How to use with selenium-webdriver


require 'selenium/webdriver'
require 'browsermob/proxy'

server ="/path/to/downloads/browsermob-proxy/bin/browsermob-proxy") #=> #<BrowserMob::Proxy::Server:0x000001022c6ea8 ...>

proxy = server.create_proxy #=> #<BrowserMob::Proxy::Client:0x0000010224bdc0 ...>

profile = #=> #<Selenium::WebDriver::Firefox::Profile:0x000001022bf748 ...>
profile.proxy = proxy.selenium_proxy

driver = Selenium::WebDriver.for :firefox, :profile => profile

proxy.new_har "google"
driver.get ""

har = proxy.har #=> #<HAR::Archive:0x-27066c42d7e75fa6>
har.entries.first.request.url #=> ""
har.save_to "/tmp/google.har"


With event listener:

require 'selenium/webdriver'
require 'browsermob/proxy'
require 'browsermob/proxy/webdriver_listener'

# start server, set up proxy like above
proxy_listener =

driver = Selenium::WebDriver.for :firefox, :profile => profile, :listener => proxy_listener
# use driver

proxy_listener.hars #=> [#<HAR::Archive:0x-27066c42d7e75fa6>, #<HAR::Archive:0x-d7e75fa627066c42>]

Viewing HARs

The HAR gem includes a HAR viewer. After running the code above, you can view the saved HAR by running

$ har /tmp/google.har

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
