Help with Start from Cursor

Open

weightless_greeting opened this issue
2 months ago

Hello, i want to collect every single comment on a given post. When I run this scraper normally, it usually returns around 60-100 comments from a post with 160, for example. I saw that there is an option to Start from cursor, which requires a value from the default storage of a run, under the lastCursor key. I've tried copying the values from my last run and pasting them in the Start from Cursor option, but it still gives me the same comments, so I would like to know if I'm doing something wrong or if there is another way to collect all comments from a given post.

Thanks in advance

Hi, It was quite tricky to get the proper cursor value from state key of key-value store. So i changed the code to save the cursor value under dedicated lastCursor key.

I'll run the scraper a few times and check, but thanks a lot for the time!

Also you can just resurrect the stopped run if it gets stopped before scraping all records. I noticed that the using lastCursor value is still tricky and requires some coding knowledge. WIll figure out some solution soon
