a minimal puppeteer crawler api

Huh?

  • crwlr:
    • handles the boring boilerplate work of actually crawling a site
  • You provide:
    • <String> url to start from
    • <Puppeteer Browser> browser instance with your own .launch(options)
    • pageOptions as you wish:
      • <Object> goto to be provided as options to page.goto(url, options)
      • <Function> prepare(page) binds event handlers and/or set properties for every new page
      • <Function> resolved(response, page) fires after every page.goto() has resolved

Installation

$ npm install --save crwlr
