Octoparse functions to dig data based on html code owned by a web apps, data with a special script, for example encapsulated data can not be retrieved by octoparse.
The application for me is very useful if we need data from a web application with many domains, because we only need to make one logic / plot, then it is applied to all domains, with a note, having the same system.
The free version so far is enough, but it always happens to manually make a flow for every time you want to scan a web.
The tutorial can be seen in the following video:

In the video, octoparse is used to crawl google scholar account profile data based on the name of the institution, then look for the value of the security, is there a * sign and a line. later finally also obtained double account profile data and accounts that are not real people (based on names and profiles).
