Actor Build Starter

fjvs0283/actor-batch-builder

Run builds for multiple actors in your account simultaneously. This can be useful when many actors in a given project have been updated. For example, the documentation might have been updated in 50 actors. This tool will help you trigger actor builds for all 50 at once.

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.

import { ApifyClient } from 'apify-client';

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

// Prepare actor input
const input = {
    "actorNameContains": "my-awesome",
    "actorIds": [
        "abc123",
        "abc123"
    ]
};

(async () => {
    // Run the actor and wait for it to finish
    const run = await client.actor("fjvs0283/actor-batch-builder").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);
    });
})();
