It all starts at the data source and deciding which data fields we need to extract. Once we have a clear understanding of the requirement we can start building a crawler to find the data in the website.

In this step, we extract and parse the meaningful data elements from the raw scraped data that is in HTML format. In some cases extracting data may be simple such as getting the product details, job or business listings from a web page.

The data extracted using a parser won’t always be in the format that is suitable for immediate use. Most of the extracted datasets need some form of “cleaning” or “transformation”.

Pyramid of Puppeteer

Puppeteer is a node library which provides an API to control Google Chrome and Chromium. It can be used to scrape all aspects of a Chrome (or Chromium) window including the Chrome Developer Tools. Today, we’ll be scraping lobste.rs.

Web Scraping is the task of downloading a web page and extracting some kind of information from it. I recently made a little project with an Arduino board with a LCD display attached. Using Johnny-Five, which lets us program the Arduino using Node.js, I wanted to fetch the temperature measured at the top of a mountain, and show it on the Arduino board. I used Puppeteer to do the task of scraping. Puppeteer is a great tool built by Google. It’s a Node library we can use to control a headless Chrome instance. This means we are basically use Chrome, but programmatically. There are many practical uses for Puppeteer, including automating testing, make screenshots, create server-side rendered versions of single page apps, and more.
