Example of an Apify actor with source code hosted in a GitHub Gist. For example, this is useful if you want to have public code examples accompanied by a working API that anyone can try straight away.

The code examples below show how to run the Actor and get its results. To run the code, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token, which you can find under Settings > Integrations in Apify Console. Learn more
