Goutte Vs Proxies API

The world of web scraping is varied and complex, and Proxies API sits at one of the most crucial junctions. They are allowing web scrapers/crawlers to bypass IP blocks by using a single API endpoint to access our 20 million-plus high-speed proxies on rotation.

Example:

curl "http://api.proxiesapi.com/?auth_key=YOUR_KEY&url=URL"

One of the questions we get frequently is how we are different from services like OctoParse or Diffbot. Many times it is like comparing Apples and Oranges. Still, when we send this comparison table to our customer’s developer team, their CXO, their marketing, or SEO team, they typically get it quite quickly if we are a convenient service or not.

So here is how we are different from Goutte.

Goutte is a screen scraping and crawling web library for PHP.

Goutte provides a nice API to crawl websites and extract data from the HTML/XML responses.

PHP Version: PHP 7.1 .

Example of submitting a form in Goutte

$crawler = $client->request('GET', '');
$crawler = $client->click($crawler->selectLink('Sign in')->link());
$form = $crawler->selectButton('Sign in')->form();
$crawler = $client->submit($form, array('login' => 'fabpot', 'password' => 'xxxxxx'));
$crawler->filter('.flash-error')->each(function ($node) {
print $node->text()."\\n";
});
