#' Tools to Work with the 'Splash' JavaScript Rendering Service
#'
#' 'Splash' <https://github.com/scrapinghub/splash> is a javascript rendering service.
#' It’s a lightweight web browser with an 'HTTP' API, implemented in Python using
#' 'Twisted'and 'QT' and provides some of the core functionality of the 'RSelenium' or
#' 'seleniumPipes'R pacakges but with a Java-free footprint. The (twisted) 'QT' reactor is
#' used to make the sever fully asynchronous allowing to take advantage of 'webkit'
#' concurrency via QT main loop. Some of Splash features include the ability to process
#' multiple webpages in parallel; retrieving HTML results and/or take screenshots;
#' disabling images or use Adblock Plus rules to make rendering faster; executing custom
#' JavaScript in page context; getting detailed rendering info in HAR format.
