GrabzIt
Tools to Capture and Convert the Web

Take a screenshot of a mobile website with PHPPHP API

The GrabzIt PHP 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 screenshots, converting HTML as well as when extracting tables.

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

To get a more authenticate mobile screenshot it is also a good idea to pass a standard mobile browser width to the setBrowserWidth method of the GrabzItImageOptions class. Or if you are creating a PDF choose a smaller page size.

$options = new GrabzItImageOptions();
$options->setFormat("png");
$options->setBrowserWidth("320");
$options->setWidth("256");
$options->setHeight("256");
$options->setRequestAs(1);

$grabzIt = new GrabzItClient("APPLICATION KEY", "APPLICATION SECRET");
$grabzIt->URLToImage("http://www.google.com", $options);
$grabzIt->Save("http://www.mysite.com/handler.php");
