Easy Web Scraping With Node.js

Web scraping is a technique used to extract data from websites using a computer program that acts as a web browser. The program requests pages from web servers in the same way a web browser does, and it may even simulate a user logging in to obtain access. It downloads the pages containing the desired data and extracts the data out of the HTML code. Once the data is extracted it can be reformatted and presented in a more useful way.

In this article I'm going to show you how to write web scraping scripts in Javascript using Node.js.
