Post: #1 with chrome mobile emulation
Currently we run all of our tests via and have the xml result files stored externally for trend reporting. I would like to force some tests that I run from batch to run in Chrome mobile emulation mode on our local/private instance agents. doesn't have an option for enabling chrome mobile emulation so I am trying to figure out another method easier than creating a real mobile agent on site. Could I create a new agent entirely and set the Chrome application executable (in a WPT script that launches chrome) to run permanently with --window-size=360,640, for example?

Or is there an easier method to accomplish this? Our sites are 100% responsive so the most important thing for me right now is being able to change the browser or screen size to a smaller form factor to compare loading and kb to desktop/full browser mode. I am not as concerned right now with testing on different os/mobile platforms.

RE: with chrome mobile emulation
Mobile emulation is literally just passing one more option to the runtest.php call (mobile=1). You're a LOT better off just adding it in to the

Otherwise you can use a script with the setviewport command to resize to whatever responsive size you want to test. You can use a static script that would work with all of the urls.

Something like:
setViewportSize    360    640
navigate    %URL%

That will automatically substitute the URLs being tested into the script and resize the browser before loading it.

Works perfectly. I will just keep a and a second with the following change. Thanks again Patrick.

"""Run one-off batch processing of WebpageTest testing."""

test_params = {'f': 'xml',
