Overview of Puppeteer

Puppeteer is a Node.js library which provides a high-level API to control Chrome/Chromium over the DevTools Protocol. Puppeteer runs in headless mode on Chromium on Pipedream.

Using Puppeteer you can perform tasks including:

  • Capture Screenshots: Convert webpages into images.
  • Processing PDFs: parse and scan PDFs.
  • Web Scraping: Extract data from websites.
  • UI/UX Testing: Verify user interface and experience.
  • Integration with Test Frameworks: Combine with testing frameworks.
  • Task Automation: Automate web-related tasks like form filling.
  • Functional Testing: Automate user interactions to test web application functionality.
  • Regression Testing: Ensure new code changes don't introduce bugs.

    const browser = await puppeteer.browser();
    
    // Interact with the web page programmatically
    // See Puppeeter's Page documentation for available methods:

    const page = await browser.newPage();

    await page.goto('https://pipedream.com/');
    const title = await page.title();
    const content = await page.content();

    // The browser needs to be closed, otherwise the step will hang
    await browser.close();

    return { title, content }

Overview of Go

You can execute custom Go scripts on-demand or in response to various triggers and integrate with thousands of apps supported by Pipedream. Writing with Go on Pipedream enables backend operations like data processing, automation, or invoking other APIs, all within the Pipedream ecosystem. By leveraging Go's performance and efficiency, you can design powerful and fast workflows to streamline complex tasks.
