Examples

Cookies Support

Since 1.3.5 you can use cookies. In some cases where the request is not successful, a second request using puppteer will be made. However the request could take 2x longer. To avoid this you can use cookies. This is optional though.

The recommended way to get cookies is by installing the cookies.txt extension for the browser and then go to www.tiktok.com and export the cookies for current site. Then save the cookies.txt file and give the path of the cookie file as a parameter to the TTScraper class.

This is the only supported way to use cookies for now.

import { TTScraper } from "@saipulanuar/tiktok-scraper-ts";

const TikTokScraper = new TTScraper("./cookies.txt"); // all requests will try to use this cookie if it's valid

Fetch info for a single video

import { TTScraper } from "@saipulanuar/tiktok-scraper-ts";
const TikTokScraper = new TTScraper();

(async () => {
  const fetchVideo = await TikTokScraper.video("link", true); // second argument set to true to fetch the video without watermark
  console.log(fetchVideo);
})();

// OR

import { fetchVideo } from "@saipulanuar/tiktok-scraper-ts";

(async () => {
  const video = await fetchVideo("link");
  console.log(video);
})();

// ==>

Video {
  id: '7049800036758080773',
