  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • ONLYOFFICE ONLYOFFICE Docs — document collaboration in your environment
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • CodiumAI - TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs
  • x-ray

    The next web scraper. See through the <html> noise.

    X-Ray is a Node.js library created for scraping the web. So, it is no surprise that its API is heavily focused on that task. Thus, it abstracts most of the complexity we have seen in Puppeteer and Axios from developers.

  • node-osmosis

    Web scraper for NodeJS

    Osmosis is very similar to X-Ray because it is a library designed explicitly for scraping webpages and extracting data from HTML, XML, and JSON documents.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • axios

    Promise based HTTP client for the browser and node.js

    If you are familiar with Axios, you know that this option may not sound too sexy for scrapping the web. However, it is a simple solution that can get the job done in many situations using a library you already know and love while keeping your codebase simple.
