Empty template with basic structure for the Actor with Apify SDK that allows you to easily add your own functionality.



Use cases

Web scraping



2This module defines the `main()` coroutine for the Apify Actor, executed from the `` file.
4Feel free to modify this file to suit your specific needs.
6To build Apify Actors, utilize the Apify SDK toolkit, read more at the official documentation:
10from apify import Actor
13async def main() -> None:
14    """
15    The main coroutine is being executed using ``, so do not attempt to make a normal function
16    out of it, it will not work. Asynchronous execution is required for communication with Apify platform,
17    and it also enhances performance in the field of web scraping significantly.
18    """
19    async with Actor:
20'Hello from the Actor!')
21        # Write your code here
