Update on our Screenshot API

After a few client requests, we have decided to make this screenshot API update. This was done on top of the new Screenshot API that was announced back in January. I wish I could go into the details of the sensitive nature of our client’s project, but I can’t. So again, it might be weird why someone has decided to ask for this feature.

But hopefully, you will also find use in it. We’ve created 3 new features with this update, and now you can see website screenshot example on our website. So here are the 3 new features.

This is me announcing the features while visiting the south of Spain.

3 new features in our Screenshot API update

  1. Asap
    1. Asap (as in – as soon as possible) doesn’t wait for the website to load completely. Why? Default, we wait for the website to load completely before taking the screenshot. Since some websites are ridiculously slow, it is sometimes useful to just take the screenshot without waiting. This screenshot API feature takes the screenshot as soon as the HTML loads.
  2. Delay
    1. Delay gives you the option to delay taking the website screenshot. Just add 1000-5000 milliseconds, and the screenshot will fire of exactly when you set it. The default is 0 delay.
  3. Node_Geo
    1. Currently, we have 5 different countries you can choose from. This will make the website screenshot from this particular country. This can come in handy since some websites load differently in different parts of the world. Node_Geo helps you automate the process

Any ideas?

These 3 new features are the last we implemented. If you have any ideas, please let us know! We would love to work with you on your next project.
