Actor - Trustradius Scraper

Trustradius scraper

Since Trustradius doesn't provide a good and free API, this actor should help you to retrieve data from it.

The Trustradius data scraper supports the following features:

  • Search any vendor - You can search for any vendor and its detailed information according to your needs.

  • Scrape products - Scrape any products with their reviews in a very detailed and structured from Trustradius.

  • Scrape reviews - Fetch any reviews that have been published on Trustradius.

  • Scrape users - Scrape any users and retrieve their information.

  • Scrape and search - Within the integrated search functionality, you can search for anything right away from Trustradius.

Bugs, fixes, updates, and changelog

This scraper is under active development. If you have any feature requests you can create an issue from here.

Input Parameters

The input of this scraper should be JSON containing the list of pages on Trustradius that should be visited. Possible fields are:

  • search: (Optional) (String) Keyword that you want to search on Trustradius.

  • mode: (Optional) (String) Mode that is required when you provide a search keyword. Can be all, product, or vendor.

  • includeReviews: (Optional) (Boolean) Adding reviews into the product objects is optional and by default, it is false. If you want to scrape the reviews of the companies, then you can set this option as true.

  • startUrls: (Optional) (Array) List of Trustradius URLs. You should only provide user, product, vendor, or search URLs.

  • endPage: (Optional) (Number) Final number of page that you want to scrape. The default is Infinite. This applies to all search requests and startUrls individually.

  • maxItems: (Optional) (Number) You can limit scraped items. This should be useful when you search through the big lists or search results.

  • proxy: (Required) (Proxy Object) Proxy configuration.

  • extendOutputFunction: (Optional) (String) Function that takes a JQuery handle ($) as an argument and returns an object with data.

  • customMapFunction: (Optional) (String) Function that takes each object's handle as an argument and returns the object with executing the function.

This solution requires the use of Proxy servers, either your own proxy servers or you can use Apify Proxy.

Tip

When you want to have a scrape over a specific item URL, just copy and paste the link as one of the startUrl.

If you would like to scrape only the first page of a list then put the link for the page and have the endPage as 1.

With the last approach that is explained above you can also fetch any interval of pages. If you provide the 5th page of a list and define the endPage parameter as 6 then you'll have the 5th and 6th pages only.

Compute Unit Consumption

The actor is optimized to run blazing fast and scrape many items as possible. Therefore, it forefronts all item detail requests. If the actor doesn't block very often it'll scrape 100 items in 1 minute with ~0.04-0.06 compute units.

13  "search":"pro",
14  "mode":"all",
15  "maxItems": 5000,
16  "endPage": 2

During the Run

During the run, the actor will output messages letting you know what is going on. Each message always contains a short label specifying which page from the provided list is currently specified. When items are loaded from the page, you should see a message about this event with a loaded item count and total item count for each page.

If you provide incorrect input to the actor, it will immediately stop with a failure state and output an explanation of what is wrong.

Trustradius Export

During the run, the actor stores results into a dataset. Each item is a separate item in the dataset.

You can manage the results in any language (Python, PHP, Node JS/NPM). See the FAQ or our API reference to learn more about getting results from this Trustradius actor.
