomJsCloud solves these problems for you so you can focus on other things.
With PhantomJsCloud, here's just a few of the things we take care of for you:
Most PhantomJS settings and rendering options are exposed through our REST API, and are configurable per page-request.
Export IFrame Content: Choose to Capture your page as JSON to get the
contents of every IFrame, regardless of cross-site security restrictions. Read the
PageRequest.renderSettings.renderIFrame docs for more details.
Blacklist or replace sub-resources of the page like
files or ad network scripts.
CORS and JSONP is supported, allowing you to use the PhantomJs Cloud service directly in your web application.
