PhantomJS and DEiXTo

Recently we experimented with PhantomJS, a headless WebKit browser which can serve a wide variety of purposes such as web browser automation, site scraping, website testing, SVG rendering and network monitoring. It’s a very interesting tool that could be used in combination with DEiXToBot. More specifically, it can enable DEiXToBot agents to access hard-to-reach web pages, such as those requiring interactivity to be reached and making heavy use of JavaScript and AJAX calls.
