    Yeah I've seen it before but I'm not too fond of having to implement the necessary functionality in JS for Phantom.

    The initial (and ideal) goal is to write a Ruby DOM API (based on Nokigiri and/or Taka) and use TheRubyRacer to provide the JS runtime.

    Now, if I fail, which is a very real possibility since this would be a massive undertaking, then we can start looking at other ways to go about it.

    I like things neat and tidy. :)

    Found this:, there is support for Ruby via Selenium WebDriver.

    I'm not very happy with having to start a PhantomJS server in the background but it's at least worth a try considering that Arachni will get all the necessary functionality instantly -- and without me having to do a huge amount of work.
