Build reliable web
scrapers. Fast.

Apify is the platform where developers build, deploy, and publish
web scraping, data extraction, and web automation tools.

powering the world's top data-driven teams

Web scraping can be challenging

Headless browsers, infrastructure scaling, sophisticated blocking.
Meet the full-stack platform that makes it all easy.

STEP 1

Develop with open-source tools

Simplify scraping with
CrawleeCrawlee

Give your crawlers an unfair advantage with Crawlee, our popular library for building reliable scrapers in Node.js.


import { PuppeteerCrawler, Dataset } from 'crawlee';
const crawler = new PuppeteerCrawler({
async requestHandler({ request, page, enqueueLinks }) {
await Dataset.pushData({
url: request.url,
title: await page.title(),
});
await enqueueLinks();
},
});
await crawler.run(['https://crawlee.dev']);
Simplify scraping example

Use your favorite libraries

Apify works great with both Python and JavaScript, with Playwright, Puppeteer, Selenium, Scrapy, or any other library.

Start with our code templates
from scrapy.spiders import CrawlSpider, Rule
class Scraper(CrawlSpider):
name = "scraper"
start_urls = ["https://the-coolest-store.com/"]
def parse_item(self, response):
item = Item()
item["price"] = response.css(".price_color::text").get()
return item

STEP 2

Deploy to Apify

Turn your code into an Apify Actor

Actors are serverless microapps that are easy to develop, run, share, and integrate. The infra, proxies, and storages are ready to go.

Learn more about Actors
import { Actor } from 'apify'
await Actor.init();
// Add your code and deploy!
Turn code into Actor example

Deploy to the cloud

No config required. Use a single CLI command or build directly from GitHub.

Deploy to Apify
> apify push
Info: Deploying Actor 'computer-scraper' to Apify.

Deploy to cloud example

STEP 3

Take your code for a run

Run your Actors

Start from Apify Console, CLI, via API, or schedule your Actor to start at any time. It’s your call.

POST/v2/acts/4cT0r1D/runs
Run object
{
    "id": "seHnBnyCTfiEnXft",
    "startedAt": "2022-12-01T13:42:00.364Z",
    "finishedAt": null,
    "status": "RUNNING",
    "options": {
        "build": "version-3",
        "timeoutSecs": 3600,
        "memoryMbytes": 4096
    },
    "defaultKeyValueStoreId": "EiGjhZkqseHnBnyC",
    "defaultDatasetId": "vVh7jTthEiGjhZkq",
    "defaultRequestQueueId": "TfiEnXftvVh7jTth"
}
Run Actors example

Never get blocked

Use our large pool of datacenter and residential proxies. Rely on smart IP address rotation with human-like browser fingerprints.

await Actor.createProxyConfiguration({
countryCode: 'US',
groups: ['RESIDENTIAL'],
});
Never get blocked example

Store and share crawling results

Use distributed queues of URLs to crawl. Store structured data or binary files. Export datasets in CSV, JSON, Excel or other formats.

[
    {

        "price": 999
    },
    {
        "title": "myPad Hyper Thin",
        "description": "So thin it's 2D.",
        "price": 1499
    }
]
Store example

Monitor performance over time

Inspect all Actor runs, their logs, and runtime costs. Listen to events and get custom automated alerts.
