PHPScraper is a universal web-util for PHP. The main goal is to get stuff done instead of getting distracted with selectors, preparing & converting data structures, etc. Instead, you can just go to a website and get the relevant information for your project.

PHPScraper is a minimalistic scraper framework that is built on top of other popular scraping tools.

Features:

  • Direct access to page basic features like: Meta data, Links, Images, Headings, Content, Keywords etc.
  • File downloading.
  • RSS, Sitemap and other feed processing.
  • CSV, XML and JSON file processing.

Example Use


// create scraper object
$web = new \Spekulatius\PHPScraper\PHPScraper;
// go to URL
$web->go('https://test-pages.phpscraper.de/content/selectors.html');

// elements can be found using XPath:
echo $web->filter("//*[@id='by-id']")->text();   // "Content by ID"

// or pre-defined variables covering basic page data:
$web->links;  // for all links
$web->headings;
$web->images;
$web->contentKeywords;
$web->orderedLists;
$web->unorderedLists;
$web->paragraphs;
$web->outline;  // basic page outline
$web->cleanOutlineWithParagraphs;  // basic page outline
