snapscrape

Snapscape it

scraping the web with node on request.

Use it.

var scrapper = require("snapscrape");
 
scrapper.scrape("http://google.com", function(res, body){
    console.log(arguments);
});

cool beans

Add to it

 
scrapper.use(/*middleware*/);
 
//comes with a htmlparser 
scrapper.use(scrapper.htmlParser);
scrapper.scrape("http://google.com", function(res, body){
    // see googles javascripts 
    console.log(res.html("body").text());
});

Build for it

the middleware is very similiar to connects middleware

module.exports = function(response, body, next){
    next();
};

response is the response from the server your pulling from

body is the body from server, or aka the goods

next is a function called to pass payload to next middleware function or callback;

to come

probably hooking this into a promise system so that you can have nice errors;

var error = function(){
    console.log("you fail")
}
scrapper.scrape("FAIL", function(res, body){
    
}, err);

and test!
