Using Selenium and Python to screenshot a javascript-heavy page

As websites become more JavaScript heavy, it's harder to automate things like screenshotting for archival purposes. I've seen examples and suggestions to use PhantomJS for visual testing/archiving of websites, but have run into issues such as the non-rendering of webfonts. I've never tried out Selenium until today...and while I'm not thinking about performance implications yet, Selenium seems far more accurate than PhantomJS...which makes sense since it actually opens a real browser. And it's not too hard to script to do complex interactions: here's an [example of how to log in to Twitter, write a tweet, upload an image, and send a tweet via Selenium and DOM element selection](https://gist.github.com/dannguyen/8a6fa49253c1d6a0eb92

Tinder API documentation

http://rsty.org/

I've sniffed most of the Tinder API to see how it works. You can use this to create bots (etc) very trivially. Some example python bot code is here -> https://gist.github.com/rtt/5a2e0cfa638c938cca59 (horribly quick and dirty, you've been warned!)

Note: this was written in April/May 2014 and the API may have changed since. I have nothing to do with Tinder, nor their API, and I do not offer any support for anything you may build on top of this

Most active GitHub users (git.io/top)

The count of contributions (summary of Pull Requests, opened issues and commits) to public repos at GitHub.com from Tue, 06 Dec 2016 17:06:46 GMT till Wed, 06 Dec 2017 17:06:46 GMT.

Only first 1000 GitHub users according to the count of followers are taken. This is because of limitations of GitHub search. Sorting algo in pseudocode:

githubUsers
  .filter(user => user.followers > 1000)
