Web Scraper

Web Scraper is a tool for extracting data from websites. Users provide a sitemap that specifies which pages on a site to visit and what elements on each page to extract data from. Web Scraper is able to extract data from dynamic and interactive pages that often confuse other tools. It can also simulate button clicks and scroll pages to make them load additional data. Detailed documentation on setting up Web Scraper is available on the website, including a series of tutorial videos. The collected data can either be exported in CSV format or shipped off to a CouchDB server. Web Scraper is available as a free Chrome extension. A Cloud version of Web Scraper, optimized for bulk data extraction, is also available for a fee.
