Build reliable web scrapers. Fast.

Apify is the platform where developers build, deploy, and monitor
web scraping and browser automation tools.

powering the world's top data-driven teams

Web scraping can be challenging

Headless browsers, infrastructure scaling, sophisticated blocking.
Meet the full-stack platform that makes it all easy.

STEP 1

Develop with open-source tools

Simplify scraping with
Crawlee

Give your crawlers an unfair advantage with Crawlee, our popular library for building reliable scrapers in Node.js.


import { PuppeteerCrawler, Dataset } from 'crawlee';
const crawler = new PuppeteerCrawler({
async requestHandler({ request, page, enqueueLinks }) {
await Dataset.pushData({
url: request.url,
title: await page.title(),
});
await enqueueLinks();
},
});
await crawler.run(['https://crawlee.dev']);

Use your favourite libraries

Apify works great with both Python and JavaScript. Scrapy, Selenium, Playwright or Puppeteer. It's your choice.

from scrapy.spiders import CrawlSpider, Rule
class Scraper(CrawlSpider):
name = "scraper"
start_urls = ["https://the-coolest-store.com/"]
def parse_item(self, response):
item = Item()
item["price"] = response.css(".price_color::text").get()
return item

STEP 2

Deploy to Apify

Turn your code into an Apify Actor

Actors are serverless microapps that are easy to develop, run, share, and integrate. The infra, proxies, and storages are ready to go.

Learn more about Actors
import { Actor } from ’apify’
await Actor.init();
// Add your code and deploy!

Deploy to the cloud

No config required. Use a single CLI command or build directly from GitHub.

> apify push
Info: Deploying actor 'computer-scraper' to Apify.
Run: Updated version 0.0 for scraper actor.
Run: Building actor scraper
ACTOR: Pushing Docker image to repository.
ACTOR: Build finished.
Actor build detail -> https://console.apify.com/actors#/builds/0.0.2
Success: Actor was deployed to Apify cloud and built there.

STEP 3

Take your code for a run

Run your Actors

Start from Apify Console, CLI, via API, or schedule your actor to start at any time. It’s your call.

POST/v2/acts/4cT0r1D/runs
Run object
{
    "id": "seHnBnyCTfiEnXft",
    "startedAt": "2022-12-01T13:42:00.364Z",
    "finishedAt": null,
    "status": "RUNNING",
    "options": {
        "build": "version-3",
        "timeoutSecs": 3600,
        "memoryMbytes": 4096
    },
    "defaultKeyValueStoreId": "EiGjhZkqseHnBnyC",
    "defaultDatasetId": "vVh7jTthEiGjhZkq",
    "defaultRequestQueueId": "TfiEnXftvVh7jTth"
}

Never get blocked

Use our large pool of datacenter and residential proxies. Rely on smart IP address rotation with human-like browser fingerprints.

Actor.createProxyConfiguration({
countryCode: 'US',
groups: ['RESIDENTIAL'],
});

Store and share crawling results

Use distributed queues of URLs to crawl. Store structured data or binary files. Export datasets in CSV, JSON, Excel or other formats.

GET/v2/datasets/d4T453t1D/items
Dataset items
[
    {
        "title": "myPhone 99 Super Max",
        "description": "Such phone, max 99, wow!",
        "price": 999
    },
    {
        "title": "myPad Hyper Thin",
        "description": "So thin it's 2D.",
        "price": 1499
    }
]

Monitor performance over time

Inspect all Actor runs, their logs, and runtime costs. Listen to events and get custom automated alerts.

STEP 4
