import Pageres from 'pageres';

await new Pageres({
	delay: 2,
	beforeScreenshot: async (page, browser) => {
		await checkSomething();
		await page.click('#activate-button');
		await page.waitForSelector('.finished');
	}
})
	.source('https://github.com/sindresorhus/pageres', ['480x320', '1024x768', 'iphone 5s'], {crop: true})
