Informations about the package goutte

Goutte, a simple PHP Web Scraper

Goutte is a screen scraping and web crawling library for PHP.

Goutte provides a nice API to crawl websites and extract data from the HTML/XML responses.

Requirements

Goutte depends on PHP 5.5+ and Guzzle 6+.

Installation

Add fabpot/goutte as a require dependency in your composer.json file:

composer require fabpot/goutte

Usage

Create a Goutte Client instance (which extends Symfony\Component\BrowserKit\Client):

use Goutte\Client;

$client = new Client();

Make requests with the request() method:

// Go to the symfony.com website
$crawler = $client->request('GET', 'https://www.symfony.com/blog/');

The method returns a Crawler object (Symfony\Component\DomCrawler\Crawler).

To use your own Guzzle settings, you may create and pass a new Guzzle 6 instance to Goutte. For example, to add a 60 second request timeout:

use Goutte\Client;
use GuzzleHttp\Client as GuzzleClient;

$goutteClient = new Client();
$guzzleClient = new GuzzleClient(array(
    'timeout' => 60,
));
$goutteClient->setClient($guzzleClient);

Click on links:

// Click on the "Security Advisories" link
$link = $crawler->selectLink('Security Advisories')->link();
$crawler = $client->click($link);

Extract data:

// Get the latest post in this category and display the titles
$crawler->filter('h2 > a')->each(function ($node) {
    print $node->text()."\n";
});

Submit forms:

$crawler = $client->request('GET', 'https://github.com/');
$crawler = $client->click($crawler->selectLink('Sign in')->link());
$form = $crawler->selectButton('Sign in')->form();
$crawler = $client->submit($form, array('login' => 'fabpot', 'password' => 'xxxxxx'));
$crawler->filter('.flash-error')->each(function ($node) {
    print $node->text()."\n";
});
