npm i puppeteer-pro


A simple puppeteer wrapper to enable useful plugins with ease


Requires node v10 and higher

npm install puppeteer-pro


Puppeteer-Pro can do all the same things as puppeteer, just now with plugins!

// Puppeteer-Pro is a drop-in replacement for puppeteer
const PuppeteerPro = require('puppeteer-pro');

// Enable the 'avoidDetection' plugin to prevent headless detection

// Enable the 'solveRecaptchas' plugin to solve Google's recaptchas (remember to provide a wit.api API access token)
const solver = PuppeteerPro.solveRecaptchas('WIT_AI_ACCESS_TOKEN');

(async () => {
  const browser = await PuppeteerPro.launch();
  const page = await browser.newPage();
  console.log('Testing the 🐱‍👤 avoidDetection 🐱‍👤 plugin..')
  await page.goto('https://arh.antoinevastel.com/bots/areyouheadless');
  await page.screenshot({ path: 'are-you-headless.png' });
  console.log('Testing the recaptcha solver..')
  await page.goto('https://recaptcha-demo.appspot.com/recaptcha-v2-checkbox.php');
  await solver.waitForCaptcha(page); // Captcha script is deferred, so will load after page.goto completes
  await solver.solveRecaptcha(page);
  await page.screenshot({ path: 'is-recaptcha-solved.png' });

  await browser.close();

Passive Improvements

  • There can be multiple request interception handlers for the same request. In such cases, the resulting response will prioritize respond, followed by abort, followed by continue. For example:
    • If amongst 5 handlers, respond is called 1 time, abort is called 2 times and continue is called 2 times, the result will be respond. This will occur after the first respond is called and not when all handlers are finished.
    • If amongst 5 handlers, abort is called 1 time and continue is called 4 times, the result will be abort. This will occur after all handlers are finished.
    • If amongst 5 handlers, all handlers call continue, the result will be continue. This will occur after all handlers are finished.
