Example Web Server

apify/example-web-server

This example demonstrates how to use web server in actor as communication channel with outer world. Read article about this crawler in Apify knowledge base: https://kb.apify.com/actor/running-a-web-server

To run the actor, you'll need an Apify account. Simply create a new task for the actor by clicking the green button above, modify the actor input configuration, click Run and get your results.

API

To run the actor from your code, send a HTTP POST request to the following API endpoint:

https://api.apify.com/v2/acts/apify~example-web-server/runs?token=<YOUR_API_TOKEN>

The POST payload including its Content-Type header is passed as INPUT to the actor (usually application/json). The actor is started with the default options; you can override them using various URL query parameters.

Example
curl https://api.apify.com/v2/acts/apify~example-web-server/runs?token=<YOUR_API_TOKEN> \
-d '{ "hello": 123 }' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X POST

To use the API, you'll need to replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> with the API token of your Apify account (view here).
