## Installation

To install pychrome, simply:

```
$ pip install -U pychrome
```

or from GitHub:

```
$ pip install -U git+https://github.com/fate0/pychrome.git
```

## Setup Chrome

simply:

```
$ google-chrome --remote-debugging-port=9222
```

or headless mode (chrome version >= 59):

```
$ google-chrome --headless --disable-gpu --remote-debugging-port=9222
```

or use docker:

```
$ docker pull fate0/headless-chrome
$ docker run -it --rm --cap-add=SYS_ADMIN -p9222:9222 fate0/headless-chrome
```

## Getting Started

``` python
import pychrome

# create a browser instance
browser = pychrome.Browser(url="http://127.0.0.1:9222")

# create a tab
tab = browser.new_tab()

# register callback if you want
def request_will_be_sent(**kwargs):
print("loading: %s" % kwargs.get('request').get('url'))

tab.Network.requestWillBeSent = request_will_be_sent

# start the tab
tab.start()

# call method
tab.Network.enable()
# call method with timeout
tab.Page.navigate(url="https://github.com/fate0/pychrome", _timeout=5)

# wait for loading
tab.wait(5)

# stop the tab (stop handle events and stop recv message from chrome)
tab.stop()

# close tab
browser.close_tab(tab)

```

or (alternate syntax)

``` python
import pychrome

browser = pychrome.Browser(url="http://127.0.0.1:9222")
tab = browser.new_tab()

def request_will_be_sent(**kwargs):
print("loading: %s" % kwargs.get('request').get('url'))


tab.set_listener("Network.requestWillBeSent", request_will_be_sent)

tab.start()
tab.call_method("Network.enable")
tab.call_method("Page.navigate", url="https://github.com/fate0/pychrome", _timeout=5)

tab.wait(5)
tab.stop()

browser.close_tab(tab)
```
