System Requirements

Installation

This video shows the process for a basic installation.

Installation Notes

API Query and Output Parameters

See http://wave.webaim.org/api/details for all parameters and API usage details (you will, of course, need to modify URLs to point to your local installation). Additionally, the stand-alone API allows you to pass javascript=true|false, screenshot=true|false, viewportwidth={integer}, and evaldelay={integer} parameters. If set, these will override any parameters set in the config above.

MAMP Installation Notes

If installing on MAMP on a Mac, the following modifications may be necessary if an error is returned by the API. Open the /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/envvars file and comment out the first DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH line and the export line as follows:

if test "x$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH" != "x" ; then
# DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="/Applications/MAMP/Library/lib:$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH"
else
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="/Applications/MAMP/Library/lib"
fi
#export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH
