CasperJS and PhantomJS Testing your code with unit tests is easy when you're working inside the code base and it's not too hard to jump outside if you're writing a command line tool. It's a bit different if you're creating a website -- it's just not so easy to simulate a user browsing and clicking. CasperJS offers a collection of helpful functions that make it simpler to browse through a website, fill out forms, click on links, and capture some screenshots as you're doing it. CasperJS does all of this with PhantomJS, a headless Webkit engine in the core so you know it's going to come close to emulating Chrome, Safari and an iPhone. Both are released with the MIT license.
