Dataset Validity Checker

equidem/dataset-validity-checker

Automatically checks, whether default datasets created by runs of an actor differ too much from the previously encountered ones, allowing it to warn you about web scraping problems caused by, e.g., a website layout changing, or other significant changes in the resulting data.

Dataset Validity Checker

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 = {};

(async () => {
    // Run the actor and wait for it to finish
    const run = await client.actor("equidem/dataset-validity-checker").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);
    });
})();
