This actor is under maintenance and it may unreliable.
This template is a production-ready boilerplate for developing an Actor with
PuppeteerCrawler. Use this to bootstrap your projects using the most up-to-date code.
We decided to split Apify SDK into two libraries, Crawlee and Apify SDK v3. Crawlee will retain all the crawling and scraping-related tools and will always strive to be the best web scraping library for its community. At the same time, Apify SDK will continue to exist, but keep only the Apify-specific features related to building actors on the Apify platform. Read the upgrading guide to learn about the changes.

For complete information see this article. In short, you will:
- Build the Actor
- Run the Actor
If you would like to develop locally, you can pull the existing Actor from Apify console using Apify CLI:
brew install apify-cli
npm -g install apify-cli
Pull the Actor by its unique
<ActorId>, which is one of the following:
- unique name of the Actor to pull (e.g. "apify/hello-world")
- or ID of the Actor to pull (e.g. "E2jjCZBezvAZnX8Rb")
You can find both by clicking on the Actor title at the top of the page, which will open a modal containing both Actor unique name and Actor ID.
This command will copy the Actor into the current directory on your local machine.
apify pull <ActorId>
