In order to have #3936 we actually don't need screenshots and serialized content what cost a lot of disk space. It would save the disk space if we can limit the output only to the used filters.

What to change

Add CLI parameter "--only-filters" ( and adapt accordingly JavaScript part.

I think we should treat the data we save as modules which can be enabled and disabled individually, there will likely be more in future. Right now we seem to have four such modules, so the command line flags should be:

  • --enable-requests/--disable-requests
  • --enable-headers/--disable-headers
  • --enable-screenshots/--disable-screenshots
  • --enable-dom/--disable-dom

By default all these modules should be enabled, but we should be able to disable them individually as required.
