  1. Looking into DOM (needs to be improved)

title tag
img tags
some p or div

npm install beagle
  var beagle = require('beagle');
 
  beagle.scrape("http://fernetjs.com", function(errbone){
    console.log(bone.title);
  });
  var beagle = require('beagle'),
    request = require('request');
 
  request("http://fernetjs.com", function (errorresponsebody) {
    if (error) {
      return;
    }
 
    beagle.scrape(response, function(errbone){
      console.log(bone.preview);
    });
  });
