Pyppeteer (Python) - UNMAINTAINED

NOTE: We suggest not using this library anymore as it is now unmaintained, please consider playwright-python as an alternative.

You can use your existing python infrastructure today with browserless by using Pyppeteer, an unofficial python port of puppeteer.

Below is a small example of getting started:

import asyncio
import pyppeteer

async def main():
  browser = await pyppeteer.launcher.connect(
    browserWSEndpoint='wss://chrome.browserless.io?token='+YOUR-API-KEY
    )
  page = await browser.newPage()
  url = "https://www.example.com"
  await page.goto(url)
  values = await page.evaluate('''() => document.querySelector('h1').innerHTML
    ''')
  print(values)
  await browser.close()

asyncio.get_event_loop().run_until_complete(main())

This will simply navigate to the example website and return the title, however it'll give you a great starting place for using Pyppeteer alongside browserless.

Be sure to let us know if you have questions or issues.
