Just discovered a nice way to take screenshots of web sites from the command line! No browser needed. Cool.
The tool I’d like to advertise is called
aptitude install gnome-web-photo
For instance. To take generate an image of my website just call:
gnome-web-photo --timeout=60 http://binfalse.de binfalse.png
Just take a look at
binfalse.png to examine the result. I obtained a
1024x6334 image. I guess the main use case is to generate some kind of preview/thumbnail. To get a thumbnail simply add
gnome-web-photo --timeout=60 --mode=thumbnail http://binfalse.de binfalse-thumb.png
Afaik, there is no option to generate a larger thumb, but you could just pass
--width= without the
--mode=thumbnail. And then crop the pic yourself (e.g. using imagemagick). However, you need to run X and you need to have GTK, if I understand correctly. Nevertheless, I like that solution.
