Install via npm or GitHub

npm install screenshotscloud

Or if you prefer yarn

yarn add screenshotscloud

Once installed you can generate website screenshot urls as follows:

const ScreenshotsCloud = require('screenshotscloud');

const SCREENSHOTSCLOUD_KEY = 'my-key-generated-at-screenshots-dot-cloud';
const SCREENSHOTSCLOUD_SECRET = 'mysecretstringgeneratedatscreenshotsdotcloud';

const screenshotscloud = ScreenshotsCloud(SCREENSHOTSCLOUD_KEY, SCREENSHOTSCLOUD_SECRET);

const screenshotUrl = screenshotscloud.screenshotUrl({
	"url": "", 
	"width": 800

If you wish to download the image the simplest method would be to use a http client such as request or the built in http library. Example below:

// make sure to npm install request or yarn add request to your project first
const request = require('request');

// ...previous code from above example
request.get(screenshotUrl, {encoding: 'binary'}, function(error, response, imageBody) {
	let screenshotResult = imageBody;

	// if you want to save it to disk
	require('fs').writeFileSync('screenshot.png', screenshotResult, 'binary');
