A small efficient actor that loads a web page, parses its HTML using Cheerio library and extracts the following meta-data from the <HEAD> tag, such as page title, description, author etc.

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.

# Set API token

# Prepare Actor input
cat > input.json <<'EOF'
  "urls": [
  "proxy": {
    "useApifyProxy": true

# Run the Actor
curl "$API_TOKEN" \
  -X POST \
  -d @input.json \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json'
