To run the code examples, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token. For a more detailed explanation, please read about running actors via the API in Apify Docs.

const { ApifyClient } = require('apify-client');

// Initialize the ApifyClient with API token
const client = new ApifyClient({
    token: '<YOUR_API_TOKEN>',
});

// Prepare actor input
const input = {
    "search": "harry potter",
    "startUrls": [
        "https://www.goodreads.com/search?q=game+of+thrones&qid=",
        "https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/59576065-acceptance",
        "https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1362.Best_History_Books_",
        "https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/fiction",
        "https://www.goodreads.com/genres/business"
    ],
    "maxItems": 20,
    "endPage": 1,
    "extendOutputFunction": ($) => { return {} },
    "proxy": {
        "useApifyProxy": true
    }
};

(async () => {
    // Run the actor and wait for it to finish
    const run = await client.actor("epcsht/goodreads-scraper").call(input);

    // Fetch and print actor results from the run's dataset (if any)
    console.log('Results from dataset');
    const { items } = await client.dataset(run.defaultDatasetId).listItems();
    items.forEach((item) => {
        console.dir(item);
    });
})();
