API Endpoint Method

ScraperAPI exposes a single API endpoint for you to send GET requests. Simply send a GET request to http://api.scraperapi.com with two query string parameters and the API will return the HTML response for that URL:
  • api_key which contains your API key, and
  • url which contains the url you would like to scrape
You should format your requests to the API endpoint as follows:
<?php
$url =
"http://api.scraperapi.com?api_key=APIKEY&url=http://httpbin.org/ip"; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,
TRUE); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER,
FALSE); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST,
0); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER,
0); $response = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); print_r($response);
To enable other API functionality when sending a request to the API endpoint simply add the appropriate query parameters to the end of the ScraperAPI URL.
For example, if you want to enable Javascript rendering with a request, then add render=true to the request:
<?php
$url =
"http://api.scraperapi.com?api_key=APIKEY&url=http://httpbin.org/ip&render=true"; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,
TRUE); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER,
FALSE); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST,
0); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER,
0); $response = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); print_r($response);
To use two or more parameters, simply separate them with the “&” sign.
<?php
$url =
"http://api.scraperapi.com?api_key=APIKEY&url=http://httpbin.org/ip&render=true&country_code=us"; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,
TRUE); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER,
FALSE); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST,
0); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER,
0); $response = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); print_r($response);
