Summary of my bookmarked Github repositories from Apr 12th, 2015
Nightmare is a high-level browser automation library used for UI testing and crawling. It provides simple methods to mimic user actions like navigation, typing, and clicking. The library is built on Electron, offering faster performance compared to PhantomJS. Nightmare is commonly used for automating tasks on websites without APIs and is also useful for UI testing and crawling. It comes with additional tools like Niffy, a perceptual diffing tool, and Daydream, a Chrome extension for generating Nightmare scripts while browsing.
