Headless Browser

The ScrapeOps Proxy API Aggregator enables you to use the headless browser functionality of our underlying proxy providers by adding the render_js=true to your requests.

Using a headless browser is often needed if you want to scrape a Single Page Application built with frameworks such as React.js, Angular.js, JQuery or Vue.

Using the Headless Browser functionality will consume 10 API Credits.

Advanced Functionality

You can control the headless browser by using the API's JS Scenario functionality or the following shortcut query parameters:

  • Wait Time: allows you to wait a specific amount of time before returning the response.
  • Wait For Selector: allows you to wait for a specific element on the page before returning the response.
  • Scroll: Enables you to scroll the page in the y-axis before returning the response so you can scrape pages with infinite scrolls.
