    README

    This package allows you to get an element selector from another site using the screenshot, which is not possible with a cross-domain iframe due to browser security restrictions.

    Usage

    Import package:

    import { makeScreenshot, getSelector } from 'crossdomain-selector';
    

    Make screenshot:

    const base64Screenshot = await makeScreenshot({ site: 'https://www.npmjs.com' });
    

    Then you can display this screenshot on the client and get click coordinates on an screenshot with something like this:

    recivedBase64Image = '<You should receive it from server>'
    <img src={`data:image/jpeg;base64,${recivedBase64Image}`} alt="Error" onClick={ e => {
      const coordinates = { 
          x: e.pageX - e.target.offsetLeft,
          y: e.pageY - e.target.offsetTop,
       };
      // Send on server coordinates
    }}/>
    

    Now you can get a selector on the received coordinates on the server:

    const selector = await getSelector({
      site: 'https://www.npmjs.com', // Site to get selector
      coordinates: [50, 120], // Received from the client
    });
    

    Docker

    If you use Docker you need to pass it in params:

    makeScreenshot({
      ... 
      docker: true,
    });
    
    getSelector({
      ...
      docker: true,
    });
    

    Important! You should read this to make proper dockerfile
