Try the Extraction API

This demo automatically extracts h1, and a tags from the page. If you want to extract other elements, you need to create an account and start using our API, which allows you to submit a request URL with the elements you want, whether you want to render Javascript using the render_js feature and run Javascript using the custom_js feature.

elementsThe implementation on the right is preconfigured to retrieve h1 headings and a link tag elements from any website that you enter. Want to configure your own? Start with our API docs.
render_jsAllow applications that load content aynschronously (after initial page load) to fully load pages before extracting the elements. You can also use the wait_for API feature.
custom_jsSometimes you might want to scroll down a page, click a button, or submit a form. You can do this by running custom JS prior to extraction of content using this API feature.
