hi guys. I have a weird problem on CentOS 7 with xvfb. I have a nightmare nodejs program which launches multiple electron instances. Some of the electron processes crash intermittently in (which I don't mind that much as long as I can relaunch). I have a series of chained calls, but .catch() doesn't seem to see the crash (it seems like the node process thread just hangs). Is there a way to catch this?

@sammyyu what is the size of the vm? what is the provider/host?

node will only catch errors within the node script or processes spawn from the script. Things I'd check: I have the correct xvfb related packages installed to run it on centOS, dev/shm size, overall vm memory, the last two specially in terms of how electron instances are being ran

Hey, I've just realized that there aren't any alerts/confirms/prompts in electron. Is it possible to somehow detect them with nightmare? Let's say I have an angular app where button click fires a confirm dialog, asking me if I really want to delete an item. How would I simulate 'ok' or 'cancel' in this case? I think phantomjs has window.onAlert method, but can't find anything for nightmare.

@sammyyu possibly silly question: are you running with DEBUG?
@labodudev hm, i don't know if you'd be able to get at the response directly... you might have better luck putting your requests through a proxy and looking at the response there
@gebidesign the alert, prompt and confirm boxes are all taken care of by the stock preload
you should be able to subscribe to them with .on() using the page event
if you need them to behave differently, you'll need to write your own preload
