  "categories": [
    "Jewelry & Accessories"
  ],
  "scrapedAt": "2019-11-28T03:26:00.887Z",
  "title": "Lightweight Giant Check Wool & Silk Scarf",

  "color": "Limestone",
  "price": 390,
  "salePrice": 234,
  "currency": "USD",

    },

    }
  ],

}

Compute units consumption

Keep in mind that it is much more efficient to run one longer scrape (at least one minute) than more shorter ones because of the startup time.

The average consumption is 0.2 Compute unit for 1000 actor pages scraped

Extend output function

You can use this function to update the result output of this actor. This function gets a Cheerio handle $ as an argument so you can choose what data from the page you want to scrape. The output from this will function will get merged with the result output.

The return value of this function has to be an object!

You can return fields to achive 3 different things:

  • Add a new field - Return object with a field that is not in the result output
  • Change a field - Return an existing field with a new value
  • Remove a field - Return an existing field with a value undefined
($) => {
    return {
        "saleEnd": $('.sale-ends span').text().trim(),
        "salePrice": 0,
        url: undefined
    }
}

This example will add a new field saleEnd, change the salePrice field and remove url field

{
  "saleEnd": "Sale Ends 11/30/19",      
  "categories": [
    "Jewelry & Accessories"
  ],
