MetaInspector is an npm package for web scraping purposes. You give it an URL, and it lets you easily get its title, links, images, description, keywords, meta tags....
Metainspector is inspired by the Metainspector gem by jaimeiniesta
This version requires node v6 or higher, as some dependencies make use of various bits of ES6 functionality. The 1.x.x versions are compatible with v0.x - v4 releases of node, and should be used instead for older applications.
