The web was designed for humans – the majority of websites do not provide a public API, which means that they cannot be directly used by apps. Apifier is hosted web scraper for developers that can turn any website into an API using a few lines of JavaScript.
With Apifier, users have the full power of JavaScript to define their crawlers. Therefore they can crawl and extract data from websites that employ AJAX, complex pagination or infinite scroll.
