How to run splash using Docker toolbox?
Before you can get started, you will need to install Docker Toolbox on your machine. Docker Toolbox is a version of Docker that is designed to run on older systems and/or systems without native virtualization. It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
Follow the steps to run Splash
Open the Docker Quickstart Terminal, which will start up Docker Toolbox.
Run the following command to pull the latest version of the Splash Docker image from Docker Hub −
$ docker pull scrapinghub/splash
This command will download the latest version of the Splash Docker image to your machine.
Run the following command to start a new container from the Splash Docker image:
$ docker run -p 8050:8050 scrapinghub/splash
This command will start a new container from the Splash Docker image and bind it to port 8050 on your machine. The -p 8050:8050 option specifies that the container should be bound to port 8050 on the host machine, which allows you to access the Splash web interface from your web browser.
Access the Splash web interface by visiting the following URL in your web browser:
If you are using Docker Toolbox on Windows, you will need to use the IP address of the Docker virtual machine instead of localhost to access the Splash web interface. You can find the IP address of the Docker virtual machine by running the following command in the Docker Quickstart Terminal:
$ docker-machine ip
For example, if the IP address of the Docker virtual machine is 192.168.99.100, you would visit the following URL in your web browser to access the Splash web interface:http://192.168.99.100:8050

Capabilities of Splash
Headless browsing − Splash can be used as a headless browser, meaning that it can be controlled and accessed programmatically without the need for a GUI. This makes it easy to integrate Splash into automated workflows or custom scripts.
Load balancing − Splash includes built-in load balancing capabilities, which allow you to distribute rendering requests across multiple instances of Splash. This can be useful for cases where you need to scale up your rendering capacity or if you want to ensure high availability for your rendering service.
HTTP caching − Splash includes an HTTP cache that allows it to store and reuse previously fetched resources, which can improve rendering performance and reduce bandwidth usage.
Custom middleware − Splash allows you to write custom middleware scripts that can be used to modify or augment rendering requests or responses. This can be useful for cases where you need to add custom functionality or modify the behaviour of Splash.
