  • Capture URL of the site your want to scrap.
  • Capture selector, eg : img.thumbnail, ...

How to use 1. Require class: require_once 'class.HttpRequest.php'; 2. Using: $http = new Httprequest(); 3. Using: $http->setServer($_POST['domain']);

`if (isset($_POST['domain'])) { //it is a URL of page that you want to scrap`



`$html = $http->send();`

`if (isset($html->error)) {`

	echo json_encode($html); exit();


`$result = $html->contents;`

`if (isset($_POST['tag-element'])) { // it is a selector (img.thumbnail)`

	$response = array();

	$checkData = $result->find($_POST['tag-element']);

	if (count($checkData)) {

		foreach ($checkData as $key => $check) {

			array_push($response, $check->outertext());
