BrowserFetcher
A Browser-ish client implementation with JS rendering support
Skrape{it} provides different fetcher implementations. All of the Fetchers behave different and you should pick them depending on your needs.
The BrowserFetcher is a special http client. It will send an HTTP-request (with given request parameters, headers etc.) to a given url and returns a result that consists of the http response status as well as of the response headers and body. The special thing is that it will be have like a browser and will return a rendered DOM as body instead of a plain simple body string.
It is not as fast as the other fetchers since it take some time to render a response, but the result will look simular to what you would get when surfing a page in your browser.
Thereby it is the best pick if you want to call client-side rendered websites, e.g. Single-Page-Applications build with react.js, vue.js, angular and so on.
if you do not need skrape{it}'s full feature set you can use the BrowserFetcher standalone by adding the following dependency to your project.
