Replacement for the legacy Apify Crawler product with a backward-compatible interface. The actor uses PhantomJS headless browser to recursively crawl websites and extract data from them using a piece of front-end JavaScript code.

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
