    Create a Web Scraper with Cypress

    cypressCypress

    Cypress can do more than end-to-end testing. It can fully drive remote applications, including ones you don't own, much more reliably than Selenium.

    In this example, we'll use Cypress to build a web scraper to mine data from applications we don't own. This data could be used to power other applications, filtered for data relevant to your use cases, sent to your calendar, or any number of uses.

    Since Cypress is easy to automate, it's easy to integrate with cron or a job framework to run a scraper in an automated fashion.
