  • puppeteer

    Headless Chrome Node.js API

    Project mention: Web Scraping With Puppeteer for Total Noobs | dev.to | 2023-01-30

    Web scraping is something I never thought I'd do. I'm primarily a UI developer, although my career started as a backend developer. I've never been asked at a job to perform any scraping tasks, and I'd never had a personal project that required me to scrape some data until recently. I'll share what I've learned, which is honestly probably just scratching the surface of what you can do with a technology like Puppeteer. In this post I'll walk you through installing and writing a Node.js script that will scrape a weather forecast website. The weather forecast site isn't my personal project that I mentioned earlier, it's more of a contrived example of how to get started with web scraping using Node.js and Puppeteer.

  • crawlee

    Project mention: Spidergram is a collection of tools my company Autogram has built or enabled over the past several years to support our work to automate content inventories for large websites: it's part web crawler, part domain model, and part mad science. We released the first public beta today. | reddit.com/r/webscraping | 2022-12-02

    Apify's Crawlee project, with a specific focus on Playwright. We decided to focus on it for now because the majority of our projects involve some kind of cross-browser evaluation for clients, and Playwright's ability to swap in Safari and Firefox rendering engines was a huge help.

  • mini-media-player

  • schemats

    Generate typescript interface definitions from SQL database schema

    Project mention: GraphQL error handling to the max with Typescript, codegen and fp-ts | dev.to | 2022-03-07

    :::note When using remote APIs, we often have the possibility to generate the types automatically from a JSON schema for REST APIs, from protobuf files for gRPC-based APIs, from a database schema, etc. You might even be using an external API through an SDK that already provides you with all types. In such cases, the creation of specialized Error classes is not mandatory. However, it might still be a good idea to do so to provide application-specific errors rather than bubbling up 3rd-party low-level errors. For such cases, the upcoming Ecma TC39 proposal for Error Cause is useful as it allows to chain errors. Polyfills exist: Pony Cause or error-cause. :::

  • add-and-commit

    Automatically commit changes made in your workflow run directly to your repo

    Project mention: vim-dirtytalk: spellcheck dictionary for programmers 📖 | reddit.com/r/vim | 2022-04-24

    I have a repo where I auto-generate the SchemaStore catalog for Neovim. I use the EndBug/add-and-commit action to commit any changes. Maybe you could use a similar approach so that the wordlists in the repo are always kept up-to-date.

  • deno-puppeteer

    A port of puppeteer running on Deno

    Project mention: Unity ships Node-IPC vulnerability | reddit.com/r/programming | 2022-03-21

    In an ideal world, yes, but in reality Deno's permission model is quite hard to use so many libraries require disabling a lot of it, sometimes everything like puppeteer. Other example is the library I maintain: it requires --allow-net since you can't whitelist a domain and all its subdomains, just a domain.
