Is there any recommended packages for crawling or scrapping a website in the client side?


#1

Hello everyone,
I have been trying to do some websites crawling / scraping in my Meteor app, but all the packages that I found seems to be working only in the server side,
so is there any package to do some scraping in the client side ??

No, this isn’t really feasible from the client side due to the Same-origin policy.
