Tools to Capture and Convert the Web

Take a screenshot of a mobile website with Node.js

Node.js API

The GrabzIt Node.js API provides the ability to take screenshots of mobile versions of websites, however not all websites have special mobile versions and so it may not work in all circumstances. Mobile screenshot can be requested for both image and PDF screenshots as well as when extracting tables.

To do this you need to use pass 1 to the requestAs property on the options object when creating a image, PDF or table, as shown below. This will then request the mobile version of the target website.

To get a more authenticate mobile screenshot it is also a good idea to pass a standard mobile browser width to the browserWidth property as shown below. Or if you are creating a PDF choose a smaller page size.

var grabzit = require('grabzit');

var client = new grabzit("Sign in to view your Application Key", "Sign in to view your Application Secret");
var options = {"format":"png", "requestAs":1, "browserWidth":320};

client.url_to_image("", options);"", function (error, id){
    if (error != null){
        throw error;
