How does it work?
Autochrome is simply a script that fetches the latest version of Google’s Chromium, creates a number of test profiles, and installs it. Rather than do extensive modifications to the Chromium source, we rely on the base executable built by Google and only modified the profiles so that they work for our testing.
How do I get this?
Get it from NCC Group’s GitHub! Autochrome is a Ruby script that will run on OS X 10.10 and later as well as most modern Linux systems. On Linux, you will need to have Ruby, sqlite3, and unzip installed for it to function. The following steps are all you need to get started:
$ git clone https://github.com/nccgroup/autochrome.git $ cd autochrome $ ruby autochrome.rb
