Getting Started with Headless Chrome image/svg+xml

Headless Chrome is shipping in Chrome 59. It’s a way to run the Chrome browser in a headless environment. Essentially, running Chrome without chrome! It brings all modern web platform features provided by Chromium and the Blink rendering engine to the command line.

Details how to print the DOM to stdout, take screenshots, and create PDF files with Headless Chrome. I’ve used PhantomJS (another headless browser) in the past and I remember it being a fun experience, so I’m looking forward to trying this.
