Easier website testing with Lighthouse Keeper

A wrapper for Google’s testing tool

Google’s Lighthouse is an extremely useful tool to test web sites and apps on performance, accessibility and best practices. At sum.cumo we use Lighthouse both individually and as part of our tooling – assisted by a little wrapper script that makes Lighthouse configuration easier and allows for the testing of multiple URLs.

This wrapper we called “Lighthouse Keeper,” and we’ve just released it publicly: on GitHub we’ve published the source code and in the npm repo we’ve made available a Lighthouse Keeper npm module. Documentation on both sites describes how to set up and use Lighthouse Keeper – please let us know if you run into any issues.
