Why Convert cURL to a PHP Web Scraper?

During web scraping tasks, it's often convenient to access the network tab of the browser's dev console and select "copy as cURL request" for a specific HTTP request. This provides a ready-to-use cURL command that can be executed from the terminal. However, what if you want to execute this request using PHP code? The online cURL to web scraper converter is here to assist you. It's essential to understand that this converter utilizes the cloud infrastructure of the ScrapeNinja web scraping API to send the HTTP request to the target website. This grants you the powerful features of the ScrapeNinja API, such as proxy rotation, retries, and a genuine Chrome TLS fingerprint.

How to set up environment for PHP code execution of the web scraper?

To execute the converted code, you will need to have PHP7+ installed. Copy&paste the code from "output" textarea to your PHP environment, in a new folder. You can name the converted script as you like, for example scraper.php. ScrapeNinja provides a basic Composer-based package for a more convenient usage of ScrapeNinja API. It is basically a thin wrapper around Guzzle package.

Launch composer require restyler/scrapeninja-api-php-client from your project folder to install dependencies. The run the scraper from your terminal: php scraper.php

General Advice Regarding Request Headers

If your request includes a Cookies header, examine its contents closely. It might contain data that can be used to track you, such as your original request IP address, your user session ID (if you're authenticated on the website), or other sensitive information. Consider removing the cookies header entirely to see how the website responds.

User-agent header is generally not required. ScrapeNinja appends some sensible user-agent string under the hood so you might consider removing this one, as well. Of course you can try to supply this header to override ScrapeNinja default user-agent.
