Description from extension meta

Scraper gets data out of web pages and into spreadsheets.

Image from store Scraper
Description from store Scraper is a very simple (but limited) data mining extension for facilitating online research when you need to get data into spreadsheet form quickly. It is intended as an easy-to-use tool for intermediate to advanced users who are comfortable with XPath. * 1.7 - feature: copy data to clipboard (as tab-separated values) - fix: upgraded oauth for Google Docs export - fix: upgraded manifest to v2 and added web store promotional images * 1.6 - fixed issue with spreadsheet titles ending with colons during export - other minor fixes * 1.5 - minor fixes * 1.4 - added presets feature - smaller xpaths are auto-generated - newlines are preserved in export - slightly improved table selector won't capture rows containing no TDs

  • (2021-09-13) Nenad Pantelic: Love the extension, it gets the job done perfectly.
  • (2021-09-03) Loic HELIAS: Love it, but appreciate a feature to export/import preset settings.
  • (2021-07-27) Faiz Sheikh: Is there a way we can extract the html code of the given xpath?
  • (2021-07-26) Junqi Bei: why how: Frames are not supported at the moment. Please open the frame in a new tab or window and try scraping again.
  • (2021-06-15) Bruce Leau: 插件里有隐藏广告
  • (2021-06-01) Glenn Gutmacher: This extension is great if you know XPath syntax. I love that it lets you save (unlimited?) selectable settings for each website you want to scrape. The only things missing I'd like to see are: 1) ability to export the saved settings so you can share with colleagues (similar to how Recipes work in the DataMiner.io extension or how Sitemaps work with webscraper.io extension) and 2) ability to navigate to next page to continue scraping (like Instant Data Scraper allows)
  • (2021-05-14) Chris Liu: it dosen't show on my google page, so I can't even lauched the plugin.
  • (2021-02-14) Siddharth Ahuja: Works like a charm....
  • (2021-02-13) David Fortson: It's useless. Google Docs blocks the app.
  • (2020-12-11) Gabriel Espinoza: works great!
  • (2020-11-12) Faiz Sheikh: Very helpful tool. But I want to know how can I scrape/extract html data type. Like data must include the html tags as well, is there a way to do this with Scraper?
  • (2020-10-11) Alexandte RFST: no way to scrape table automatically
  • (2020-08-04) wayne booth: doesn't do anything and no help to make it work... shame
  • (2020-04-03) Filippo Bacci: Very flexible once you get to know how to select the context and familiar with selector rules, perfect for my use-case.
  • (2020-04-03) Sergio U: I love this extension. A way to export/import presets would be wonderful.
  • (2020-04-01) aziz nasir: not working This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In. and this is the only way you can use this app not working with google drive
  • (2020-02-14) アクロイドマガン: Thank you!!It is better that scraper can be opened by shortcut keys.
  • (2020-02-01) paulette rodriguez: "Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In." Am I doing something wrong? I have tried with both @gmail and non-gmail accounts and can't get it to export. Hmmm.
  • (2020-01-22) Ilya Maklakov: please add shortcut for this extension
  • (2020-01-03) THE_KINGSCHOOP: à chaque fois que je veux scraper sa me met le site chrome web store
  • (2019-10-23) Saijo George: Love this, this si an amazing plugin, would love to see an option to export / import the presets that we have created over time.
  • (2019-09-25) Andrea Moro: Simply it doesn't work. The scrape similar is not capturing anything when the table is in CSS, and given the fact this is based on XPath extraction, it's a big fail. I tried even on a wikipedia pages. There are instances where it recognise the table, but then the scrape button doesn't do anything it promises.
  • (2019-09-18) Bruno Caldeira: Muito bom mesmo, só faltou uma hotkey para economizar cliques.
  • (2019-08-26) Marcos Elias Claudio Araujo: Acho excelente esta extensão. Gostaria de saber se tem ela para o Firefox...
  • (2019-08-24) George Cooke: Brilliant and very useful extension. Once you understand the basics of XPath and how Scraper works with the one 'Selector' and multiple Columns; It can be very powerful. Thanks alot Dev, I really appreciate this great Extension!
  • (2019-08-10) Charlie Gwaltney Reviews: it Works perfectly
  • (2019-07-10) Gitty Rosenberg: Love this extension! Saved me weeks of works! Wondering if there's a way I can change the settings so that when I export my scraped data to a Google Doc file, it doesn't automatically open it in my browser, but instead it just saves it to my drive without opening.
  • (2019-05-11) Alan Mitchell: Where it store preset data? How can I use preset data from one pc to another? Means Is there any option to export preset setting and import in another pc?
  • (2019-05-09) San Kumar: One of the most useful hidden gems for a web developer. Absolutely love it!
  • (2019-04-14) Reda Ahmed: This is amazing extension, but is there any chance that it can work automatically and update the values on the sheets after exact amount of time on new line/cell ??
  • (2019-03-20) Shishir Gupta: It's amazing! 5 star if it had a 'presets backup' option (cloud/local file)
  • (2019-03-18) Amazing. I'm a huge fan of this extension.
  • (2019-02-06) Martin Garay: Danger! Warning!. Inject changes to the Websites, modifying links, pointing to hacked sites to steal data and install Trojans. When you do not use it, turn it OFF! ¡Peligro! ¡Advertencia! Inyecte cambios en los sitios web, modifica enlaces, Apuntando a sitios pirateados. Cuando no lo uses, ¡apágalo!
  • (2019-01-11) Qazaqbiz: did you have a documentation?
  • (2018-12-29) VILAS BHOSALE: Like other reviewers said, results may change depending on what part or parts of the table you select. I find it strange that the data does not copy/paste consistently. For example, the first time I use this on a page, the data pastes into Excel concatenated into the first row, with each new line as a new row. If I return to the same web page with the same data a few minutes later and run Scraper again, the data pastes each value into separate cells.
  • (2018-10-18) Lucas Wehmuth: Plugin fantástico! Excelente ferramenta de para automatizar a extração de dados em páginas da internet. Recomendo! 10/10
  • (2018-09-22) Zulfia Sarieva: Не понял только на jQuery не работает что ли?
  • (2018-08-29) Charlie Zimmerman: Good tool, but wish it supported frames.
  • (2018-07-31) Jan Erik Horgen: Can't do a thing with it, keep getting "Frames are not supported at the moment. Please open the frame in a new tab or window and try scraping again." Uninstalling, sry.
  • (2018-07-28) Lucy Gilbert: I can't really say I hate it because I haven't been able to use it.But because the app doesn't actually open, I can't give it more than 1 star! If it's me, please guide me to how to get this app to function.
  • (2018-06-19) John Moed: I love Scraper
  • (2018-06-14) Azonia Proviewer: awesome tools... please add more XPATH selector not only //h3/a; please add more not only LINK and URL... please add DURATION TIME for youtube video scrabe... thank you
  • (2018-05-30) Carter Wilson: Great tool but wish it was possible to not copy the headers/titles when copying to clipboard
  • (2018-05-28) masood salehi: Nice tool!!!
  • (2018-05-22) P T: Worked for a while. Now, I'm getting this message: "Frames are not supported at the moment. Please open the frame in a new tab or window and try scraping again." Please update the extension.
