Test your actors with varying inputs and expected outputs, duplicates, bad output fields, or unexpected log messages using Jasmine

The code examples below show how to run the Actor and get its results. To run the code, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token, which you can find under Settings > Integrations in Apify Console. Learn more
