Excavator is a powerful cloud-based tool that enables data extraction, web data retrieval, and performs various tasks during the ETL (Extraction, Transformation, and Loading) process. This software is especially useful when you are reselling products and your suppliers don't allow you access to their data in a usable format like Excel or CSV. In these cases, you have to manually gather information from their website.

By using Excavator, you can create a 'digger', a small robot that carries out web data retrieval tasks for you. The digger extracts information from websites, normalizes it, and saves it in the cloud. When your digger has finished its work, you can download the extracted data in various formats such as CSV, XLS, JSON, or even retrieve it using the REST API.

  • Automated web data extraction
  • Data normalization
  • Data storage in the cloud
  • Support for multiple data formats for download
  • REST API to retrieve your data

If you are not a programmer, you can use Excavator to build the configuration for your scrapers. It's a user-friendly tool where you select the data you want to extract and define the structure of your output data. We have video tutorials that explain how to use it on our test site.

Excavator automates and simplifies the extraction, normalization, and storage of data from websites.

On the other hand, if you are a web developer or programmer, you can use the meta-language to configure your digger. This way, you can tackle complex data extraction tasks. We have comprehensive documentation on the meta-language that will help you get familiar with this feature; additionally, we have several blog posts where we show how you can use different meta-language functions to address various real-world situations.
