Creating a new extractor

To create a new extractor, perform the following steps:

  1. In a web browser, open the Import.io dash.import.io dashboard.
  2. At the top of the left-side navigation pane, click New Extractor. The Create a new extractor dialog box appears.
  3. Type or paste the URL of the webpage containing the data you want to extract. Once you’ve entered a syntactically-correct URL, Go changes from disabled to enabled.
  4. Click Go to initiate creation of the extractor.

Import.io takes a moment to load and analyze the webpage. When Import.io detects data on the webpage, Import.io automatically selects possible data you might want to extract from the page, opens the editor, and displays the newly-created data table.

Next, use the editor to add, delete, and reorganize the columns to your liking, and to refine the data you are looking for within the columns.
