Scraper allows you to easily pull in HTML content from remote pages, selecting elements by CSS selector.

Simply specify a URL and root selector; Scraper will import the remote content and make the adjacent DOM available in EE variable form.

For example…

{exp:scraper url=“http://some-external-site.com” selector=“div.foo”}

  {tag}
  {outertext}
  {innertext}
  {plaintext}
  {count} / {total_results}

  {if children_total_results}
    {children}
      {tag}, etc.
      {attr:id}, {attr:class}, etc.
      {children_count} / {children_total_results}
    {/children}
  {/if}

  {parent} ... {/parent}
  {first_child} ... {/first_child}
  {last_child} ... {/last_child}
  {next_sibling} ... {/next_sibling}
  {prev_sibling} ... {/prev_sibling}

  {find selector=”.bar”} ... {/find}

{/exp:scraper}
