What is No-code Scraper?
No-code Scraper allows you to schedule, manage, and export data for any of your scraping jobs. You can create them using the extension or by choosing one of the templates from our dashboard.
Creating a new collection
In your dashboard, go to the No-Code Scraper > Collection Management tab. There you can choose to create one of three different collections. We're going to show you how to start with the Universal collection, which requires you to use No-code Scraper extension. You can add No-code Scraper Extension to your browser by downloading it from the Chrome Web Store.
Authenticating via No-code Scraper
The Free scraping button lets you enjoy free scraping. For additional features, like scheduling, managing, and exporting your scraped data, click on the Login button. Log in with your Smartproxy account credentials.
Scheduling a new scraping job via No-code Scraper
If you want to save your selections and get data on a recurring basis (hourly, weekly, monthly, etc.), click on the Schedule button at the top-right corner of the extension toolbar after you're done selecting elements in the website you wish to scrape.
This will automatically redirect you to Smartproxy's dashboard, where you will be able to create a new task for a recurring scraping.
Type in the name of the new collection you are creating. Pick a name that will help you to identify this scraping task later.
All scheduled tasks require No-code Scraper subscription
If you don't remember your No-code Scraper password, you can always reset it by clicking on Authentication method in the sidebar menu under the No-code Scraper tab and changing the password there.
Schedule times & export options
No-code Scraper allows you to select different options for each of your scraping task. You may schedule these tasks for every hour, day, week, or month to get recurring results of the data you select with No-code Scraper extension.
You can completely disable the export option by clicking on the switcher in the right corner of No-code Scraper and setting it to Disabled. This will hide the export options; however, you will still be able to download your collections from the main management window.
The main No-Code Scraper window
In the main window of No-Code Scraper, you can download your collections in JSON or CSV formats (even if you have disabled the export option when creating the collection). You can also see the status of your job and the date when it was last executed.
If you want to delete a particular job, simply click on the three dots and confirm that you want to delete it.
Creating a collection from a template
You can choose to create a collection straight from the dashboard by clicking on the Create new button.
Creating a Google collection from a template
You can choose from either the Google or the Amazon template. The only difference is that the Google template allows you to choose a Location.
You only need to type in the name for your collection, the query you will be sending to Google, choose which location you wish to send your request from and to which domain.
The rest of the configuration is the same — simply select the frequency and finish date for your scheduled requests, then choose your delivery and storage types (if you choose to keep this option enabled).
