URL to Rendered HTML API with GrabzItURL to Rendered HTML API

Use GrabzIt’s Rendered HTML API to execute a URL or HTML snippet in a browser instance and return the processed HTML to your code for further processing.

Do you need to get the result of a web page after JavaScript has been executed? Perhaps because you have written an app to scrape the web and need to return the rendered HTML that a browser will produce. Rather than just the raw HTML of a web page. Then this is the API for you!

However this API is also very new and is currently undergoing beta testing. So if you have any issues or suggestions for it please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can also try out this feature in our Screenshot Tool allowing you to get rendered HTML without writing any code.
