Installation

Install

You can run Browsertime using our Docker container or using NodeJS.

Docker

We have Docker images with Browsertime, Chrome, Firefox and Xvfb. It is super easy to use (Xvfb is started automatically when you start the container). Here’s how to use the container with both Firefox & Chrome (install Docker first).

Mac & Linux

docker run --shm-size=1g --rm -v "$(pwd)":/browsertime sitespeedio/browsertime:3.12.0 --video --visualMetrics https://www.sitespeed.io/

Windows

C:\Users\Vicky> docker pull sitespeedio/browsertime
C:\Users\Vicky> docker run --rm -v "$(pwd)":/browsertime sitespeedio/browsertime:3.12.0 https://www.sitespeed.io -b firefox

That will output the data from the run in the current directory.

Standalone

Mac & Linux

Prerequisites: Install latest NodeJS LTS (Linux) and make sure you have npm or yarn installed. Install Chrome/Firefox.

npm

If you prefer npm, just run:

npm install browsertime -g

yarn

Or with yarn:

yarn global add browsertime

Windows

We support Windows using Docker. To be able to support running on Windows with NodeJS we need at least one core contributor that can focus on Windows. Are you that one? Please get in touch!
