pjscrape is a framework for anyone who's ever wanted a command-line tool for web scraping using Javascript and jQuery. Built for PhantomJS, it allows you to scrape pages in a fully rendered, Javascript-enabled context from the command line, no browser required.



  • Client-side, Javascript-based scraping environment with full access to jQuery functions
  • Easy, flexible syntax for setting up one or more scrapers
  • Recursive/crawl scraping
  • Delay scrape until a "ready" condition occurs
  • Load your own scripts on the page before scraping
  • Modular architecture for logging and writing/formatting scraped items
  • Client-side utilities for common tasks
  • Growing set of unit tests

Please see http://nrabinowitz.github.io/pjscrape/ for usage, examples, and documentation.
