JSON DOM Response

Get your web scraping results in JSON format.

Traditional web scraping usually results in extracting the raw HTML from a website and using it with an HTML parser in order to manipulate the data. However, certain scenarios may require a more structured result. In these scenarios, returning the data in a JSON format may be the best option.

With BrowserAPI, you can enable the json_dom option, which will return the scraped website in a JSON format. Moreover, this option can be used both when render_js is turned on or off.

Your full GET request should then be sent to the following address:

https://api.webscrapingapi.com/v1?api_key=<YOUR_API_KEY>&url=<TARGETED_URL>&json_dom=1

JSON DOM Response Integration Examples

curl --request GET --url "https://api.webscrapingapi.com/v1?api_key=<YOUR_API_KEY>&url=https://httpbin.org/&json_dom=1"

Important! The url parameter has to be encoded. ( i.e. &url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.webscrapingapi.com%2F )
