Chrome (@hint/connector-chrome)

A connector to use Google Chrome via the chrome debugging protocol in webhint.

Installation

First, you need to install webhint:

npm install hint

Then, install the new connector:

npm install @hint/connector-chrome

Usage

Configure the connector name in your .hintrc configuration file:

{
    "connector": {
        "name": "chrome"
    },
    ...
}

Options

The set of settings supported by Chrome connector are:

  • ignoreHTTPSError (boolean): Indicates if errors with certificates should be ignored. Use this when checking self-signed certificates. It is false by default.
  • launcherOptions (object): Allows you to pass in additional Chrome command line API flags. This connector uses Chrome Launcher to start Chrome and launcherOptions will be relied to it so the same options are supported.
  • waitFor (number): time in milliseconds the connector will wait after the site is ready before starting the DOM traversing and stop listening to any network request. By default, it will wait until the network is somehow “quiet” even though more requests could be processed after DOM traversing. Default is 5000.
