Extract data from any website and feed it into GPT via the OpenAI API. Use ChatGPT to proofread content, analyze sentiment, summarize reviews, extract contact details, and much more.

This changelog tracks updates to both GTP Scraper and Extended GPT Scraper actors.

2024-05-01

Fixes

  • Fixed Actor resurrection bug that caused the Actor to not process GPT after being resurrected.

2024-03-05

Features

  • Added option to wait for a specific time and let the page load before scraping, useful for dynamic pages. (dynamicContentWaitSecs)
  • Added option to remove link URLs while keeping their displayed text. Helps to reduce the amount of content sent to GPT. (removeLinkUrls)

2024-03-05

Features

  • Added separate schema description field (input schemaDescription). By default the value is taken from instructions input.
  • Refactored and improved the Actor's input schema to be more user-friendly.

Fixes

  • Properly handle OpenAI's schema description too long error.

2024-01-31

Fixes

  • Eliminated the bug, when on some sites that contain erronous javascript the scraper would fail

2024-01-26

Fixes

  • Fixed "max pages per run" not working correctly on specific websites.

2024-01-21

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where the Actor would fail on "repetitive patterns in prompt" error from OpenAI. The Actor will now gracefully skip GPT processing for the webpages that trigger the error.

2024-01-10

Features

  • Added excludeUrlGlobs and renamed globs to includeUrlGlobs, the old globs input will still work the same.
  • Added initialCookies to be able to extract data behind login.
  • Added removeElementsCssSelector to enable custom HTML cleanup before sending to models.
  • Added support for GPT-4 Turbo model. (Extended GPT Scraper only)
  • Added skipGptGlobs to enable not using GPT on some pages that should only be used for finding further links. (Extended GPT Scraper only)

Fixes

  • Always return answer in the output for consistency. It was previously sometimes missing if jsonAnswer was available.
  • Improve error handling for errors coming from OpenAI. The actor will now fail if user doesn't have access to a model

2023-12-21

Features

  • Add GPT model settings temperature, topP, frequencyPenalty and presencePenalty to input
  • Allow using HTML as a prompt to models. By default, the actor still converts HTML to markdown before sending it to models.
  • Store HTML, screenshot and content (as it was sent to GPT) as links to the output. This is enabled by default but can be turned off.

Fixes

  • Fail an actor run if GPT doesn't accept formatted output schema defined by the user in input. This can happen because OpenAI doesn't fully follow JSON Schema specification but the problem happens very rarely.

Changes

  • Use LangChain to connect to GPT models. This means some error messages are different.
  • The default model temperature is now set to 0 instead of 1. This should improve the reliability of scraping. While this is technically a breaking change, it should mostly behave as an improvement so we don't consider need to release a separate version.
