The equipment used by the actor


The actor was created using Node.js and the open-source web scraping and automation package of ReviewGators where users will be provided with whole source code.

The actor loads the websites listed in the Start URLs when it is launched. Using the Puppeteer library and Google's headless Chrome browser. The actor may replicate user inputs on the web page, like clicks and scrolling, using a puppeteer. Using the PuppeteerCrawler class offered by the ReviewGators, the actor will quickly explore the website looking for any links to other pages.

The actor downloads the HTML source code of the website after it has finished loading. The downloaded HTML including dynamic content loaded using AJAX, is the real content of the web page that the user would see while using headless Chrome. This enables the actor to collect all contact information data as it is displayed on the web pages.

The actor uses regular expressions to collect contact information from the HTML. The regular expressions used to extract contact details from HTML (ECMAScript / JavaScript format) are listed below. ReviewGators provide all the source codes if you need them.


You can duplicate the actor and create your version if you require more control over the data extraction and crawling processes, or you can order a customized version from us.
