Launcher for PhantomJS.

This is a fork of karma-runner/karma-phantomjs-launcher to point to my fork of Medium/phantomjs. This is only to trick phantomjs to pulling down the v2.0.0 binaries from the cdn.


The easiest way is to keep karma-phantomjs-launcher as a devDependency in your package.json.

  "devDependencies": {
    "karma": "~0.10",
    "karma-phantomjs-launcher": "~0.1"

You can simple do it by:

npm install karma-phantomjs-launcher --save-dev


// karma.conf.js
module.exports = function(config) {
    browsers: ['PhantomJS', 'PhantomJS_custom'],

    // you can define custom flags
    customLaunchers: {
      'PhantomJS_custom': {
        base: 'PhantomJS',
        options: {
          windowName: 'my-window',
          settings: {
            webSecurityEnabled: false
        flags: ['--remote-debugger-port=9000']

You can pass list of browsers as a CLI argument too:

karma start --browsers PhantomJS_custom
