  • How to Bypass Cloudflare in 2023: The 8 Best Methods

    Automated Browser Detection. Cloudflare queries the browser for properties that only exist in automated web browser environments. For example, the existence of the window.document.__selenium_unwrapped or window.callPhantom property indicates the usage of Selenium and PhantomJS, respectively. For obvious reasons, you're getting blocked if this is detected.
  • Malware/Virus protection?

    Regarding youtube-dl, I remember someone mentioning they needed an external helper program called phantomjs to download from some sites. I really wouldn't recommend using phantomjs as it hasn't been updated since 2018 and I see it has known vulnerabilities too.
  • Building A Serverless Screenshot Service with Lambda
    4 projects | | 23 May 2022
    For this project we will need some extra binaries ( PhantomJS in particular) to take the screenshots. We’ll also use ImageMagick, but that is provided by AWS by default in the Lambda image, so we don’t package it separately.

  • Migrating Selenium system tests to Cuprite
    10 projects | | 4 Oct 2021
    In our project, we’ve been running system tests (then called rather "Feature tests") since around 2016. System tests use a real browser in the background and test all layers of a Rails application at once: from the database all the way up to the nuances of JavaScript loaded together with the web pages. Back then, we wrote our system tests using Capybara with Poltergeist, a driver that ran a headless Phantom JS browser. Since this browser stopped being actively developed, we migrated our test suite to the Selenium / Webdriver wrapper around Chrome browser around ~2018. Chrome was itself fine for tests automation but the Selenium API was quite limited and we had to rewrite several Poltergeist features using 3rd party gems and tools.
